Gad and Birgit Rausing Library is a multi-disciplinary library serving the faculty, students, researchers, and staff of the university. It is providing qualityservices to its' patrons.
The Department of Computer Science at LUMS was founded in 1994, as an undergraduate programme with just two faculty members. Today, the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering programmes combined have nineteen faculty members, with doctorates from some of the best universities in the world. They conduct research in fundamental and applied areas of computer science and computer engineering, including computer architecture, computer vision, data mining, multimedia systems, network and wireless communications, software engineering and theory of computation. In 2008 the department became part of the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE).
A team of students from the Electrical Engineering (EE) and Computer Science (CS) departments of Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE) has qualified for the UAV Challenge Medical Express 2018 held in Australia. Team SBASSE is among the top 13 qualifying teams from across the world who participated in the competition. This is the first time that a team from Pakistan has qualified for this Competition, and is competing against notable teams from Australia, Poland, Thailand, Netherlands, Canada, India, and China.
