COMSATS University Islamabad (CUI) is a public university in Pakistan. This young university is made up of several campuses, with the main one located in Islamabad. CUI is directly supervised by the Commission on Science and Technology for Sustainable Development in the South (COMSATS), an intergovernmental organization that works to sustain socio-economic growth among developing countries.

CUI was initially established by COMSATS in 1998 as the COMSATS Institute of Information Technology. The Federal Government gave its first charter in August 2000. As a public degree-awarding institution, it was transformed from being an institute of information technology to a full-fledged university in April 2018. Consequently, it adopted the name COMSATS University Islamabad in accordance with an Act of Parliament.

CUI strives to become, and remain, one of the country’s top higher education institutions. It also aims to achieve prominence as a research university. Furthermore, the university hopes to be included in the top 100 universities in today’s developing world, and among the top 500 globally.

As a multi-campus university, CUI currently has seven campuses, with another seven being planned for future development. To keep up with the times, it also runs a virtual campus where students, applicants, and other stakeholders can access relevant information and asynchronous courses.

The university is composed of six faculties: (1) Information Sciences and Technology, (2) Engineering, (3) Business Administration, (4) Science, (5) Architecture and Design, (6) and Research, Innovation and Commercialization. These faculties offer over 100 academic programs across 22 academic departments.

With undergraduate and graduate programs in a comprehensive range of subjects and disciplines, CUI runs eight research centers to further its goal to become a leading research institution. It also owns over 1,170,000 library books. Moreover, COMSATS University Islamabad employs more than 2,600 teachers and professors. More than 1,100 of whom are academic managers and Ph.D. professors.

CUI accepts both Pakistani and international students. As of Spring 2020, the student population has reached a total of 36,036. Over 500 of them are from 24 countries. Although a relatively young university, CUI has already produced almost 70,000 graduates, including about 400 PhDs.

Following through with its goal to maintain an international stature, CUI has established strong international links with other institutions in several countries, including the United States, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, South Korea, Russia, France, Turkey, and China, among others. These partnerships allow CUI to get involved in the sharing of knowledge and expertise on an international scale.
