Faculty of Physical Sciences
The Institute of Information Technology (IIT) is the largest and pioneering teaching and research department of Kohat University of Science and Technology (KUST). Its foundation was laid down with the establishment of KUST in 2001. Geographically, IIT is located at the heart of Kohat Indus highway junction which provides easy access to Islamabad, provincial capital Peshawar, FATA, Southern KPK and neighboring districts of Punjab. The highly professional academic standards coupled with our strategic location enable us to attract large and demographically diverse range of faculty members, researchers and students from all areas of Pakistan in general and the aforementioned areas, in particular.
The IIT offers various degree programs, certification programs, trainings and services to the academia as well as the general society. We offer the recent and updated curricula both at graduate (PhD and MS) and undergraduate degree programs (BSCS and MCS). Special focus is put on making all degree programs at par with reputed universities of the world under the guidelines provided by the Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan. In addition to academic courses, the IIT KUST regularly organizes seminars, workshops and conferences.
The existing faculty members are qualified from reputed foreign and domestic universities having research specializations in Artificial Intelligence, Security and Network Technologies, Data Science, Natural Language Processing, IT Management, Information Retrieval, Text and Data Mining, Mobile Technologies, Distributed Systems and Theoretical Computer Science. Some of our faculty members are pursuing PhD from well-reputed universities of the technologically advanced countries. The IIT is equipped with state of the art facilities providing high bandwidth Internet connectivity (both wired and wireless). Other facilities include lecture rooms, computing labs, final year projects lab, research and development cell, web development cell, mobile apps development cell and CCNA lab, all having multimedia projectors, OHP and LED Screens etc. Furnishing of our own seminar hall and smart classroom projects have been approved already and these facilities will be soon available in the IIT KUST.View items
Department of Chemistry was established in October, 2004 soon after the onset of KUST in 2002, with only forty students and two faculty members. It was shifted to its current location of Academic Block Uphill Building in 2007 and occupied the ground floor of the building. Now, it is one of largest postgraduate department with more than three hundred students and eighteen highly qualified faculty members. Most of the faculty members are having Doctorate and Post Doctorate qualifications from world ranking institutions of good repute.
Department of Chemistry coordinates and provides facilities for exchange of knowledge and basic and applied research in different fields of science in general and of chemistry in particular. The department has established links to national and international institutions for mutual collaboration to produce quality research and trainings.View items
Welcome to the Institute of Numerical Sciences (INS) at Kohat University of Science and Technology (KUST). The INS is a full teaching and research institute at KUST formerly known as the department of Mathematics which was one of the oldest departments of the KUST established in 2004. The INS occupy the 1st and 2nd floors of the Academic block in the northeast corner of the KUST. The INS offers a BS degree in Mathematics, Statistics and M.Sc. degree in Mathematics; an M.S/M.Phil. degree in Mathematics; and a PhD degree in Mathematics. The INS has more than three hundred students and nineteen qualified faculty members. Most of the faculty members are having Doctorate degree. The INS also extends its teaching support to other departments/institutions of KUST in their bachelor and master degree programs. Research faculty members in INS are primarily in Applied Mathematics and Applied Statistics. Some of the research specialties are in Optimization theory, Theory of Relativity, Fuzzy Statistics, Numerical Analysis, Functional Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Statistical Inference, Survival Analysis and Mathematical Biology.View items
