History

Sir Syed Center for Advanced Studies in Engineering (SS‐CASE‐IT) Institute of Technology (SS‐CASE‐IT) became federally chartered degree awarding institute in year 2018.Providing quality higher education is not some thing new to SS‐CASE‐IT.Its history dates back to year 1998.SS‐CASE‐IT started its journey as an affiliated institute (CASE) with University of engineering and technology Taxila (UET Taxila).

Center for Advanced Studies in Engineering (CASE), had been a project of not‐for‐profit Engineering Education Trust (EET). It was in the January of 2001 when we formally talked about establishing CASE; an institution of higher technical learning in Pakistan. We debated on its feasibility and gauged our commitment to this national cause and identified the dissemination of advanced knowledge in engineering and management to our professional engineers and scientists as the need of the hour.

In 1998, a research and development organization named Communications Enabling Technologies (CET) Pakistan was established in Rawalpindi. Soon, CET headed by Dr. Shoab Ahmed Khan (Tamgha‐e‐Imtiaz) attracted some of the best professionals in Pakistan. Dr. Farrukh Kamran (Tamgha‐e‐Imtiaz), Dr. Saeed Ur Rahman, and Dr. Sohail Naqvi (Former Executive Director, HEC) joined CET in its early days and played a key role in establishing CASE. Later, this group was joined by more outstanding professionals like Dr. Syed Ismail Shah (Ex‐Chairman Pakistan Telecom Authority), Dr. Aamer Iqbal Bhatti, Dr. Amir Qayyum, Dr. Imtiaz A. Taj, Dr. Sheikh Muhammad Farhan, Saleem Ahmed Khan, Dr. Mohsin Rahmatullah, Hammad Ahmed Khan, Dr. Zaheer Ahmed and Durdana Habib. Engineering Education Trust (EET) was established in May 2001.

We take pride in starting CASE with graduate education and new research culture to bring Pakistan on the road to prosperity through a knowledge‐based economy by developing human resource in higher technical education.

UET Taxila granted affiliation of graduate program in Computer Engineering with 60 students. This led to the establishment of CASE on September 11, 2001 at Software Technology Park Islamabad. CASE was inaugurated by then the Federal Minister of Science and Technology Prof. Dr. Atta‐ur‐Rehman.

The institute had the support of an excellent teaching faculty of 10 PhDs and 8 MScs at that time. Later the new programs were established in following order:

  • Due to overwhelming demand, CASE took the initiative of establishing the department of Engineering Management in Fall 2002 headed by Dr. Ali Sajid. In that year, 192 students registered in Computer Engineering and 41 students in Engineering Management. CASE programs attracted high quality graduate students.
  • In 2004 the CASE decided to start its undergraduate program in Electrical Engineering with financial support from CARE (PVT) Ltd and got accredited from Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) before the graduation of its first batch in 2008.
  • In fall 2008, BBA program was started to align engineering education with business development.
  • After the successful establishment of the these programs, CASE gradually introduced various new programs in following years including Bachelor of Computer Science, Masters in Electrical Engineering, Masters in Software Engineering, Masters in Project Management, and Masters in Management.

CASE has not only excelled in education but also on the forefront of research activities. We developed product focused research needs of our society with our partner CARE PVT Ltd providing industrial insights. CASE acquired research funding from CISCO Systems, PTCL and Ignite ICT R&D Fund, Ministry of IT, Government of Pakistan in last 12 years worth of Rs 130 million.

CASE was inaugurated by Minister of S&T Dr. Atta Ur Rehman.
 

Sir Syed CASE Institute of Technology (SS‐CASE‐IT): A Degree Awarding Federally Chartered

By the Grace of All Mighty Allah, Engineering Education Trust (EET) obtained the Federal charter for Sir Syed CASE Institute of Technology (SS‐CASE‐IT) on May 24, 2018 after tireless struggles of trustees of EET and commendable efforts of all present and past staff and faculty members of CASE.

Brig (R) Iqbal Shafi, Begum Majida Shafi, Dr Tahir Hussain, Dr Fatima Farhee Rehman, and many old Aligarians had a vision to transform CASE into Sir Syed CASE Institute of Technology to pass the message of our great leaders of Tehreek e Pakistan (Quaid e Azam, Allama Mohammad Iqbal,Sir Syed Ahmed Khan) to our youth and continue the mission of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan by spreading education in science and technology with a blend of Islamic teachings. Today, this institute is ready to achieve these goals.

CASE, therefore, has achieved a major milestone to enter into new era thus becoming a degree awarding multidisciplinary institute in Islamabad to meet the raising demand of world class university education in engineering, basic sciences and humanities on its campuses, in order to generate highly skilled and innovative young persons. SS‐CASE‐IT has succeeded CASE and all its programs, human resource and infrastructure are transferred in SS‐CASE‐IT.
