Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science & Technology
Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science and Technology (FUUAST) has, over the years emerged as in impressive center of highest learning with extremely learned faculty. FUUAST enjoys the unique distinction of being the first ever university in Pakistan, which ultimately aims at using Urdu as the main language of instruction and teaching. The University was established on 13th November 2002 under ordinance No CXIX2002 promulgated by the President of Pakistan, as per provision of this ordinance the university has its principal seat at Islamabad. The University started functioning in November 2002 by taking over two federal government colleges, namely Federal Urdu Science College and Federal Urdu Arts College, in Karachi, that were established in 1949 by Baba-e-Urdu Dr. Abdul Haq whose mission was only to promote Urdu as teaching and also as national language. The principal seat of the University at Islamabad commenced its teaching programs in November 2003. It is heartening to note that the FUUAST has come a long way, since its modest beginning in 2002 from a few subjects to full fledged faculties including those of Basic and Applied Sciences along with Engineering, Business Management, Economics and Humanities.
