Student Testimonials

I am Canadian National and currently I am studying in 4th semester of Electrical and Computer Engineering. So far I've enjoyed my time at COMSATS, and have had a great experience with my fellow students and teachers. Electrical Engineering is considered as a tough degree, however our professors are supportive and made it easy to take transition from secondary studies to the University. Additionally, our professors have allowed us to contact them outside of class hours for extra support and guidance. Further, they have given us the proper feedback needed to improve in the future. I've liked our labs environment include all the friendly components that we under supervision of instructors. It provides real time project planning and conversion of simulations into useful hardware. We are also encouraged to think about global environment and lifelong learning.

As a student of COMSATS University Islamabad, I feel so much delighted for the fact that my time pursuing a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering has been an extremely enlightening and life-changing journey for me. One main factor, which highly contributed to my professional development, has been the faculty's absolute devotion to excellence and innovation, which allowed me to acquire a rather strong fundamental knowledge as well as some practical skills. What I've learnt from the hands-on training, is the capacity to translate classroom teaching to real life application. I'm well prepared to compete in a changing technological environment. Furthermore, the interactive and cooperative atmosphere at COMSATS has cultivated the community spirit among the students, and this seems to make us interdependent to learn from each other. After all, at COMSATS University Islamabad, my professional trajectory in the discipline of Electrical and Computer Engineering has been furnished with the competencies, information and strength of will to pursue my aspirations I am incredibly grateful for the possibilities and attributes that have molded me to the industrious professional I am today.

My name is Muhammad Bilal Ahsan s/o Muhammad Ahsan Ashraf. I am 22 years old and a resident of Rawalpindi. I have completed 7 semesters at Comsats University Islamabad; thus, I am soon closing out my 4 years of tenure for a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering.

It has been satisfying to study at COMSATS because I could perceive it since the onset of my study experience. Although the challenges of studying electrical were hard, the support of our professors has been undoubtedly invaluable. With the help of their experienced teachers, we alleviated our concern for the college environment by attending our classes and talking to our teachers in our free time, to gain more tips and feedback to improve ourselves.

Over my study period, I gained capability in electrical circuit analysis, digital systems, automation, power systems, and control system as well. The thing that I gained during the course I've been doing that is a collection of a lot of skills, digital systems, power systems and the automation of plants I have prepared myself in how to deal with various areas of electrical engineering. Through the task of designing, testing, and debugging electrical circuits, to which I add software skills such as Verilog, Proteus, MATLAB, AutoCAD, and Simulink, I have gathered the instruments needed to face daily living engineering tasks. Able to pick up new things quickly and doing well on my own and working in a team, I look forward to bringing some substantial contribution to creative projects and working along with people who think the same way about finding innovatory ideas.
