Comsats University, also known as Comsats Institute of Information Technology is located in Islamabad, Pakistan. The facility is part of a public sector university. As an educational institute, it works under the umbrella of the Ministry of Science and Technology of the Government of Pakistan.

Comsats supports a research and development department that has been working on the design for a solar cooker with heat storage capability. This will allow the cooker to be used past sunset, and be able to reach cooking temperatures of 250°C (480°F). The solar collector has the capability to be located in a remote location, possibly on the rooftop.

They have also been teaching solar cooking since 2010, and have taught over 200 people through 2011.
