Sir Syed Center for Advanced Studies in Engineering (SS‐CASE‐IT) Institute of Technology (SS‐CASE‐IT) became
federally chartered degree awarding institute in year 2018.Providing quality higher education is not some thing
new to SS‐CASE‐IT.Its history dates back to year 1998.SS‐CASE‐IT started its journey as an affiliated institute
(CASE) with University of engineering and technology Taxila (UET Taxila).
Center for Advanced Studies in Engineering (CASE), had been a project of not‐for‐profit Engineering Education
Trust (EET). It was in the January of 2001 when we formally talked about establishing CASE; an institution of
higher technical learning in Pakistan. We debated on its feasibility and gauged our commitment to this national
cause and identified the dissemination of advanced knowledge in engineering and management to our
professional engineers and scientists as the need of the hour.
In 1998, a research and development organization named Communications Enabling Technologies (CET) Pakistan
was established in Rawalpindi. Soon, CET headed by Dr. Shoab Ahmed Khan (Tamgha‐e‐Imtiaz) attracted some
of the best professionals in Pakistan. Dr. Farrukh Kamran (Tamgha‐e‐Imtiaz), Dr. Saeed Ur Rahman, and Dr. Sohail
Naqvi (Former Executive Director, HEC) joined CET in its early days and played a key role in establishing CASE.
Later, this group was joined by more outstanding professionals like Dr. Syed Ismail Shah (Ex‐Chairman Pakistan
Telecom Authority), Dr. Aamer Iqbal Bhatti, Dr. Amir Qayyum, Dr. Imtiaz A. Taj, Dr. Sheikh Muhammad Farhan,
Saleem Ahmed Khan, Dr. Mohsin Rahmatullah, Hammad Ahmed Khan, Dr. Zaheer Ahmed and Durdana Habib.
Engineering Education Trust (EET) was established in May 2001.
We take pride in starting CASE with graduate education and new research culture to bring Pakistan on the road
to prosperity through a knowledge‐based economy by developing human resource in higher technical education.
UET Taxila granted affiliation of graduate program in Computer Engineering with 60 students. This led to the
establishment of CASE on September 11, 2001 at Software Technology Park Islamabad. CASE was inaugurated
by then the Federal Minister of Science and Technology Prof. Dr. Atta‐ur‐Rehman.
The institute had the support of an excellent teaching faculty of 10 PhDs and 8 MScs at that time. Later the new
programs were established in following order:
CASE has not only excelled in education but also on the forefront of research activities. We developed product
focused research needs of our society with our partner CARE PVT Ltd providing industrial insights. CASE acquired
research funding from CISCO Systems, PTCL and Ignite ICT R&D Fund, Ministry of IT, Government of Pakistan in
last 12 years worth of Rs 130 million.
Sir Syed CASE Institute of Technology (SS‐CASE‐IT): A Degree Awarding Federally Chartered
By the Grace of All Mighty Allah, Engineering Education Trust (EET) obtained the Federal charter for Sir Syed
CASE Institute of Technology (SS‐CASE‐IT) on May 24, 2018 after tireless struggles of trustees of EET and
commendable efforts of all present and past staff and faculty members of CASE.
Brig (R) Iqbal Shafi, Begum Majida Shafi, Dr Tahir Hussain, Dr Fatima Farhee Rehman, and many old
Aligarians had a vision to transform CASE into Sir Syed CASE Institute of Technology to pass the
message of our great leaders of Tehreek e Pakistan (Quaid e Azam, Allama Mohammad Iqbal,Sir Syed
Ahmed Khan) to our youth and continue the mission of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan by spreading
education in science and technology with a blend of Islamic teachings. Today, this institute is ready
to achieve these goals.
CASE, therefore, has achieved a major milestone to enter into new era thus becoming a degree
awarding multidisciplinary institute in Islamabad to meet the raising demand of world class university
education in engineering, basic sciences and humanities on its campuses, in order to generate highly
skilled and innovative young persons. SS‐CASE‐IT has succeeded CASE and all its programs, human
resource and infrastructure are transferred in SS‐CASE‐IT.
