Vice Chancellor's Message

Being the first Vice-Chancellor of Sindh Institute of Management & Technology Chartered by Government of Sindh as a Degree Awarding Institute and Recognized by Higher Education Commission (HEC), Islamabad, it is a matter of pleasure and pride that the SIMT has successfully entered into its starting age. I would fully utilize all my energies, experience and potentials to make this Institute a great seat of learning and would continue the efforts to bring this Institute to national and international fame.

 My focus would be on academic excellence and would try that the SIMT may prove its distinction imparting quality education, learning, research and in other academic activities. The SIMT currently offers disciplines including Business Administration, Computer Science, Information Technology, Software Engineering, Technologies, engineering, Education, Media Sciences and Fashion Design programs. These fields will not only be confined to the undergraduate level but also leading to the graduate and postgraduate programs of MS/MPhil and PhD. We would not halt here and would try to expand the sphere of academic activities by launching more new disciplines in emerging and applied sciences.

With the help and support of the dedicated & highly qualified faculty, talented students & competent staff, SIMT is striving hard for achieving many milestones in near future. I am confident that with the commitment of my colleagues and prayers of our well-wishers, SIMT will become paragon of excellence by becoming one of the top Institutes of the world and the top model Institutes of Pakistan.

Best Wishes & Compliments
