BS (Economics)

How did the pandemic rattle developed and under-developed economies? Was policy response to Covid-driven economic crisis right? If yes, then what caused the inequalities to rise record high? How can economic policies help tackle the gender pay gap and deal with the challenges of the climate crisis while maintaining a competitive edge?

As a student of BS Economics, you shall learn how to provide solutions to a wide range of real-world issues like those mentioned above. It is a modern 8-semester course designed to instill a scientific and open-minded approach in students to tackle real-world issues using qualitative methods, field analysis, and an approach where hypotheses are tested against data.

Likewise, you will learn how to apply economics’ analytical method to real-life and a broad range of problems to answer policy questions and resolve social issues of high priority. The focus will also be on developing interpersonal skills – especially communication skills – to foster your strength in constructing complex arguments and translating the same effectively. This all-around professional and personal development will make you a sought-after graduate in the job market.

Computer Systems Engineering is a discipline concerned with the design, analysis and application of computers. This discipline combines both Computer Science and Electronic Engineering and covers all aspects of computer hardware, software and their integration. Computer systems engineers focus on innovation; making computing systems faster and powerful; and solving problems. Computer engineers combine hardware and software to design and implement integrated computer systems for applications in areas such as robotics, artificial intelligence, aerospace and avionics, healthcare, Internet of Things and cloud computing. In today’s world, expertise of both hardware and software need to be combined to develop high-tech solutions in all fields of life. B.E (Computer System Engineering) program is accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) and aligned with Washington Accord.
