About Software Department, MUET

Mehran University of Engineering & Technology established a separate Software Engineering department realizing the need of this degree program for the upcoming era. Initially the department was combined with the Department of Computer Systems Engineering but at present the Department of Software Engineering has its own building which was inaugurated by Governor of Sindh Dr. Ishrat- ul-Ibad Khan on Saturday 16th April 2011. The Department of Software engineering, aims to provide high quality of education with the best current practices, theory and research which integrate professional studies in the field of software engineering.

Vision Of Department

To produce professionals who have a mastery of principles, theory, practices and processes necessary to produce quality Software systems.To prepare them to apply proficiently their engineering and interpersonal skills to design, develop deploy and maintain Software systems.To develop a capacity for innovation, research and a passion for lifelong learning in Software Engineers.

Mission Of Program

To train and prepare liberally educated, articulate and skilled Software Engineers for leadership and professional careers who can meet current needs and foresee future requirement of the nation in the field of Software by deploying skilled professional practice.

Program Educational Objectives

To produce engineers, who can work in constantly changing disciplines and to join an appropriate and respectable level position in a computing-related field, and to maintain their professional skills in rapidly evolving field.

To produce graduates, who can apply concepts, theories and practices to provide innovative and creative solutions for complex software systems and computing problems.

To prepare graduates with strong sense of professional & ethical values to work effectively both as an individual and collaboratively in a team environment.
