It provides the most congenial environment for research in different fields of engineering, Technology and computing. Hamdard Faculty of Engineering Sciences & Technology (FEST) Islamabad was established in 2000, a body for imparting quality education and training is among one of the pioneers to introduce Information Technology education in Pakistan.

FEST initially offered programs in Computer Science, Information Technology and Computer System Engineering, and our graduates have earned a high ranking while competing for jobs in public as well as private sector organizations. Later on, the institute introduced engineering programs in Telecommunications and Electronics in 2003. The institution proved its credibility by getting accreditation from Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) and National Computing Education Accreditation Council (NCEAC). Later on FEST changed its scope by merging both Telecommunication and Electronics engineering in to Electrical Engineering.  14 batches of Electrical Engineering and 8 batches of Computer Sciences have been graduated from FEST. The institute has so far produced hundreds of quality engineers and computer scientists who are serving at various positions within and outside Pakistan.  To cope with the rapid changes in the field of technology and computer science, FEST started two new undergraduate programs in industrial engineering technology and computer arts. To meet the requirements of higher education, FEST ha also started graduate program in electrical engineering. FEST always show zero tolerance on the education standards of HEC, PEC, NCEAC and NTC.
