Department of Software Engineering

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 become the center of excellence and the aspiration in the discipline of software engineering by producing highly skilled professionals, who with their analytical capabilities and proficiencies apply the technical knowledge for socio-economic development.

Mission Of Program

To provide a technically sound ambiance of learning and realizing the frequently changing traits of the software industry to pursue sustainable socio-economic growth with the sense of ethics, professionalism and leadership to serve the community and humanity at large.
