Top Ranking Engineering colleges and Universities of Pakistan

By on August 3, 2012 with 311 Comments

These are the top Ranking Engineering Universities and colleges of  Pakistan according to HEC ranking of 2012.  This is the list of best engineering universities in Pakistan as ranked by HEC. If you want to become an engineer, remember that these are the best places to study engineering within Pakistan.

Please remember that HEC ranks universities according to two basic criteria – Research output and Number of PhD faculty. I sort of disagree with ranking of Engineering universities done by HEC. For example  if we consider PIEAS, we have to remember that its first batch just passed out in June 2013 and was granted accreditation in June 2013 as well. There are no alumni of PIEAS in the market, so we cannot judge how the employers rate the graduates or how they compare to NUST graduates.  The only reason its ranked No.1 is that it has a lot of  PhDs in its faculty who produce a lot of ISI indexed publications. For HEC its a good enough reason to rank it at No. 1.

Another flaw in the ranking of engineering universities is that no area wise ranking of engineering has been done. For example if you want to study electrical Engineering then is PIEAS better or UET Lahore? We cant tell from this ranking. Engineering should be ranked department wise and not university wise.  LUMS has an electrical engineering department and I am willing to bet that its much better than PIEAS or NUST or GIK. So look at the department instead of looking at the university before choosing where to go.

  • Muneeb Hassan

    Assalam O Alaikum,

    I agree with your opinion that you have expressed in the initiative lines of the post. I’m currently studying in FSC II, I want to become an Electrical Engineer preferably along with the specialization in power so let me know that which institute should I select for Electrical Engineering? You have said above that LUMS has more efficient department of Electrical Engineering than top three universities of Pakistan as ranked/marked by HEC. I request you to help me in this regard.
    Thanking You.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Muneeb,

      LUMS has a much better department of EE for sure. The good news for you is that they are also offering Power and energy systems as a specialization in the EE program. The admission test is held in Feb of each year, and for this year its already done. You have to start the process in Jan 2014 for the admission.
      There will be a test which will include English, mathematics, and subject knowledge of Physics, chemistry and biology.
      Power is offered in UET Taxila and Lahore as well.

      • Muneeb Hassan

        Thank you for your valuable suggestion however I have heard that GIKI has also introduced power engineering from this year or last year. I have noted down your valuable comments however kindly tell me that what should be my second preference, either GIKI or NUST?
        Regards,

        • Guest

          I’ve few questions to ask. I’m optimistic you’ll answer them
          all.

          1. NUST has three colleges offering Electrical Engineering along with the wide
          range of electives including power and energy. SEECS, CEME and PNEC are the
          colleges. I have heard that engineering from CEME is comparatively better than
          others however the course description of Electrical Engineering at the site
          CEME is very short and discouraging as compared to that of other colleges. Kindly
          highlight which college has more reputation in all?

          2. Secondly I must want to know that at LUMS they offer BS program instead of BE. What is the key difference between BS and BE. Are there any aftereffects of getting BS instead of BE?

          3. Since I belong to middle class so I must have to reevaluate my financial state
          before going for the admission in LUMS as according to my rough calculations I have
          to pay approximately 2.5 million rupee for studying for four years at LUMS. Is
          there any financial support in terms of scholarship for a student like me not
          belonging to lower class?

          4. If you know kindly tell me the total number of seats in
          LUMS, NUST and GIKI (every year enrollment capacity)?

          5. What is the scope and exposure of power engineering in
          Pakistan?

          6. Currently I’m also applying for army through technical
          cadet entry; I have to select two or three fields from 6 or 7 including
          electrical, mechanical, mechatronics, telecommunication, civil, software and
          aeronautical engineering. My first priority is obvious that is Electrical.
          Kindly guide me that what should be my second and third priority?

          I am waiting for you answers.

            i have 86% markx in fsc what should i do???

          • jehanzeb_ahmad

            What were your subjects in FSc?. Secondly you should try to follow your interest, and dont worry about the job prospects. If you are good at what you do, jobs will follow you. So select a field for which you are passionate and are willing to work hard.
            Good Luck

            how is dawood university?

          • jehanzeb_ahmad

            Its an old university and its programs are mature. I think its a good option

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          NUST should be the second preference, followed by UET lahore instead of GIK as all good teachers of GIK have left.

  • shahroz

    Which one is better for Mechanical engineering undergraduate?
    GIKI,NUST or NED

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Shahroz
      Its a difficult question to answer when comparing these three universities. Each has its merits. In GIK the mechanical engineering labs are really good. They have some labs which are not present either in CEME or NED. However GIK recently has had problems with retaining good faculty members due to low salary and its location. CEME and NED have good faculty. I would suggest you should visit CEME and GIKI, meet the faculty members and then decide. I cant help you more on this.

      Jehanzeb

  • http://www.facebook.com/abdullah.binhammad.50 Abdullah Bin Hammad

    LUMS Electrical Engineering is better! In what Aspect? High Number of foreign PhD Faculty? Yes GIK’ve lost its reputation but Electrical Engineering at large is on the path of decline, So many Graduates with number of sub-discipline(Saturation), I think there must an evaluation system in PEC or single paper pattern like ICAMP to pass out quality rather then quantity. What do you think?

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Abdullah,
      Having a lot of EE graduates has nothing to do with the quality of a particular university. Both are unrelated. Its like saying since there are a lot of doctors in the world hence Harvard medical School is not good.
      I agree with your last point that PEC should conduct a comprehensive test of all engineering graduates and assess quality and accreditation based on that and not on the facilities of a university.
      Regarding LUMS being better, there are many reasons, foremost being that their faculty is involved with the industry and doing projects for industry worth millions. Faculty at other universities are not doing it. This one fact alone makes it a much better university than the rest. So number of PhDs in my opinion is a misleading indicator and over hyped by HEC. For practical professional education like medicine, engineering, Law etc its your professional experience that is important. So you have to see what those PhDs are doing rather than just counting their numbers

      • http://www.facebook.com/abdullah.binhammad.50 Abdullah Bin Hammad

        I commend your understanding & knowledge as I go through University Advisor site, Do you have any idea about Finland if anyone want to pursue PhD in Electrical Engineering(Communication, Control systems or Signal Processing) from there? Actually I got Master degree from United Kingdom. I know Few universities like Aalto, Oulu & Tempere university of Technology but After the UK Venture I feel its better to get enough information before rushing into something again.or you think Germany?

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          Dear Abdullah
          PhD is a long commitment, so you have to plan carefully. First thing is to keep in the end in mind. What do you want to do after you get your PhD? Do you plan to live in that same country? or come back or move to middle east etc. Also if you will join academics or work in the industry? If you plan to settle abroad then Germany is a better choice than Finland. (Education is free in both countries though). The weather in Finland is quite depressing and very cold :)
          Rest its up to you, both countries have excellent universities.
          best of luck

            Cheers, Frankly speaking these thoughts turn my stomach now a days, primarily for Academics that’s certain. Living abroad again that’s the main worry :D . Bad or good, I always dream to live in my home country. Your first line “PhD is a long commitment” nothing is more true then that. Next, I choose a field which is very Ubiquitous (my own courtesy), Anyways Still I am in a process of selecting the right idea for thesis.
            Thanks a lot again Sir,
            Keep up the good Work.

  • Muhammad Usman Aslam

    A-o-A, Sir please tell me which education department is better for me. I got 70% marks in 9th and I hope I will get good marks in metric so please tell me which education department is best for me and how I can get admission into LUMS.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Usman
      Good to know that you are doing well in your studies and thinking about your future. Currently just focus on getting good marks in matric and then in FSc. Its after FSc that your university will be decided. In my opinion its too early to think about the university at this point. If you are good at Science then just take science subjects in Matric and see how it goes.

      Dear Vishal

      All three are equally good or equally bad, depends on how you want to look at them. Quality of intake is poor in three universities in engineering.

      One piece of advise to you is that you should work on improving your written English, as your future success will depend on it.

    Sr i have got 90 % marks in matric n 86% in fsc 1 Pre enginnering. now i have to decide which field n which university is best suited for me.i wanna knw whether scope of electrical is more thn mechanical?n which uni is best for electrical among these PIEAS,GIKI n NUST?

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Ahsan
      Currently the profession most in demand as far as jobs is concerned is computer sciences or software Engineering. For one job of EE there are 10 jobs for computer sciences in Pakistan and abroad.
      Electrical has more scope than Mechanical, however EE has become a highly saturated field with over 50 universities in Pakistan offering EE degrees.
      I think NUST is better than GIK which is better than PIEAS.

    sir i wanna ask u that which field in engineering is best for girls. and which gives a sound scope for job in practical life??????????

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Sajal and Maryam,
      In my opinion the best field of engineering for girls in Pakistan is software Engineering or computer sciences. The next best area for girls is Telecom Engineering. The reason is simple- Software engineering does not require field work and mostly you sit in an office. In telecom if you go into the planning side of telecom systems, your job would mostly be in the office. Other engineering fields like Civil or mechanical etc require a lot of field work and working on remote sites which is sort of difficult for girls.
      Computer sciences and software engineering has the highest scope for jobs within Pakistan and abroad as well according to all job surveys done recently.

    Sir I got 75% in matric (AKU-EB), 77% in HSSC-1 (BIEK) and hope to improve my % alot more HSSC-2…Moreover, I want to become a Mechanical Engineer, which university do u think would be best for me according to my elligibility???

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Zaeem,
      Currently all universities have a test of their own and merit is usually determined by 50% marks in entry test, 40% in F.Sc and 10% in matric, therefore just your marks in F.Sc are not the only criteria for admission. You can still get admission with these marks if you do really well on the entry test.
      Mechanical is good at UET, NED, NUST, GIKI etc and all have their own entry tests. Therefore for now just try to get your percentage to around 80% and prepare well for the entry test. You can get sample tests from the website of the university.
      good luck

    Sir i want to ask that my maths is not that good but i want to be a software engineer , So which subject i should choose in college ?? What should i do :( ?? And also is the maths in college is hard ??

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Hamza
      For admission in software Engineering program within Pakistan you need to have Maths, Physics, Chemistry or Maths,Physics and computer studies in F.Sc. As maths is compulsory so you cannot avoid it at F.Sc level if you want to do software engineering from an accredited university of Pakistan. Besides software engineering has around 04 courses of maths as well including calculus, linear algebra, discrete maths and differential equations and also numerical methods. Therefore try to improve your maths with tuition etc or work with your friends in group study.
      Math is hard in college but not that hard that you cannot do with some hard work. Everything in life worth getting is hard to get.
      good luck

    Sir, I have interest in Computer Sciences & Software Engineering. Please tell me which University is best (in Lahore) ! Write down at least 3-4 Well Reputed Universities so it will be convenient for me to select.
    What are the Career prospects of Computer/Software Engineering in Pakistan & Abroad ? I’m also quite good in Computer Applications. But I’m still confused whether the Job is really Guaranteed in my field (Computer Science) like Electrical or Mechanical ?

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Imran

      There are more jobs for computer sciences and software engineering than all the other engineerings combined. This holds true for Pakistan and abroad. Therefore job is not an issue.

      Really good places to do computer sciences in Lahore are

      1. LUMS

      2. FAST

      3. UET Lahore

      4. Punjab University IT department

      5. Comsats university

      • Syed Ali Imran

        Thank you for the help, I really appreciate it. But Sir, I am planning to do Software Engineering mainly because it sounds better. And I don’t know why UET Lahore doesn’t offer Software Engineering as a major. Out of the above mentioned Universities, only 2 Universities offer Software namely PU & Comsats and even those 2 are not accredited with PEC yet, so is that an issue ?
        And personally, tell me that ‘are Computer Sciences and Software Engineering same majors’ ?

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          Dear Imran
          You can get a lot of information about software engineering and computer sciences in the course info section of this site. Basically both are the same degree.
          Without PEC accreditation you cannot get a Government Job of software Engineering, other than that it has hardly any other relevance. If you do computer sciences then you do not need PEC accreditation or recognition and you can even do a Government Job. There are only 06 universities in Pakistan which have a PEC recognized software engineering program. Lately PEC is planning to remove it from the engineering list anyways so this issue will not be there.
          Software Engineering is not really Engineering, its just been named that way to attract more students who want to become “Engineers”. I wouldnt worry too much about it and just do a good degree in computer sciences.

  • sajal

    is aeronautical engineering suitable for girls?? would u prefer it over textile, software nd telecommunication engineerig importance wise as well as career wise??? which institutions offer it? regards sajal faraz khan

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Sajal

      I do not think that Aeronautical Engineering is suitable for girls and neither do I think that it has more scope compared to telecom, software engineering or even Textile Engineering.

      The other issue is that Aeronautical engineering is only being offered at Air force Academy Risalpur and the degree is granted by NUST. It is not open to civilians as such and you have to get commission in Air force. Air university Islamabad is offering a degree in Avionics which is about the electronics used in Air crafts.

      Even if you do get a degree in Aeronautical Engineering you only choices would be to work either for PIA or Air Blue or for the Air force (which you cant do unless you go through the entire ISSB process). Therefore I would not recommend this as an option and specially for girls.

    is electronic engineering suitable for girls…..
    can this discipline be reasonable for job and career. it might be not as good as software and telecommunication but i have heard it does not require much field work….. is it correct… please help me sir…. regards shanzay

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Shanzay,
      Yes its true that electronics engineering requires a lot less field work compared to other engineering disciplines. In certain areas of electronics like design, verilog coding, simulations, RF planning, network operations, telecom switching etc there is no field work at all, so yes I agree that electronics / telecom engineering is a field which is very suitable for girls as it gives them options to work in an office as well. So if you like electronics, just go ahead and do it.!!!

      Dear Ali
      In my opinion chemical Engineering is a good field in Pakistan. You can work in the Pharmaceuticals, chemicals, fertilizer plants etc with this degree. World wide the scope is good too but you will have a hard time finding a job in USA, UK, Australia etc being a Pakistani as chemical Engineering is considered to be field related to terrorism for various reasons. However you can work in the middle east with this degree.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Mahnoor
      Well PEC requires that the applicant should have done ICS with Physics, Maths and CS. Therefore for software engineering programs accredited by PEC you will not be eligible, for non accredited programs – maybe. It depends on the university. If you still can change your subjects in F.Sc you should definitely do it.

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          As I mentioned before all universities accredited by PEC will NOT allow this combination in FSc. Software engineering program of Punjab university is NOT accredited by PEC. You can still study there, but getting a Government job as a software engineer will not be possible later. You would be able to work in the private sector. I dont know about GC university. You ll have to check their website for it.

    dear sir ,
    i am Saba from Karachi..i have recently studied 2 semesters in PAF-KIET (BBA-ERP) .i have done my f.s.c from engineering and i am good in maths having good grades in it and i have got 52% i.. but now i have dropped my university which is kiet because i want to go in an another field..BBA is hard for me as accounting is not my thing.. so i want your suggestion,my art is great and i am interested in arts..since i am so much in computer and stuff knowing all about computer and software i..i am confused please suggest me a field that i can go for and that has a scope afterwards..and please let me know about telecommunication engineering if it is suitable for girls ..secondly i am from a middle class family so i can not afford high fee structure so please recommend me a university to.. my brother is studying in IQRA doing bachelors in computer science..thanks .. :)

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Saba,
      Well you have asked a lot of questions in one mail. :) , Let me try to answer them one by one.
      1. As for expenses all Government Universities are almost free and all private universities charge a fee of Rs 50 to 70,000 per semester. So go for a Government university if finances are an issue.
      2. If you are good at Arts and drawing and like computers at the same time, then I would suggest Graphic design as a career choice. It has a lot of potential and you can get a good job and work online as well.
      3. 60% is the minimum marks in FSc for admission in any engineering discipline within Pakistan, so if you have 52% you will not be eligible for admission in any private or Government university in Telecom engineering.
      4. Telecom engineering is a good choice for girls as most telecom companies are based in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi.
      Hope this helps,

      Jehanzeb

    sir mein bohut pareshan hoon q ke mere matric mein 60% se kam hai lekin mere fsc mein 84% hain par mein nust or pieas or fast mein nahi karskta hoon ab mere pass yeh 4 option bachey hain 1.uet 2.air university 3.islamic university for electronics engineering 4. comsats islamabad for computer engineering ab app batao mjhe agr uet mein nahi milti to mein kismein jaon mein bht pareshan hoon mjhe karni hai electronics engineering app batain mjhe advice dein plzzzzzzz mein kismein jaon

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Vishal
      First of all matric carries only 10% weightage in the final merit made at engineering universities, however since you have less than 60% some universities might refuse to consider your application. However there is nothing to worry about. University matters, but your own hard work, skill and attitude also matters a great deal in your success as a professional engineer.

      If you get into UET that is the best and cheapest option. After that I would say Bahria University is better than Air. Dont do computer engineering as it has limited potential. A better option would be to software engineering from Comsats or Bahria. I would not recommend Islamic university as its electrical engineering program is not very high quality.

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          Getting a job depends on how well you do and less on the university. If you do really well in software engineering, are an excellent programmer you ll get a job regardless of the university.

  • Syed Shakir Hussain

    Assalam o alaikum sir

    I am an A-Level student

    At O-Level I have got
    80%………English & Urdu
    70%……….Maths & Chemistry & Computer
    60%…………Physics

    I will be giving my last exam of a levels on 11th June 2013.
    I am interested in Electrical appliances and keen to dig into the parts of every device.

    I am interested in computers equally especially making something new. I have made one small software also at O levels regarding sales and stock.

    I love more practical work than just only always sitting and studying theory especially in physics chemistry and computer.

    I am a bit confused sometime I think to become an electrical engineer, or a mechanical, software, chemical or bi o-chemist.
    I have heard polymer industry has a good scope. Is that true?

    Please guide me for the best of my future, the best field which have good scope and the best university that would get me there?

    I will be really thank full.

    Syed Shakir Hussain

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Shakir
      All engineering has practical and theoretical aspects. Without understand the theory you cannot do practical work in a informed way. This approach is usually of Technicians and semi technical persons. Therefore although you find theory boring, it is very essential.
      All engineering fields have a lot of scope, and it depends on your abilities and how good you are.
      For EE and Computer sciences LUMS is the best, followed by NUST, GIK and UET. For computer sciences FAST is good too.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Maria
      regarding Bio-medical Engineering, I have the following observations:-
      1. You dont need to do Bio medical Engineering to be a biomedical Engineer. You can get into bio medical after doing electronics engineering as it uses most of the components and knowledge of electronics like DSP, image processing, filtering, amplifications, magnetic resonance. This way you keep your options open later if you dont find a job in bio medical field.
      2. Bio medical has lot of scope abroad but little in Pakistan. No company in Pakistan is developing any bio medical equipment. They are just selling it and providing after sales services (repair and maintenance).
      3. Siemens is the largest bio medical company operating in Pakistan.

      Regarding computer and information systems, I would say dont do computer engineering, as it has no scope in Pakistan or abroad. It is highly saturated. CS and information systems is good but you should be good at Programming and algorithms.

    well most of the students here are discussing which is the best engineering university/field in pakistan, i am a recent engineering graduate….gik and nust surely tops the list ,nust campuses in isl/rwp have good setup for research there new h-12 campus is pretty good , giki have good foreign faculty (although number has declined in last 10 years) but they still have some,had really good setup for engineering and there campus is also pretty attractive….i say if you want a good job go for giki ,man these days jobs are less and giki career office gets most companies …..they along with lums have good placements….both are good ,nust is cheaper i suppose :O

    I have bs, eco and accounts in my alevels but I want to study software engineering…Can you please help me weather I can get admission in good universities?

    Second thing I came to know that I can get admission in ned through self finance seat which cost 5 lakhs….is it true..??

    Please help…

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Mudassir,
      NO PEC accredited university can offer you admission in software engineering with your subjects. Thats for sure. Rest there are many universities not accredited by PEC who might admit you. It is up to you to decide whether PEC is essential for you later. (You need it for Government jobs).
      NED offers admission on self finance, but provided you fulfill the eligibility criteria for software engineering. 5 Laks is reasonable for the entire degree which is 4 years. It is in line with most private universities.

    my degree would have worth or not ?????????

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Atif,
      You will not be a able to work in any Government job as an engineer without PEC registration, and will not be able to work in a private company that works on contract / consulting with a Government department. However you can work in private companies, go for higher studies, get scholarships etc without PEC registration.

    Dear Sir,

    I have done MS in software engineering from bahria
    university Islamabad. I applied in a university for the post of Assistant
    professor and they rejected my application considering me irrelevant candidate
    for software engineering. I was shocked I further inquired and get to know that
    PEC don’t consider MS in software engineering and considers only those
    candidates who have done BS in software engineering with PEC number. Sir I strongly
    believe that it is unfair, if
    universities are undertaking students for a degree than that degree should be
    recognized by all, and if there are such issues students should not be enrolled
    in such degrees, I fell as I have wasted my precious two years, Sir I wanted to know rejection of my
    application was valid or it is because university is not completely familiar with
    PEC requirements for SE. as SE cannot be treated as other engineering domains
    as it is an offshoot of Computer Science and has its roots in CS and I believe
    candidate having a bachelors in computer science and MS in software engineering
    should be eligible for software engineering. Please guide me in this context

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Tania,

      Unfortunately the university is right. PEC grants registration based only on bachelors degrees and not on Masters. Even if you do a PhD in Software Engineering you will still not get PEC registration.
      I think Bahria University is not at fault here, as all universities are admitting students in Masters in Electronics, electrical, software engg, PhDs etc, but it is understood that these degrees do not fall in the purview of PEC. PEC regulates only Bachelors level education and recognizes only that degree.
      All is not lost, you can still apply for all jobs in computer sciences area. For that you dont need PEC number. So try to go for those jobs in private and Government sector.

      Dear Mubeen
      I would rate Mehran University Jamshoro better than sir syed university for civil engineering and for other engineering disciplines as well. They are very big and have lots of resources, and its a Government university so the fee is very low. Getting admission would be difficult though and if you had a hard time at Bahria, then Mehran would be even more tough. Keep that in mind.

      Dear Murad
      Your salary depends on your job performance, the company you are working for, your skill level and many other factors. You just cannot make a blanket statement that management sciences pays more than engineering. I know engineers in Pakistan making 8-10 Laks per month in salary in telecom and other multinationals.

      Mechatronics is a completely stupid field and I dont know who came up with this idea. You will neither be a good electrical nor a good mechanical engineer after doing it. Just do plain mechanical engineering and you should do just fine.

  • Abdul Muiez

    Sir Muhammad Ali Jinnah offering Bsc Mechanical Engineering program in Islamabad campus i want to that is their mechanical

    Engineering program accredited by PEC?

    Other thing that i want to know that is PEC give any kind of permission to start that program?

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Abdul
      Currently the mechanical engineering program of MAJU is not accredited by PEC, however it takes around 2 years after starting a new program to get the accreditation by PEC. Therefore I think that this program will eventually get accredited, though there is some risk. MAJU is a very well run university by qualified professionals and I am pretty sure they will get the accreditation from PEC eventually.
      No engineering program can be started without permission by PEC, so they would have gotten that permission.
      Read the 66 and 65 EAQC meeting minutes on the PEC website to get more information on the status.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Asad
      with close to 60% marks, getting admission in a Government engineering university like NED would be very hard, unless you do really well in the entrance exam. Mechanical has a lower merit than electrical so it would relatively easy to get into mechanical engineering. Secondly you should also see your aptitude. After all engineering has a lot of physics and maths and you should be good at both.

  • Shamoil

    Sir , I have Just given my Exams of Inter (Second year) From Karachi And Waiting For My Result. My First Year percentage Is 52% , Unfortunately Every Fine University Demands Above 60% , I have interest in computer and software engineering , I don’t want to switch to commerce, Should I Go To Private Universities Like Iqra SZEBIST, Maju etc ? Or I Should repeat 1st Year ? And What You Say About Aeronautical Engineering ?

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Shamoil,
      According to PEC regulations you need a minimum of 60% marks in intermediate to qualify for admission in an accredited engineering program. Therefore if you are sure that you can get more than 70% in the second year your aggregate will cross 60%. If you are not sure then I think repeating first year is the only choice if you want to do engineering.
      I am personally not in favor of aeronautical engineering as jobs prospects are extremely limited and its offered only by air force academy through ISSB selection.

      In my opinion civil engineering is still a very good option, for that simple reason that you can start your own business like a construction firm, or partner with an architect etc. People will always be constructing houses, buildings, roads, plazas etc, so civil is a good field.
      Doing civil engineering from UET Lahore is an excellent option if you can get admission.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Usman,
      You have to be clear what you mean by best? is it in terms of jobs prospects, or in terms of interest?. In terms of job prospects electrical is still better than mechanical engineering.
      For electrical engineering LUMS is better than any other university in Pakistan, followed by UET Lahore. For mechanical UET Lahore is the best, for the simple reason that the quality of students that come to UETs is unmatched at any other university. So when you compete with the best, you improve a lot too.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Reshail,
      I admire your intentions to do some thing for Pakistan, but I think you need to keep some facts in mind. First of all, an invention by you or any body else will not change the condition of Pakistan or its people. An invention is nothing unless it is turned in a product at a price at which people are willing to buy it. Economy is changed through production of goods and not by inventions. China did not invent the CD player, or mp3 or air conditioner or a car or any thing that we use daily. It is just producing those things at an affordable rate and hence its economy is so good. Unless you can mass produce some thing you cannot help anyone. Secondly all inventions have to obey the laws of physics and its limitations. Therefore trust me if you are thinking of inventing a car that runs on water or some thing like that, it is not possible. It will not be science, but a fraud just like the guy who made an engine run on hydrogen.

      If you want to improve Pakistan, just improve yourself, be honest, be sincere and just work hard. Thats all Pakistan needs from its people. It doesnt need any individual to do some magic. And that is how USA has become a super power.

        well , thanks a lot for such a nice piece of advice . but sir my question is remain unanswered :) the question in the last i asked . and who cares about economy ?? whenever i met with my foreigner frnds or the people from PAKISTAN ,who studied abroad , they always talk against the PAKISTAN . and that really hurts . i just want to show the world that we have so much talent but we dnt know how to use it . and many more talks i can share but sir now the important thing for me is to please answer my above question . rizq khuda ne likha ha to ku bhaage rizq k peche . we , Muslims , have the best history and still we can make it :)

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          To give you a simple reply I would say UET Lahore, and mechanical Engineering, as there are far too many electrical Engineers already in Pakistan looking for jobs. Its hard to find good mechanical engineers.

            thank you so much ! because i really like it but people over here say me that to choose ELECTRICAL .
            could i do something new in this field ??

          • jehanzeb_ahmad

            you can always do new things in any field, be it electrical or sociology. After all thousands of PhDs are awarded in every discipline in the world. So that is not an issue.

    sir comsatas wah kya civil engering kra rhi hy……or agr kra rhi hy to as ke degree ke value ho ge kya..??

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      The degree will have less value to start with as its a new program. Over time if comsats maintains its standards in civil engineering its degree will gain value. Please check PEC website to see if the program is as yet accredited by PEC or not.

    sir plz tell me about Behria Universty For Electronic Enginering,, it is best for engineering or not? and what is its Scope of engineering??

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      I think Bahria University has a good electrical Engineering program and ranks equally with comsats, MAJU, Air University etc. The value of Bahria university degree is less than NUST or GIK or UET though. Rest it will depend on you and how well you learn engineering.

  • Choudary Ahmad Pervaiz

    sir i have just done my inter my average is 59%.i like mechanical,electrical and civil.can you tell me.at which university i apply?and what i can do mechanical,electrical or civil

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Pervaiz
      As per PEC rules you need to have more than 60% marks to be eligible for engineering. Most universities will not grant you admission with 59% marks. I only know of Hamdard University that does grant admission and then they ask the students to study in a foundation semester and get more than 60% marks.
      I would suggest that you improve your percentage to over 60% or chose some other field of study.
      good luck

  • Hamza Rashid

    sir can u plz tell me about the university which is best 4 aeronautical engineering????

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Aeronautical engineering is offered only at Risulpur through Pak Air force academy. If you want to do that you have to get regular commission in Air force. They are the only ones that can employ you after this degree in Pakistan.

  • princes sana

    what is the demand of computer science in pakistan.. can we get easily job from this field?? and plz prefer which is the best engineering or commerce to get easily job?

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Sana
      I have saying this on my site all along, that the job prospects of computer sciences are really good in Pakistan and abroad. They are certainly better than engineering or commerce. The only important thing is that you must become really good at programming in order to get a job. If you do CS and cannot program then you wont get any job. Programming is a skill and can be learnt just like any other skill with due hard work and application.

  • Sheikh Ejaz Ahmad

    AOA Sir …. I’m a student of punjab group of college … i scored 455 (87.5 %) in first year and i’m hopeful to get good marks in part 2 also ….. My first preference is to do mechanical engg from Uet lahore …but what should be my second preference mechatronics form uet or geological engg from punjab university ….
    And kindly tell me dat which uni is more recognized in petroleum eng ,,,, punjab uni or uet lahore ???

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      UET Lahore is more highly ranked by employers for petroleum engineering compared to PU, although PU is good too.
      You should be able to get admission in mechanical engineering with these marks. Mechatroncs in my opinion is a completely useless field and a waste of time. As a second choice Geological engineering is much better.

      • Sheikh Ejaz Ahmad

        so sir according to you my second choice should be geology, not petroleum eng ??

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          Difficult to say. With petroleum engineering you can only work for oil companies, whereas with geology you can work for oil companies and other organizations as well. So its a tough call. Follow your heart and see what interests you more. Cant say more that this

      • Sheikh Ejaz Ahmad

        and sir what about geological engg should i choose uet or Pu ?

  • AtifJaved

    sir what about b.arch from pu r nca
    ????

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Both are good universities and I think architecture is a very good field in Pakistan. You can start your own business as well if you have good aesthetic sense.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Please see my reply on the above subject regarding comsats. Civil engineering is good and has scope within Pakistan and abroad as well.

      • Ali

        Respected Sir!
        If you ever make a mistake to visit PIEAS. They will never allow such a cheap person who doesn’t know ABC about PIEAS. Can you think PIEAS has visiting faculty graduates from MIT. Just one name is enough Dr. Inam ur Rehman. Visiting faculty from PAEC organisations are Ph.ds with two decades of experience. Have you ever met with Scientists. You have never done so. But I have studied from Post Dotorates Senior Scientists. It’s my open challange that none of Pakistani university provides so much Hi fi facilities on most economical fee. We enjoy facilities more than gikians just in 40000/semester.
        These are ground realities. No offense plz…

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          Dear Mr. Ali,
          First of all a university is known by its graduates – how polished, skilled and well mannered they are. In your case I see that you do not have the ability to disagree on a academic matter without getting rude and illogical. Please do learn to voice your opinion without getting either rude or personal.
          Secondly since I have worked as a Project Director and a general Manager in a NESCOM, trust me I am not only allowed to visit PIEAS, but I have done so many time. I also know their faculty on a personal basis including the Dean, and HOD.

          I stand by what I have said. PIEAS engineering programs are NOT accredited PEC. This is a very serious issue for the graduates as they start coming to the market and are not able to apply for any engineering jobs.
          Secondly please go through the PIEAS website. I am posting couple of links below. Some of the pages of the university were last updated in 2004, and some pages in 2009. Even the research output page does not state any publication after 2009.
          Third faculty members keep switching universities, and tomorrow Mr. Inam might be teaching at Air university or CECOS in Peshawar, so hopefully then you wont start defending CECOS as the best university.
          I am happy to see that you want to defend your educational institution, and that is good, but use data, logic, employer feedback etc, instead of using derogatory language about a very senior, and much more learned person than yourself.

            Sir, I, first of all, apologise for passing harsh comment.

            Sir, I’ll just say first batch (2009-2013) of electrical and mechanical have passed out with accredtion.

            As a proof
            http://www.pec.org.pk/Downloads.aspx#acc1

            and have a look at 65th minutes of Engineering accredtion. in the list at # 8, it is elaborately declared that intake batch 2009-2013 is accredited with PEC.

            Uni adm does not update just because it is classified to some extent.

            That’s why PIEAS hasgained the title of being No. 1 Engg Institute.

            overall, this blog is a much valuable and serves a good source of information.

  • Rana ALI

    is comsats abbotabad campus is good for civil engineering???

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Rana
      Its difficult to say at this time. civil Engineering was started just last year at comsats Abbotabad, and right now they dont have a lot of experienced faculty. PEC accreditation is also pending (they will get it though). Overall comsats is a good university to study. I would prefer UET or GIK for civil, but that depends on admission. If those options are not available then go for comsats.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Its a new department and started in 2012. They dont have a lot of faculty in civil engineering right now, although the labs have been established. PEC accreditation is awaited. It will improve over time.

  • Ayesha Malik

    Sir my brother is doing Mechanical engineering from Bahauddin Zakariya University now he is thinking to again apper in ECAT should he be doing this in case if he gets addmission in uet or uet taxila should he waste his 1 year? Any advice plz.

      I think its not worth it. I think he should now continue with BZU university. He can then do an MS from a reputed and respected university

  • jahanzeb nasir

    aoa…sir i have secured 44o marks in ist year and i am hoping for better this year..can u please guide me .to which universiity should i apply for electrical and also for petroleum enginering…? is uet the best option for me after nust…please do let me know..

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      It all depends on your second year result as well. Plus entry test has 30 to 50% marks. At this point it is difficult to say. Petroleum engineering is not offered at NUST so that leaves UET only. Right now just work hard for your second year.

  • Suleman Jaffar

    sir in matric i got 45% marks and in ics 75% so in( fast )they give me admission or not ? and which university best for software engineering

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      I dont think that your percentage in matric would matter much as it would carry at most 10% marks. Your Fsc marks are good, so if you do well in the entry test you ll get admission in FAST.
      NUST, Bahria, FAST all have good software engineering programs.

      • yasir anwar

        sir i don’t think he is eligible for engineering 45% to less 60% in metric is minimum requirement.

          Thanks for the correction. FAST has this condition, however most other universities do not have any condition on matric marks.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      The only difference PEC accreditation will make is that you will be eligible for Government jobs where a software engineer is required. As far as higher studies or working in the private sector is concerned it would make no difference. You can also work in a Government job on a CS opening where PEC is not required. So its up to you.

  • Rashid Iftikhar

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      FAST is a reputed university, but its much better in CS and computer related areas as compared to electrical Engineering. I would rate Comsats, Fast etc in the same category for EE in Lahore. Better places are LUMS followed by UET Lahore

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      I would say EME college NUST and UET Lahore are both equal, although NUST graduates might have some advantage over getting a job. Third option should be NED Karachi. But this is my personal opinion only, do discuss with others as well before you make a decision

      • Sami Uchiha

        Sir, I Am Actually talking about CIVIL ENGINEERING lots of people have suggested NED over NUST and the reason they state is that NED’s CIVIL is old while NUST is still not so good in civil field what do u suggest??

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          Dear Sami
          NED is in Karachi, so you have to consider that as well as you ll have to relocate. Other than this it will hardly make much difference among NUST, UET and NED.

            If you live in karachi then NED or Dawood College should be preferred. Much better to live at home, rather than in a Hostel with 12 hour load shedding and 45 C temperature.

          • Muhammad Aaqib

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Both are very good options in my opinion. You ll be able to get a good job with either architecture or Geology. You ll have more options with architecture as with Geology your best option would be oil companies and if you cannot get into one of them, you might find your self in a bit of trouble. Rest it depends on your interest too…

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          I do not agree. If you are a good architect you can have your own design firm, and start on a small scale of designing houses and later on go to larger projects. THere are so many large civil engineering projects going on in Pakistan these days, for eg Bahria Town, and other housing societies, plus huge buildings like centaurus etc. Government departments like CDA, LDA etc also hire architects. So I dont think architecture is a bad field. A simple one kanal house design costs usually around 100K these days…Rest its your life and you are the final stake holder.

          There isnt much difference in engineering between fast and comsats. Your future is in your hands, and how hard you work, how good of an engineer you are and whether you just cram for exams or you really develop conceptual understanding of material. No university can make you do all of this except yourself.

      Dear Shumaila
      Bio medical is neither offered in UET Lahore nor at LUMS. It is offered in NED university Karachi. You dont need to take any extra exams after A levels as you ll get equivalency from IBCC. you will have to appear in the entry test of various universities for admission.

    Dear Sir Asalamualikum . I am in a very difficult situation right now . I hope You would help me . I went for admiision in MAJU university with my two other friends . We planned to select Mechanical there but during filling of form i dont know what thing came up to my mind and i selected electronics do you thing that is a good thing ……….

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Saeed
      Its not a difficult situation at all. You can try talking to MAJU administration and change the option. If they do not agree, then just appear in the entry test and if you get the offer of admission in Electronics then request the HOD to change your discipline to Mechanical. Since Mechanical is lower merit than Electronics, they would have no issues in shifting you to a lower merit program. The reverse is difficult when you get admission in a lower merit program and want a transfer to a higher merit degree. So try that and let me know.

    sir i have got 338 merit number in nust and i am also in the waiting list of pieas and there are fair chances of mine to get admission in these two universities and i am also hope full to get admission in uet taxila,,,i want to do mechanical engineering so please tell me which one is best with respect to job placement and market value…and i am also bit worried of the relative marking system of nust about which people say it makes you attain less gpa and uetians usually get a very good gpa due to abolute marking and while seeking a job mostly your gpa is counted so uetians are preffered over nustians. so is this true?

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Hamza,
      These are all myths spread by people who dont know how the market works. secondly relative marking has no effect on your GPA. If you are in the top20% of your class your GPA will be close to 4. Besides employers see a lot of things while selecting for a job and not just the GPA. In my opinion your job prospects are best if you graduate from NUST, followed by UET and then PIEAS. This is based on employer feedback and also on my personal experience when I have been part of the selection board at a number of organizations. So thats my take on the whole issue.

      I would say its average.

  • M Raza Wazir

    Sir I want to do Software Eng is it have a scope in pak???

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Raza,
      I have written on this a lot on this blog. In my opinion software engineering is the best engineering field these days and will remain so in the foreseable future. Its definitely better than electrical.

  • ali ahmed

    sir. which uni will you suggest foe mechanical snd why ist islamabad or hitec texila.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Between IST and Hitech, I would prefer IST for mechanical.
      Jehanzeb

  • ali ahmed

    sir which uni will you prefer for mechanical

    ist islamabad
    or
    hitec texila

  • ali ahmed

    sir but ist mechanical is not recognised by pec and hitec mech is so doesn’t that make much difference?

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Ali
      PEC recognition is really important later, however the PEC accreditation is a long process-almost 3 years so by the time you graduate PEC recognition will be there. I am sure IST management are aware of the importance of PEC, and will get it in due course of time. Just check with them if they have permission to start the program from PEC or not, as that is required before starting any engineering program. If they have written permission they will eventually get the PEC recognition as well.
      Good Luck

    Assalam O Alikum!
    Sir, my name is Muhammad Haseeb Khalid. And I am writing you in order to get some information regarding Nust specifically about its school of mechanical engineering in Islamabad. Just to be a bit short, what do you think are the chances of a student of NUST SMME to get admission in MIT, Stanford, CALTECH etc. ( top universities of world) for post graduate? And what sort activities we should specifically do in order to get in these top universities.
    Sir, I shall be highly thankful to you if you can reply me with valuable information.
    Regards,
    Muhammad Haseeb Khalid

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Haseeb,

      Yes definitely after getting a bachelors degree from NUST you can get admission in MIT, Stanford or Caltech. Please do remember that these are the best universities in the world, so getting into them would be tough. During the next four years you need to do the following
      1. Get a really good score in GRE test. You can only do this if you have a very good vocabulary, and that you can only have if you read a lot of books on every subject and not just technical.
      2. You need to maintain a GPA of 3.7 or above.
      3. You need to do some social service during your studies
      4. You need to do internships at top companies.
      5. you need to be active in extra curricular activities as well.
      This is a tough list, but its not easy to be the best in the world. And rewards are likewise.
      good luck,
      Jehanzeb

      • Muhammad Haseeb Khalid

        Thank you very much Sir!

        • Muhammad Haseeb Khalid

          Dear Sir!
          Hope you are doing well. Sir, can you kindly tell how important are the teacher or department recommendations for admission in MIT, Caltech etc. for post graduate.

          Regards,
          Muhammad Haseeb Khalid

          • jehanzeb_ahmad

            Faculty recommendations are very very important. Unlike Pakistan in the USA faculty is given the utmost respect and importance and their opinions carry a lot of weight.
            Jehanzeb

          • Muhammad Haseeb Khalid

            Assalam O Alikum Sir!
            Hope you are doing well. Sir, in your first reply regarding this question you said that one should do internships in top companies. Sir, can you kindly tell me the names of any top mechanical engineering companies in Pakistan that have international recognition.
            Sir, are there any mechanical engineering’ internships in top companies of world that are done on scholarships or other funding agencies. And also are there any summer schools in the top universities of world for mechanical engineering students that are funded by those universities.

            I shall be highly thankful to you.

  • Fatima

    Aoa,sir i want to ask which field as well as university gonna better for me being a girl…CSITSE from PU,or material n science engg. from IST,or product and industrial design from UET lhr

    • usama khalid

      if you have intrst in cs then fast….if chemical engg then pu…i advice u to go for cs frm fast…bcz in cmg era u will see computer scients a step forward frm ee….

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Fatima,
      IST is in Islamabad, PU and UET are in Lahore. So I am assuming that you ll have to live in a hostel in one of these cities. So keep that in mind as I think IST does not have any hostel facility. Being a girl living in a private hostel is difficult. However leaving aside this consideration, I think software related fields are better for girls as dont require any field work. Material engg as such does not have a lot of scope as far as jobs are concerned specially in Pakistan. Again the number of jobs in industrial design are also limited. Rest it depends on your interest as well.

  • Shoaib Ahmad

    Assalam O Alikum!

    Sir, I need to ask about some universities. I want to take admission in BS Engg and I already had applied at iiui.
    Further I want to apply in some other universities i.e UCP, LEADS University Lhr and also in Gujrat University. I had got 76% marks in F.Sc part 1. Please guide me about my this stress. And recommend me some other Universities.

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Shoaib
      Firstly your choice for universities is not that good for doing engineering. Regarding admission, all universities have admissions tests and just marks in fsc are not the only criteria anymore, therefore yes you can get admission provided you do well in the entry test of punjab university or GCU
      Jehanzeb

      • Shoaib Ahmad

        Sir the problem is that I had just lost the ecat. Therefore I think there is no more choice for me in Govt. sectors thats why I’m thinking about these Universities.

        Can you please suggest me some better universities.

        • jehanzeb_ahmad

          I would say Air University, Bahria University, Comsats etc are still better than what you are going for.
          Jehanzeb

          • Shoaib Ahmad

            But as you know their admission are just closed.

  • Sheikh Ejaz Ahmad

    sir what u say about the merit of uet this year it will rise or wall ?? and if my agg is 82.355 then will i get admission in mechanical ???

    • jehanzeb_ahmad

      Dear Ejaz
      Your marks are good, I think with reasonable performance in the entry test, mechanical should be ok for you.
