Education in the twenty-frst century demands a balance between continuity and change. The technological leaps and the consequences thereof have overtaken the old educational paradigms and new concepts have emerged in the world of learning. The Punjab Group of Colleges (PGC) was among the frst to realize this transition and its challenges. The PGC, therefore, submitted a petition to the Government of the Punjab, in August 1996, to allow to establish a university in the province. A No Objection Certifcate was issued in October 1999. The charter to establish the University of Central Punjab (UCP) was awarded in April 2002. Thus this University clinched the distinction of becoming the frst private sector university in the Punjab which acquired the status of a degree awarding institution.
When the University started its operations in October 1999, it offered courses in Management Studies, Information Technology, Commerce and Law through its principal constituents i.e. Punjab College of Business Administration (PCBA), Punjab Institute of Computer Sciences (PICS), Punjab College of Commerce (PCC), Punjab Law College (PLC) and Punjab College of Information Technology (PCIT), all situated in Lahore.
These Colleges were restructured as Faculties of the University and became:
Faculty of Management Studies
1. UCP Business School
2. School of Accounting and Finance
Faculty of Information Technology
Faculty of Engineering
Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences
Faculty of Pharmacy
School of Media & Communication Studies
Faculty of Life Sciences
UCP offers everything students need to develop and succeed in their academic and professional lives. To make the learning experience enjoyable and fulflling, students are provided with cutting edge facilities and infrastructure. Multiple labs are provided with latest and highly sophisticated equipment. Airconditioned.
