CECOS University of Information Technology and Emerging Sciences, Peshawar

CECOS Educational Institutions have been source of continuous support to more than seventeen thousand students for developing their careers, especially in Business Management, Computer Sciences and Information Technology since 1986.

The story of genesis of this University and its evolution through various stages, started in the year 1986 when Engr. Muhammad Tanveer Javed established at Peshawar a small private sector institution, CECOS Data Institute, with only five computers and a very few students. CDI then designed a One Year diploma course in Computer Science and got it approved from Board of Technical Education (B.T.E) for implementation in NWFP (now KPK). Later this institute got affiliated to Peshawar University becoming the premier college to offer postgraduate courses in Computer Science and University of London for certain Computer courses. Today, AlhamdoLillah, it has on its role over three thousand students.

Gradually but steadily, realizing the need to integrate computers and business education, CECOS moved forward; established a private sector Commerce College in 1987, which was rather the first Private Sector Commerce College in Peshawar, affiliated to Peshawar University for B.Com-I and II and B.T.E for D.Com / DBA courses. Later, in 1994 our campus extended to Hayatabad, as CECOS Data College was established and programs of BSIT, MIT, BCS, MCS, BBA and MBA were started. CECOS Data College was also authorized to be “Action Learning Centre of Software Development” by UGC (now HEC) and Ministry of Communication to conduct Postgraduate Diploma in Software Development. During the same time, the prestigious Institute of Cost & Management Accountants of Pakistan (ICMAP) declared us as their Peshawar Centre. It is the honor of CECOS that the Post-Master professional IT oriented courses in Management Accountancy commenced, for the first time at CECOS, Peshawar. Previously the ICMAP enrolled students had to go to Islamabad, Lahore or Karachi for these professional courses. The year 1996 saw the opening of the College of Engineering and Information Technology to run Communication and Civil Engineering programs. Later, the College also got affiliation with NWFP (now KPK) University of Engineering and Technology for B.Sc Civil and Electrical Engineering.
