Engineers are the builders of a country. Engineering is one field where the professionals are constantly discovering ways to improve the standard of living by creating bold and innovative solutions that connect science with life.
In Pakistan, there are several engineering universities in various parts of the country providing high standard and up to date education to the students. Although their names and locale are different, their aim is the same.
They strive to impart fundamental knowledge and develop basic professional skills among the aspiring engineers and mold them into skilled and competent individuals. The graduates of these universities are employed by some of the leading local and multinational organizations.
Besides the undergraduate programs, post graduate (Masters and PhD) courses are also offered for both full time and part time students. The post graduate courses aim at equipping the students with the latest technologies and developments in their respective fields. The research work carried out by the students is also published in local and international journals.
PEC–Pakistan Engineering Council regulates the educational courses of these universities and is constantly striving to promote and improve the quality of education in the area of engineering and technology. Some of these institutions are recognized throughout the world and they also attract foreign students.
