University Institute of Information Technology

Message of the Director  

It is immense pleasure to take responsibility for leading the University Institute of Information Technology (UIIT). The UIIT is striving hard to contribute effectively to produce quality human resource by developing a sustainable IT education system to meet the technology needs of the country. We provide a conducive learning environment to promote high quality Computer Science and Information Technology education to produce dedicated, hardworking and learned graduates. Hardworking students, learned faculty, dedicated staff and committed administration are our strength leading us to an excellent place among institutions of high repute. The uniqueness of UIIT amongst other IT institutes is that we are being hosted at PMAS-Arid Arid Agriculture University. The agriculture is one of the largest consumers of ICT, therefore, our students and faculty can also work on providing IT based solutions through their research. This makes our research a demand driven and of high socioeconomic importance as we can provide IT based models and decision support systems. We have strong commitment to make our institute’s graduates employable by inculcating skills, appetite of hard work and eagerness to accept professional challenges so that they can excel in their professional careers.
