About Habib University

Habib University is a liberal arts & sciences university, offering interdisciplinary education in science, engineering, arts, humanities and social sciences.  Committed to providing the highest standards of excellence in higher education and envisioned to be an intellectual nexus for the region, Habib University will develop the next generation of scholars who will positively impact society.

A first-of-its-kind initiative in Pakistan, Habib University will offer high quality programs of study in a collaborative learning environment. With highly qualified Ph.D. faculty and a targeted student/faculty ratio of 12:1, the University will ensure that our students pursue unique paths inspired by individual passion and enthusiasm.

Located in Karachi, about two kilometers from Quaid-e-Azam International Airport, Habib University will be uniquely positioned to draw from the vast resources of this diverse and dynamic city and equip students with the knowledge and skills required to address emerging challenges of the twenty-first century and beyond.

Habib University is collaborating with Texas A&M University at Qatar and other international universities. Connected to these leading North American institutions and governed by an experienced board, Habib University will build a culture of leadership, life-long learning and community engagement, and will significantly contribute to Pakistan and the international community.

Habib University is being constructed in two phases. In the first phase, an urban commuter campus will be established. Spread over 7 acres of land, this City campus will have all the features of a modern state-of-the-art university. In the second phase, Habib University will expand to a larger residential campus in the outskirts of Karachi.

Habib University is being established by Habib University Foundation with the support of the well-known House of Habib. It is on course to commence operations in the fall of 2014.
