It’s funny how your perceptions can be so off, like when you’re searching for a place to fall in and you realize you’ve been there the whole time, or how just an evening stroll down towards the glorious sunset can take all your worries away, the ones that shouldn’t be there in the first place, and why the hell not? . . Maybe the best course of action if you’re ever lost in the wilderness is to drop all your concerns, hold someone’s hand, and walk down towards the dying light. 📸@saad_zubairy #aethetics #aethetic #photography #lightroom #pics #mobilephotography #ibakarachi #iba #lifeatibakarachi #karachi #ibacamp #ibacampus #university #motivation #beautifullines #poetry #dawnphotography #snapseed #snapseededit

The degree solely focuses on empowering students who do not come from a non-computer science background. The 2 years program that has been designed by the Faculty of Computer Sciences (FCS) has facilitated the students by adding foundation level courses that will help them reach the level of understanding of that of a student from a computer science background.

“The advancement in artificial intelligence, communications, and robotics across the globe has led to the high demand of data scientists. Although Pakistan lies at the onset of this development, an increasing need is being felt in the software industry and service sectors like financial institutions, telecommunication organizations, healthcare providers, and multi-nationals to produce a trained workforce,” says the Executive Director, IBA, Dr. S Akbar Zaidi.

To all those who have chosen hope over fears, to all those who have secretly hidden their tears, to all those who are constantly waiting for their wishful years, to all those who are tired enough to fight life’s spheres, and to all those who are moving and dazzling on an unknown way for getting a news which might never reach on their ears. May you rest in peace before you die, may your sufferings cease before you cry, may your pains decrease before you’re high!
