Faculty of Engineering
The University College of Engineering & Technology (UCET) was established in 1999 as a constituent college of The Islamia University of Bahawalpur that acquired the status of Faculty of Engineering in 2019. The objective of the faculty is to provide cutting edge engineering education for the aspiring young students of the country in general and for the students of Southern Punjab in particular. The faculty provides excellent technical & engineering education while keeping in view the overall growth and development of the students in mind.
The faculty is offering undergraduate degree in Electronic, Computer Systems, Electrical (power), Electrical (Communication) and Civil engineering disciplines. The faculty is also offering master's degree in electronic, computer systems and electrical engineering. PhD engineering program has been launched in 2019. Recently, PC-1 for establishment of Mechanical Engineering department has been approved by HEC. All undergraduate engineering programs are accredited by the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC).
There are 62 faculty members (majority of them are PhDs) engaged in teaching around 800 students in both undergraduate and graduate engineering programs. The faculty members are well-trained, highly motivated and committed to the provision of quality education and excellence to the students. The faculty has excellent infrastructure comprising of well-equipped state of the art laboratories, spacious air-conditioned classrooms, well stocked library with more than 40,000 engineering books and latest computing labs equipped with more than 400 modern computers and multimedia facilities in all labs and classrooms. Engineers, after getting their degrees from this institution are playing pivotal role in leading the nation in the 21st century.
To transform faculty of engineering into a regional center of excellence in knowledge, research, and innovation, contributing towards Pakistan's long-term socio-economic development goals.
The faculty of engineering aspires to achieve academic excellence through the continual pursuit of education, learning, research, and skill development to serve the national interests and to negotiate the critical socio-economic needs of the region. The faculty aims at inspiring the students to acquire leadership and social skills to shape the unparalleled progressive entrepreneur culture.
