List of Top Best Engineering Universities In Pakistan


According to the HEC, top engineering institutions in Pakistan have been ranked. The Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) governs the profession of engineeing in the country and accredits each university in the country that provides graduate programs in engineering. Numerous distinct areas of engineering are educated at various universities throughout Pakistan. These include Industrial Engineering, Systems Engineering, Computer Science, aerospace engineering, software engineering, Telecom engineering, Textile Engineering etc., among a plethora of other fields of engineering.

According to a recent survey, “Pakistan holds the highest proportion of young folks in its historical record,” implying that a lot of students are attempting to apply to various Pakistani universities. However, “having studied at a very well uni that provides high – quality learning is among the major elements behind such a successful professional career,” as per the survey.

Thousands of young people enroll in engineering universities per year to continue their education by becoming competent engineers. However, most of them seem to have no knowledge of which institution is the ideal.  When it comes to getting a quality education, it is critical to understand which universities are ranked first in the country by the Higher Education Commission. Once you understand this, you can apply for admission and receive a quality education.

The following is the final list of top engineering universities in Pakistan issued by HEC. Here is a concise overview of leading engineering universities in Pakistan, organized on rank & educational level. In other terms, you will know whether which university is ideal for an engineering degree, and then after graduation, you will indeed be able to easily find a high-quality work in Pakistan or anyplace else in the globe as a trained engineer.

Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences & Technology Topi:

GIKI stands for Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology. It was established in 1993 and is based on Pakistan’s TOPI. Because it is a private institution, it is much more costly than that of other engineering universities in Pakistan.

Past President Ghulam Ishaq Khan’s honor is commemorated at GIKI University. It is among the most prominent aspects of GIK that legends have endorsed the organization. As an assistant professor of physics, Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan too has joined the faculty at this institution.

The students at this reputable institute benefit from the leading engineering courses available anywhere. This is a private university located in the town of Topi, in the province of Swabi.

The clock tower that is featured in GIKI university is among the most beautiful things that we may observe. This is something that we may not see in other institutions. This clock tower gives a perspective of Tarbela Dam, making the surrounds prominent for miles.

According to the latest HEC rankings, GIKI University is the 3rd best Pakistan’s engineering university.

The University of engineering technology:

It is one of Pakistan’s most prestigious and well-known engineering institutes. It is actually a chain of institutions with locations in practically every other city in the country, implying that it has multiple branches operating across the country. Each has a standard, but according to HEC, three are the most well-known and best.


UET Peshawar, established in 1952, can indeed be summed up in one word: ‘Research. UET Peshawar, in contrast to the other UET campuses, concentrates primarily on engineering research in a wide range of areas, unlike the other campuses.

It was previously known as the NWFP University of Engineering Technology. It is associated with the PEC and HEC Pakistan. The University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Peshawar contains five research labs that are overseen by the Pakistani Higher Education Commission.

The fact that UET Peshawar is a public engineering university makes it eligible for special research projects. This is a result of the institution’s world-class research-oriented faculty and is one of the primary reasons that UET Peshawar graduate students are one of the most highly prized applicants for engineering research and development projects both on governmental and non – governmental levels.

UET Lahore is one of the historic engineering institutes that present in Pakistan. As per the Higher Education Commission (HEC), it is currently ranked at fifth position, well according to the QS World Ranking, it is ranked 701 out of 10000 academic institutions, whilst the according to the Asia Universities Ranking, it is placed among the best 200 top universities.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (UET) Lahore is a government university in Lahore, which was founded in 1921 as Maclagan Engineering College, after the founder’s father.


The University of Engineering and Technology Taxila (UET Taxila) was established in the remote community of Taxila city in 1975, following the lead of UET Lahore, with the primary intent of giving quality engineering educational services in the less evolved remote regions of the Pothohar territory.

It is no surprise that Taxila, as one of the old civilizations’ capital cities of expertise and architectural style, has played a significant role in the development of the university’s state-of-the-art faculty members and research programs, which has given UET Taxila a unique position within and between public engineering universities around the world.

An institution that became a landmark in its own right. The Pakistan Army runs NUST, a public engineering university. In Rawalpindi, Risalpur and karachi, its sub-campuses are also present.

 what distinguishes NUST from all other top-tier colleges around the country, it is the emphasis on research and development (R&D). NUST’s ranking in the QS Global World University Rankings of the Top 500 Universities is due to this precise reason, and it is continuing to improve its position.
