City University of Science & Information Technology, (CUSIT) Peshawar is one of the first private-sector universities, chartered by the government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, recognized by the Higher Education Commission (HEC), Accredited by the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC). The University is an extension of Peshawar Model Educational Institutes (PMEI) founded in 1979 with an aim to impart quality education at an affordable cost.
Initially, a primary school was established by Muhammad ZahoorSethi (Founder), comprising just one moderate campus with 300 students. But, in due course of time, the continuous efforts of our highly qualified faculty and dedicated management paid off and resulted in the establishment of nine separate school campuses, three degree college campuses for boys and two degree college campuses for girls, with a combined strength of over 23,000 students.
Recognizing the extraordinary reputation of PMEI in providing quality education from primary to bachelor level, the government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa granted the charter of City University of Science & Information Technology, Peshawar on 30th August, 2001.
