Habib University is a liberal arts and sciences university that offers an interdisciplinary education drawing from the fields of science, engineering, arts, humanities, and the social sciences. Committed to providing the highest standards of excellence in tertiary education and envisioned as a node for intellectual activity in the region, Habib University hopes to foster a new generation of scholars who can positively impact society.
A first-of-its-kind university in Pakistan, Habib University offers programs of study in an intensely collaborative learning environment. With a highly-qualified Ph.D. faculty and a targeted student/faculty ratio of 12:1, the University helps students pursue unique paths that are in line with their individual passions and interests.
Habib University is currently collaborating with the Texas A&M University at Qatar and the Carnegie-Mellon University to equip students with knowledge and skills that will help them address the emerging challenges of the twenty-first century.
Located in the southern port city of Karachi, about two kilometers from Jinnah International Airport, the University is uniquely positioned to draw from the vast resources of this diverse and dynamic country.
Habib University has been constructed in two phases. Spread over 6.3 acres of land, the City Campus has all the features of a modern state-of-the-art university. In the second phase, Habib University will expand to a larger residential campus on the outskirts of Karachi.
Habib University provides a liberal arts education rooted in the philosophy of Yohsin.
Yohsin encompasses five major paradigms: striving for Excellence; appreciating Aesthetics (beauty); nurturing Passion; Respecting Others, and Serving the communities in which we reside.
A multidimensional concept, Yohsin incorporates a worldview where the worth of a person is measured not just in terms of the depth of their technical knowledge or skills, but by their interaction with nature and society at large. This entails living responsibly and aiming to positively impact the community and the world.
Habib University is an initiative by the Habib University Foundation, which is supported by the House of Habib.
