COMPPEC has traditionally been an Electrical & Computer
Engineering and Computer Sciences projects exhibition and
competition. This year the NUST College of Electrical &
Mechanical Engineering (EME) is holding 10th of its series. Last
year around 135 projects where exhibited from 40 different
universities and colleges across Pakistan. This annual ICT
festival is growing every year attracting more universities and
students with relevant projects.
This year, the competition and exhibition is scheduled for 24th

R&D Fund has collaborated with the EME college to add more
objectivity to the competition. Project teams will have the
opportunity to interact with the Fundís personnel and seek
guidance on the research grant application process.
With this relevance in perspective the event is tagged as
ICT-COMPPEC, a new name that sounds more relevant to its new
vision and objective. Along with evaluating projects in five
different categories, the event also adds the following:
1. The projects will also be evaluated for their potential for
