Welcome to Vehari
Vehari is located on the southern alternate route of
both railway and road between Multan and Lahore,
the capital of the Punjab province of Pakistan.

Location and Composition
The summer in Vehari is very hot, but the weather
becomes pleasant between October and February.
Light rainfall leaves the land generally arid and
dusty. The country's agricultural products are
fantastic and include mangoes in the summer and
guava and citrus fruit in the winter. Vehari is the
best cotton growing area in the entire Pakistan.
There is a great deal of prosperity due to cotton
based industry and very fertile agriculture land.

COMSATS is listed among the grid computing sites for ALICE Experiment. This laboratory provides a unique facility of its kind at COMSATS whereby the students of Computer Science learn the embedded software development and can be productively employed at embedded systems industry. Huge array of detectors observe and record the results of these collisions. The experiments done over the Intel based systems will be deployed to the embedded kits. the European Organization for Nuclear Research.unit and also the DSP processor based kits. be deployed to work. By studying what happens when these particles collide. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before they are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Founded in 1954. Therefore students learn the embedded development environment through student projects. CERN Collaboration CERN.

All of these kits run a variant of Linux as the core embedded kernel. The embedded system industry finds very difficult to get fresh graduates who can. It was one of Europe’s first joint ventures and now has 20 Member States. This is due to the fact that neither Computer Engineers nor Computer Scientists are trained for the embedded software development. the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are being used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles. the CERN Laboratory sits astride the Franco–Swiss border near Geneva. The instruments used at CERN are particle accelerators and detectors. of which CIIT setup is a part.

Research Group, under the umbrella of Software Engineering. We are offering
this new specialization with name of Semantic Web and Service Engineering, so
that our students and faculty members can share their knowledge in the
upcoming world of Service Engineering.

The semantic Web and Service Engineering
The Semantic Web is not a separate Web but an extension to the current World
Wide Web (WWW). The Semantic Web aims at finding the information on the
basis of contents of Web resources rather than performing only the key word
based searching. To make the Web documents equally understandable both for
human and computers is the vision of the Semantic Web. Web Service is
platform and language independent technology to develop business
applications as business services. Combining the idea of the Semantic Web and
Web Services will help in dynamic integration of business services as newly
emerging technology known as Semantic Web Services. This specialization will
briefly cover the topics in the area of the Semantic Web and Semantic Web
Services.

Faculty
Computer science is an academic discipline that is distinct from other pure and
applied sciences, engineering and mathematics.
You will be taught by computer scientists who are at forefront of knowledge.
This is reflected in the Department’s high rating for research. Teaching is of a
high standard achieving a rating of ‘excellent’. You will find the atmosphere in
the Department friendly and informal and help is readily available. Teaching is
conducted by lectures, tutorials and laboratory/ practical exercises.
Involvement in research by students is encouraged.
