​​​The project was approved by ECNEC in September, 2007. The main objective of this project is to produce 1500 PhD level Engineers, Scientists and Technologists who will eventually become the potential faculty members of the Universities of Engineering, Science and Technology.

These institutes are being built in collaboration with technologically advanced universities of France, Italy, Germany, China, South Korea and Austria. Later, the scope of this faculty was extended to the existing Engineering Universities in the country.

The project continues to award MS leading to PhD & PhD scholarships at top-ranked universities of USA, UK, Canada, Austria, China, France, Germany, Belgium, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Turkey, Australia, Italy etc (As per updated list). Most of the universities and countries are offering reduced tuition fee rates to the HEC.

  • Allocation of seats according to Govt of Pakistan Quota Policy.

The main objective of this project is to produce 1500 PhD level Engineers, Scientists and Technologists who will essentially be the potential faculty members and academic resource persons for the Universities of Engineering Sciences and Technology in Pakistan.
