Rector’s Message



By the grace of Allah, CUI has evolved exceedingly well in a short span of time. The Institute takes pride in the high-quality of its teaching and research activities, in engineering, mathematics and management sciences. Many other disciplines are in the pipeline as well. The Institute aspires to generate a class of engineers and scientists who can add value to the society.

CUI enjoys an enviable presence in the country and abroad. The diversity of Institute’s instruction and research areas enable studies within the various disciplines as well as in interdisciplinary programs. This enables our scholars to meet contemporary and imminent national needs.

A paradigm shift is taking place in higher education. The role of institutes of higher learning is being revisited. Universities are shifting from being institutions providing instruction to institutions producing learning. CUI endeavors to be the leader of this change in Higher Education. The Institute fully endorses the transition ‘from the sage on the stage to the guide on the side’. It provides opportunities for intellectual stimulation and active learning through innovative pedagogy and co-curriculum activities. At CUI, we not only aspire to instill professional acumen in our students, but also inspire the students to be adequately prepared for life, work, and civic participation. CUI embodies the spirit of learning and leadership. The Institute ensures a conducive environment where students and faculty can maximize their abilities.

We invite you to share our passion.

Prof. Muhammad Tabassum Afzal
