About Us

About USA

University of South Asia is driven by a shared resolve: to make this world in general and Pakistan in particular a better place through education, research, and innovation. We are exciting and eccentric, superlative but not discriminative, creative and imaginative, contemporary and competitive, memorable but not unnoticeable, obsessed with impact, concerned about outreach, and convivial to talented people regardless of their background, origin, color, race, beliefs, and nationality.

When Computer Studies were alien to educational landscape in Pakistan, National College of Computer Sciences (NCCS) was founded by Mr. Mahmood Sadiq in 1987 with an aim to equip Pakistani youth with modern skills. The visualization behind NCCS was to safeguard the instrumentality of education for personality transformation of students along with their social well-being and privileged living after the completion of studies. Today, NCCS has taken the shape of University of South Asia (USA) after a rigorous but remarkable journey of historical transition.
