Facts & History


COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, Sahiwal was established in 2007. We set the sails with only one department and five faculty members but now we are growing with each passing moment. At the moment, around 2876 students are studying in 18 graduate and undergraduate programs in Management Sciences, Computer Sciences, Bio Sciences, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mathematics. Another testimonial of our worth is the trust of people on us which is multiplying day by day. With such shrug of trust from the parents and students, we have established Civil Engineering Department which will offer admissions in coming semester.

Another testimonial of our worth is the trust of people on us which is multiplying day by day. With such shrug of trust from the parents and students, we have recently established Department of Heritage Studies to revive and restore Harappa ruins. The establishment of the “Department of Heritage Studies” at CIIT Sahiwal would be highly beneficial to both the institute and the public. The foundation of Montgomery Museum is the result of such efforts. The department, with the assistance of Punjab government, has started its work and I assure you that we will create a history by producing research on this old civilization. We are going to establish an Art and Cultural Village at Harappa very soon.


Further to this, we have gathered a team of high profile internationally known professional to work in this area. Moreover, COMSATS Institute of Information Technology hosted 3-days Harappa International Conference on August 15 – 17, 2015. First two days sessions were held in Lahore including Poster Exhibition and visit of historical sites in Lahore whereas, closing session was held in CIIT Sahiwal after the visit of the delegates to Harappa site and Museum. The conference was attended by a large number of audiences including the officials of department of Archaeology, Govt. of Punjab, Lahore Museum, American Institute of Pakistan Studies (AIPS), Departments of Archaeology and History, Universities of the Punjab, Sindh, KPK and Baluchistan. It was gratifying to note that all campuses of CIIT were represented by their Directors and senior faculty. The media was also present and the event was recorded and reported by many newspapers and TV channels.

The academic heart of the university is our faculty. We are fortunate that CIIT Sahiwal is having remarkably skilled, talented and competent faculty of 145 members. 52 faculty members are having PhD degrees from renowned universities of the world. These faculty members are wonderful researchers and have published 180 high impact factor research papers last year and they have submitted 45 research projects to different national as well as international funding agencies.
