The President

Lt Gen Hamid Rab Nawaz, HI(M) (Retd)

The Foundation University Islamabad is a star project of the Fauji Foundation devoted to public uplift and community service. It gives me great satisfaction to note that since its inception, the Foundation University has progressed at a steady pace. Indeed, the University’s talented, well-focused faculty has worked tirelessly to achieve both academic and administrative excellence to meet demanding benchmarks set by its eminent Board of Governors. The Foundation University is vigorously pursuing a process of mutual collaboration with renowned universities and accreditation of its professional programmes with local and international regulatory bodies. This will open new vistas of research, development and academic recognition at national and international level. Of special consequence will be benefits accruing for medical students desirous of appearing in the US Medical Licencing Examination (USMLE) and UK-based Professional Assessment Board Examinations (PLAB). Today, change is a buzzword. The faculty as well as the students must surmount unforeseen, emerging challenges with a dynamic, innovative response. In this context, the role of the University faculty as role models acquires a pivotal position. I would like to emphasise that true success is the outcome of a perfect blend of right vision, right knowledge and right conduct. The ongoing process of exponential increase in knowledge will consign imperceptive minds to dust bins of history. Only adaptive, cognitive models will carry the day. During the current year, work will commence on an affiliated dental college, additional engineering programmes and a minimal invasive surgery research and training centre. These are important milestones on our success journey which demand commitment and innovation. In this evolving student-centric, research-friendly environment, I wish both the faculty and the students the very best in their endeavour to push the frontiers of knowledge to new limits. May Almighty Allah bless the University with thumping success in its enduring quest for knowledge and adroit application for the betterment of our society and the global community! w w w . f u i . e d u . p k

Job Opportunities

Graduates of Telecommunication engineering have been gainfully employed in the public sector (PTCL NESCOM, etc) and private sector mobile phone companies (Mobilink, Ufone, Zong and Warid etc.) as well as industries enterprises. Many students are also undergoing advanced studies both with in the country and abroad. It has been gratifying to see that graduates of FUIEMS are contributing very effectively in the development of the country as well as the Engineering Sector.

n today’s world, high academic achievement is very important. Many people in Pakistan are dissatisfied with the standard of undergraduate education available to them and would prefer to follow a more rigorous curriculum. FUIEMS aims to provide an educational program which combines the best that can be offered: FUIEMS embraces students trained in a vast array of subject areas who have

the talent to see that true innovation knows no artificial boundaries. The most positive aspect of my studying here is that I would be able to apply the knowledge not just in my career, but in my personal life. I feel that in FUIEMS I have now been trained to think logically. It is like receiving a golden key for my life journey.

MS-Computer Science

(With Specialization in Business Intelligence) Introduction: The Master of Science in Computer Science is a highly technical program and therefore presumes previous experience in Computer Science. The core courses provide an advanced understanding of theoretical and applied computer science, which allows the student to begin exploring the specialization areas. It prepares students for advanced positions in industry and research. The Master of Science in Computer Science is a highly technical program and therefore presumes previous experience in Computer Science. The program consists of four core courses and a specialization track of three courses. The core courses provide an advanced understanding of theoretical and applied computer science, which allows the students to begin exploring the specialization areas. It prepares students for advanced positions in industry and research. Business Intelligence consists of the processes, technologies, and tools needed to turn data into information, information into knowledge, and knowledge into plans that drive profitable business action. It encompasses data warehousing, business analytic tools, and content/knowledge management. In today’s rapidly moving and increasingly digital world, it has become even more necessary to understand advancing technologies and

processes in order to succeed. Business leaders must have the ability to collect and interpret information concerning customers, suppliers, competitors, and make decisions that affect their company’s performance. The MS-CS with Business Intelligence degree program helps the students gain a solid foundation in both technology and quantitative decision making tools that will aid their ability to interpret information. This program seeks to put the technology and mathematical concepts into a relevant, functional business application context. The MS-CS with Business Intelligence degree gives the students the ability to create business models for forecasting and business analysis along with a fundamental understanding of Business Intelligence technologies. The students also develop the ability to integrate information from all aspects of the organization into a big picture understanding and conduct assessment of workflow, data analysis, and technology skills essential to maintaining effective operations.

Program Structure

The graduate program should embody sufficient flexibility to fulfill the requirements of either an “academic” degree (Breadth-Based) obtained in preparation for further graduate study or a terminal “professional” degree (DepthBased). The discipline of Computer Science has matured

Foundation University enough that the distinction between academic and professional programs is beginning to appear. However, the concept of an utterly terminal program is not widely accepted in the field. All Computer Science academic programs should provide the possibility of additional study in the field. The proposed program is intended to establish an integrated breadth and depth based curriculum model to assure that the common aspects of various potential masters’ programs in Computer Science are captured. The proposed curriculum structure may be implemented within four-semester time. A project/thesis work may be unified with student’s chosen depth oriented specialties. Generally graduate programs are structured with a common core of fundamental material and wide range of options for the rest of the course work. ƒƒ Approved courses of 24 credits in the major subject (600 level & above) ƒƒ Deficiency courses may be below 600 level, but these will neither be given numerical grades nor

counted towards CGPA and shall be given letter grades P (pass) or F (fail) ƒƒ Research and Thesis will have 9 credits. ƒƒ Any additional course work as prescribed in individual cases. Further details are contained in Foundation University MPhil/MS and PhD Regulations.
