COMSATS University Islamabad is a leading world ranked public sector university of the Ministry of Science and Technology, having seven campuses and a principal seat located in Islamabad. COMSATS University was envisioned as Pakistan’s first exclusive Institute of Information Technology. Keeping in view its primary mandate of Science and Technology, CUI has emerged as a leading general university in Computer Science, Engineering and Technology as well as Basic Sciences, Design and Architecture within a span of two decades. The QS Asian rankings 2022 placed it at #136 in Asia, while it has been ranked consistently among Top 500 ranked universities of the world by subject in Engineering and Technology and Computer Science by the Times Higher Education, UK (2022).

CUI boasts of a diverse student body comprising 36,000 students, having over 500 international students from 24 nationalities. While 2700+ faculty members, with over 1100 PhDs (comprising the largest pool of PhDs in Pakistan) cater to the education needs of these students through 22 Departments, 8 research centers and 6 faculties. Over 80,000 students have so far graduated from CUI including 425+PhDs and are serving in various leadership positions and key roles in the public and private sector.

CUI has evolved a strong research and innovation driven culture right from its early years. The Student Startup Business Center at CUI brews entrepreneurial spirit in students ensuring that their academic research translates into products. Furthermore, Cubator-1ne, COMSATS’ technology incubation center supports early-stage knowledge-based businesses. Overall, CUI’s startup ecosystem is well equipped to support new entrepreneurial ideas with technical and management support as well as seed funding for promising start-ups and spin-offs.

I am pleased to note that the cooperation of CUI with National Ideas Bank (NIB), IdeaGist and Pak-100 teams in the NIB Ideas Competition is highly productive and in line with the vision of the Honorable President of Pakistan and Chancellor CUI, Dr. Arif Alvi. I wish our students and NIB success and would like to see the next billion-dollar enterprise emerging from these entrepreneurial ideas and bring pride to our nation.
