Dr. A. Q Khan Institute of Computer Sciences and Information Technology (KICSIT), Kahuta was inaugurated in November 2000 by Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan himself, the founder and then Chairman of KRL. KICSIT aims to offer quality education at an affordable cost. Currently, it is offering two four-year degree programs as Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCE) and Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS). BSCE is approved by PEC (Pakistan Engineering Council) and BSCS is registered with NCEAC (National Computing Education Accreditation Council) with final approval expected soon. Both of these programs are being offered in affiliation with UET Taxila, which awards degrees to our students. KICSIT is ideally located in an exclusively peaceful and secure environment. On one hand, it is free from the congestion of the present-day cities and, on the other hand, it is accessible from the twin cities of Rawalpindi- Islamabad at an easy drive of about an hour. KICSIT is housed in its own purposefully-built air-conditioned campus.
It has furnished and equipped laboratories, libraries and class rooms. Broad-band internet connectivity is available at all computers of the Institute. KICSIT provides transport to its students and faculty traveling from twin cities and Kahuta area at a subsidized rate. The Institute does have an an elite faculty with foreign qualified PhDs as well as the Master degree-holders having decades of practical industrial experience, many of them being scientists and engineers of KRL. In view of its increasing students strength and scope, the New Campus of KICSIT is under construction in the midst of lush green and scenic hills of Kahuta. This is on main Rawalpindi-Kahuta Road and covers an area of above 100 Kanals. Here, Academic and Administration blocks are already operational with our BSCE and part of BSCS programs, while a large new block is under construction.
Though KICSIT is a small-size institute, yet it has a shining record in terms of students and alumni. A large number of alumni have joined Strategic Organizations, Armed Forces and Multinational Companies. In higher education, many studied and got degrees from US, UK and other Foreign Universities. Also, KICSIT students have
been competing well in the inter-university competitions and have won many awards recently. Thus, overall it is expected that our students find their stay at KICSIT a memorable and fruitful time period of
