Information Technology University of the Punjab

Information Technology University of the Punjab (ITU), located in Lahore, came into being in 2012 in order to advance scholarship and innovation in the areas of science, technology and engineering. ITU aspires to emulate the success of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) through focus on cross-disciplinary applied research, the cultivation of an entrepreneurial culture in teaching and research, the maintenance of a close collaboration with the Information and Communication Technology industry and the development of strong ties with government funding agencies. With a structure that combines the best features of both public and private sector universities, ITU aims to serve as a center for excellence in academia, research, entrepreneurship and innovation.

Information Technology University of the Punjab (ITU) is the sole licensee of MIT Technology Review in Pakistan and holds complete publishing and translation rights. All rights reserved. MIT Technology Review Pakistan will showcase and promote the rapidly expanding science, technology and entrepreneurship landscape of Pakistan.

Information Technology can be used in any number of innovative ways to develop unique solutions to the problems faced by Pakistan today. ITU was thus formed to enable Pakistani youth to develop such solutions, and also to cater to the acute shortage of trained manpower faced by Pakistan’s IT industry. Modelled along the lines of the world’s leading technology universities, ITU has a project-oriented and design-centered approach to education. The university aims to foster a new generation of IT engineers and entrepreneurs who will help transform the economic and technical landscape of Pakistan.

ITU is a first of its kind institution in Pakistan; the university seeks to nurture an environment of high-tech research and entrepreneurship with its state-of-the art facilities, world class faculty, its in-house start-up incubator and well-established government and industry linkages.

ITU believes very strongly in academic collaborations with other national and international institutions. To this end, a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between ITU and the Middle-East Technical University (METU) to form an academic collaboration. Founded in 1956, the METU is a top-tier public-sector technical university located in Ankara, Turkey. METU is renown for its strong emphasis on research-based education in engineering and natural sciences. The university offers about 40 undergraduate programs within 5 faculties as well as 97 graduate and 62 doctorate programs within 5 graduate schools.

MIT Technology Review is a prestigious publication published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It was founded in 1899 and is known for being the leading voice on technology.
