History & Progress

CECOS Educational Institutions have been sources of continuous support to more than twelve 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, Engr. Muhammad Tanveer Javed established in Peshawar Saddar a small private sector institution – CECOS Data Institute with only five computers and a very few students. CDI than 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. Later this institute got affiliated to Peshawar University becoming the premier college to offer post graduate courses in computer science and University of London for certain computer courses. Today, AlhamdoLillah, it has on its role over one thousand students.

Gradually but steadily, realising 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 and programs of BSIT, MSIT, BCS, MCS, BBA and MBA were started. CECOS Data College was also authorised to be “Action Learning Center of Software Development” by UGC and Ministry of Communication to conduct Post-Graduate-Diploma in Software Development. During the same time, the Prestigious Institute of Cost & Management Accountants of Pakistan (ICMAP) declared us as their Peshawar Center. 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 got affiliated to NWFP University of Engineering and Technology.

Besides these in-land institutions, CECOS also moved to open the CECOS London College of Information Technology and Management in 1998, registered under UK rules, to facilitate credit transfer of our students to American and European Universities and to market software developed by us and conduct split degree programs. CECOS-London College is fully accredited and affiliated to world prestigious bodies like City & Guilds London, Institute of Management for Information Systems UK, London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, ACCA (UK) and British Computer Society to conduct diploma, advanced diploma and graduate diploma in IT, MIS and Business studies. These diplomas are equivalent to first year, second year and third year degree programs of most of the UK Universities with full credit transfer. All the courses of CECOS London college are fully accredited by British Accreditation Council (BAC, UK). Another landmark was achieved in the year 2001 when CECOS IT Park Project was opened with the aim to provide live facility to the students for the development of software and to capture the huge International software market.

Finally, the dawn of a new era began when Government of KPK after realising the dedicated and zealous efforts of CECOS Educational Institutions in imparting quality & professional education, granted charter for University under the name & style of CECOS University of Information Technology & Emerging Sciences. This charter was promulgated vide Ordinance No. XXI of 2001. The University is recognized by Higher Education Commission (formerly known as University Grants Commission – UGC), Govt. of Pakistan. CECOS University has also received accreditation from International Universities Accrediting Association, USA.
