Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science and Technology (FUUAST) has, over the years emerged as in impressive center of highest learning with extremely learned faculty. FUUAST enjoys the unique distinction of being the first ever university in Pakistan, which ultimately aims at using Urdu as the main language of instruction and teaching. The University was established on 13th November 2002 under ordinance No CXIX2002 promulgated by the President of Pakistan, as per provision of this ordinance the university has its principal seat at Islamabad. The University started functioning in November 2002 by taking over two federal government colleges, namely Federal Urdu Science College and Federal Urdu Arts College, in Karachi, that were established in 1949 by Baba-e-Urdu Dr. Abdul Haq whose mission was only to promote Urdu as teaching and also as national language. The principal seat of the University at Islamabad commenced its teaching programs in November 2003. It is heartening to note that the FUUAST has come a long way, since its modest beginning in 2002 from a few subjects to full fledged faculties including those of Basic and Applied Sciences along with Engineering, Business Management, Economics and Humanities.
Every university has a culture that develops with time as the institution ages and matures. In all diversity, however, there is one common ground, to aim for academic excellence. With this as a driving force, and with the availability of resources, any institution can achieve the goal of providing the best education, and producing the best engineers, scientists, artists, scholars and above all citizens. Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science & Technology is highly regarded for its strong academic departments, including Economics, Computer Science, Business Administration, Urdu and upcoming Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics. With the rapidly transforming innovative approach to teaching, research and learning, we are slowly but surely establishing a good reputation among employers, FUUAST stands amongst the top 10 leading research universities, in selected areas. Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science & Technology has two campuses in Karachi, and one campus in Islamabad. There are more than 12,000 students in Islamabad and Karachi campuses and 450 faculty members in Islamabad and Karachi campuses.
Transition to university is an exciting step in your lives. It will be challenging to move from the system of education at your schools, to a bigger setup in terms of faculty, resources and diversity of students, as people with different cities and backgrounds come and study. Many of you will be living away from home for the first time. it is an exciting environment , but it might take some time become accustomed to. It is very important that you take the opportunity to participate fully in university activities, not only in lecture and tutorials, but also broader aspects’ of university life, as these will be most rewarding.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science & Technology and invite you to embark on a life time partnership with your university.
