Top 5 Engineering Universities in Pakistan

Pakistan is the seventh largest country in the world to produce the pool of engineers and scientists. In Pakistan there are round about one hundred and fifty universities. These universities are accredited with Higher Education Commission of Pakistan known as HEC. HEC manages and make higher education policy and assures quality in order to fulfil the international standards and also issues accrediting academic degrees across Pakistan. HEC is also responsible for the occurrence of new institutions, and upgrade the standards of the existing institutions in Pakistan. All the Engineering Universities in Pakistan are affiliated with Pakistan Engineering Council normally known as PEC.

Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC):

Pakistan Engineering Council normally known as PEC is responsible for the registration of engineers, consulting engineers, constructors/operators and accreditation of engineering programmes offered by universities/institutions, guarantee and supervise the continuation of professional development, helping the Federal Government, creating standards for engineering products and services besides protecting the interest of its members. The council shall cheer, promote and manage working of professional engineering bodies for productivity and creativity as guardian of engineering under the roof of the Council.

Role of Higher Education Commission in Pakistan:

The HEC’s primary motive is to develop the higher education system in Pakistan along with main aim of remodeling the universities and colleges in the country. Over the past few years, the HEC played a very major and dominant part towards developing knowledge based economy in Pakistan by providing every year different scholarships in various fields and levels to the needy and motivated students who wants to study abroad. The HEC is responsible for the University rankings in Pakistan. The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan HEC is also responsible for the following things Higher education infrastructure development, Increase industry and university research collaboration, Faculty development, Curriculum revision, Degree Attestation, Indigenous scholarships, Foreign scholarships, Patent filing support, Conference travel grants and Developing new technology parks.
