University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Lahore was established in 1961 as West Pakistan University of Engineering and Technology by upgrading Mughalpura Technical College, established in 1921. Its more familiar name of the pre-University era, the Maclagan Engineering College was given to it in 1923 when Sir Edwards Maclagan, the then Governor of Punjab laid down the foundations of the building, now called the Main Block. UET Lahore therefore is the oldest engineering education institution of the country. In 1961 the University had four engineering degree programs. The University now has twenty engineering degree programs and an equal number of Postgraduate and PhD programs. The faculties and the laboratories have been providing services like consulting, design and testing to other organizations including State Sectors, commercial organizations and education sector.

Here I am about to discuss the reasons why one should opt to go for UET. According to me UET is the institution providing quality based high class education is the field of Engineering, Technology, Development and Advancement. Professors and lecturers, ideologists and philosophers, politicians and businessmen, some of the most successful in the country and the world, are always present in UET’s auditoriums to inspire models and open visions for each and every one of you.

More than 90%
of the UET students are employed. UET students and graduates are the most wanted in the labor market. That is because UET politics follow the development and promotion of each student. In support of the career orientation center there are also eight boards with member personalities and leaders from some of the largest public and private institutions, companies and businesses in the country which get together on a regular basis and contribute with valuable advice, propositions, and suggestions.
is UETs’ campus size which includes 12,000 m2 of service buildings. The campus includes modern auditoriums (lecture halls), labs, the library, and various service areas like the photocopy copy room, internet room, bar and restaurant, parking lot, and the garden park.
Students have chosen to study in UET.

In UET Network,
There are more than 2400 former graduates employed now in private companies, public institutions, nonprofits, or who have taken the initiative for self-employment. Through “UET ALUMNI”, they keep in contact and foster relationships with the graduates. As they still consider them as one of their most precious assets. “UET ALUMNI” and UET staff meet periodically, willing to help and support one another.
of the students who have graduated in the first cycle of studies in UET have applied in the best universities abroad and have managed to earn a place in them. With the European credit transfer system it is possible to transfer studies in universities of other countries, in Europe or beyond, as well as the recognition of the diploma. The “UET Diploma” is a guarantee for more.
UET in Tirana
Due to its geographical position and its building structure UET is an opportunity for everyone. All those who love the noise and entertainment that Tirana offers can simply use the system of public transportation (the bus stations of the two main traveling lines are close by), taxies (numerous as soon as you get out of the building), or they can walk on foot walking for a few minutes to reach one of the many popular areas for the youth: the Bloc and its numerous café-bars; a very good opportunity to spend study-free weekends or just to and relax. For a more enriching spiritual experience Tirana offers many museums and galleries as well as various touristic destinations. Many websites can help you to make the right choice.
