History & Progress

Located at the gateway to Central Asian Republics, in the 2500 years old historic city of Peshawar, our university boasts a rich cultural diversity, and is steeped in traditions of hospitality, valour and frontier romance.

We are proud to showcase a seat of higher learning in the engineering sciences in a geo-political area that has, of late, been in the news for other reasons. From the traditional to the cutting edge, we offer a wide spectrum of engineering disciplines to students in our four campuses across NWFP.

We believe engineers should be centrally placed in policy making at all levels, and that is why our teaching sharply focuses on developing leadership skills. This way our graduates take their very relevant technical knowledge, and leverage it into a potent tool for sustainable development of the nation.
