Computer Engineering Universities in Pakistan


According to a definition from the IEEE Computer Society, “Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates several fields of electrical engineering and computer science required to develop computer systems.” This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work, but also how they integrate with other fields of science as a whole.

Computer engineering is too broad a field to be studied under a single undergraduate course. Thus, undergraduate engineers are allowed to choose from a variety of different topics that constitute computer engineering as a whole. These subfields depend upon the different functionality of each component in a computer system. These may include Communications, Computational systems, Networks, Embedded Systems, Signal Processing etc. The general task of a computer engineer is to be able to design, analyze and synthesize an electronic system that promises to carry out a set of given task for some specific input.

Computer engineering is sometimes mixed with Software Engineering. Although not mutually independent, the two fields possess very different purposes and require entirely different skill sets to operate. In simple terms, Computer Engineering deals with the manufacturing of hardware while Software Engineering deals with encoding programs to run that hardware.

Computer Engineering Job Scope

Computer Engineering met its peak demand around the start of the last decade. Though not as widely fetched as before, Computer Engineers still enjoy a lot of demand from both the public and private sector. Companies of the magnitude of Google, Yahoo, Dell, Facebook, Intel and Microsoft recruit computer engineers to cater for their ever growing merchandise.

Local companies also employ computer engineers for different tasks. A number of companies in the private sector frequently recruit computer engineers. In the public sector, companies related to telecommunication and data handling employ computer engineers.

Computer Engineering Main Subjects

Computer Engineering includes the following major subjects.

  • Algorithms and Computing –Instance of logic written in software
  • Data Structures – Organizing and storing data
  • Logic and Sequential Circuit Design – Synthesis and Analysis of Sequential Circuits
  • Computer System Architecture – Relationship between hardware components of a computer
  • Digital Signal Processing – Mathematical manipulation of an information signal
  • Digital Image Processing – Image processing using computer algorithms
  • Database Engineering – Defining constraints and parameters for data storage
  • Integrated Circuits – Miniature electronic circuits used to improve computing
  • Electronics – Study of data storage and computing components
  • Electric Circuits – Study of basic components of an electric circuit

  • Kh G A Mujtaba

    Asalam o alikum warahmatulah.Please tell me which university is best for computer engineering?and whether I can do computer engineering after ics(physics)?

    • naumanahmed19

      First try for NUST, UET or govt universities. Then GIK or COMSATS. Yes I think you can apply. In my class there were many ICS students.

      • Kh G A Mujtaba


      • faizan

        but pec did not register ics students i am from comsats wah..

        • Nauman

          no that’s not true.

          • saeed ahmad

            Sir plz mujhay detail se bata de k Metric k baad computer engineering bannay k liye kis kis cheez ki zarurat hai?

          • umar

            metric k bad ap FSC pre-engineering kar k bhi computer engineer ban sakty ho aur ics kar k bhi, iskay ilawa agar kuch select kia to mushqil hai.
            thanks for visiting

  • Mehtaab Ahmed

    Salaam Dear Brother,
    Can i do computer engineering after Matric…???

    • Nauman

      Bro you cant do computer Engineering after martic. You have to pass Fsc to get admission in a university. But you can do DAE(Computer) from a technical board. Its 3 year program and you will be get associate engineering diploma.

  • muhammad aamir

    i am doing ece from comsat its good or not in coming spring semester

    • Nouman Ali

      Its best. :)

  • haramfatima

    bro can i do software engineering after Bsc?

    • Nauman

      yes you can

  • raowajid

    sir m a i.c.s student can i als0 d0 software engineering?

    • Nouman Ali

      Yes you can do software engineering but not Computer Engineering. It requires F.Sc.

      • Nauman

        Nouman thanks for helping and guiding students.

        • Nouman Ali

          :) It’s my pleasure, Brother.

  • nomi

    computer enginering merit maximam kitna hota he aur minimum kitna in all punjab universties?

    • Nauman

      depend krta hai but private mein 70

    • Nouman Ali

      Its merit is rather less than Electrical or Electronics. But i recommend this field is best.

  • azeem sadiq

    sir computer engineering ky leya bahria university theek rahy gi or is ki jobs pak main han ya nahi?

    • Nouman Ali

      THere are a lot of jobs for computer engineering. But I would personally prefer COMSATS for Computer Engineering. The rest is your choice.

  • USama

    Mne fsc ki hai mn abb computer engennering krna chahta hn but fees ziada afford ni kr skta to ks uni mn apply krn
    N computer ki or koi field ho achi to plz bta dn
    Plz Reply me

    • Nouman Ali

      Computer engineering is the best field if you are much interested in computer sciences.

  • Maham Warraich

    main ICS Ke student hun or computer Engineering karna chahti hn .. Is it possible?

    • Nauman

      you must need to pass chemistry its a requirement by PEC. I think it would be better you apply for CS. Its much better.

      • saeed ahmad

        Sir plz mujhay detail se bata de k Metric k baad computer engineering bananay k liye kis kis zarurat hai?

  • cisco ccie lab

    EMAIL :
    Skype : ciscoccie.lab

    @ ADMIN Please contact me I have something to discuss with You its a little urgent.

  • Ess Yew

    Sir,can i do sofware engineering after ics in these subjects i.e computer,economics,islamiat group.
    Plzz answer

    • Nouman Ali

      I think ICS consists of Computer, Physics and Mathematics. If you haven’t computer and Mathematics then you can’t study Software Engineering. Because Mathematics is too much important for Coding and programming purpose.

      • Ess Yew

        i mean if i do ics with comp,economcs n islmiat group then can i get admission in uni fa softwr engineering or not?

        • Nouman Ali

          No you can’t. You’ll have to do ICS with Maths, Computer and Physics.

          • Ess Yew

            but ics to ki hogi na. Ap mje confirm krk btaen plz :-(

          • Nouman Ali

            You can choose one among Economics/Statistics/Physics. But Mathematics and Computer Sciences is mandatory.
            I hope you are clear now. :)

      • Ayaan noor
