About us


SOFTEC is a magnificent annual event organized at FAST-NU Lahore Campus, with the primary aim of promoting the advancement of Information Technology and the propagation of its benefits amongst all. For the past nineteen years this I.T. extravaganza has enriched the awareness amongst students and professionals alike, providing a forum for the exchange of ideas, an environment for the showcase of exceptional professional skill and a platform for innovation.

The event has become an annual feature at FAST-NU and each year SOFTEC grows bigger and attracts a larger number of participants. The annual SOFTEC event is now the most anticipated, the most promoted and the most participated-in event held in the FAST-NU. It has deeply entwined its roots in the culture of the university and has become a highly esteemed tradition.

Having established SOFTEC regionally as an I.T. event of exceptional standing, appealing to people of all age-groups and breaking a barrier of 1,000 participants in any event organized by the students of Pakistan, SOFTEC15 will attempt to expand its activities to focus on aspects of I.T. This is just another step towards involving people of varied interests in this edifying event.

ENGINEERING PROJECT COMPETITION

For too long the hardware engineering aspects of I.T. work in Pakistan had been merely an afterthought in professional competitions. With the intentions of changing this attitude, the Engineering Project Competition, a highly anticipated event was launched for the first time during SOFTEC 2007. The exceedingly ambitious hardware-based projects submitted to the software competition in recent years, as well as our institute’s steps into the hardware engineering education arena prompted us to initiate this competition exclusively for engineering projects of undergraduate students. The evaluation of entries will follow the same pattern as that of the software competition, with participants’ entries undergoing three rounds of analysis by a panel of expert judges.

ELIGIBILITY

In order for a person to participate in this category, he/she must be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program or has completed his/her Under-Graduate studies on or after January 1, 2015. If a project entry is being made by a group, each member of that group must fulfil the eligibility criteria for the category in question. In each separate category, the participants’ engineering projects will be filtered through three rigorous rounds of analysis by the judges. Apart from the competition itself, the participants also get a chance to display their projects for the general public throughout the event.
