WHAT IS CIE?

Information Technology University seeks to support the economic and technical landscape of Pakistan. For this very purpose, it has established the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, an in-house business incubator that would solve real world problems with innovative and technologically advanced solutions. The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship would not only facilitate young engineers and budding entrepreneurs but would also expand the frontiers of knowledge through research-based approach to learning.

WHAT MAKES "CIE" DIFFERENT?

Ever since its inception in 2012, ITU has promoted innovation in the areas of science, technology and engineering through its state of the art labs and research centers. These labs and research centers have been designed to facilitate current students in their studies. The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is one such center that would not only facilitate young engineers and budding entrepreneurs but would also inculcate a culture of research and entrepreneurship inside them.

ITU is modelled across the top research and tech universities of the world therefore graduates and final year students get the opportunity to polish and reshape their final year projects (FYP) into proper working products and companies. This approach towards entrepreneurship gives students a way to lower their cost of production and overall running expenses.

Moreover, the in house startups would get access to mentorship sessions and opportunities to attend business competitions, exchange programs all over the globe financially and administratively backed by ITU.
