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.[2] History & Progress 

Information Management

The University has an infrastructure to support wide spread internet as well as intranet setup that covers its main and remote campuses. After completion of the on-going project of the University computerization, majority of administrative and academic activities will also be managed through online system.
  • UET Peshawar has Five campuses. The main campus is in the University Campus area, off University Road, Peshawar, with Four satellite campuses in Kohat, Abbottabad, Bannu and Mardan. The Peshawar campus is the nucleus of the University.

Earthquake Response

The Earthquake Engineering Center in the Civil Engineering department played key role after the October 8, 2005 earthquake. UET Peshawar places a major emphasis on preparing for earthquakes. The university has held seminars on disaster preparedness, first aid trainings for mining engineers, and research into earthquake preparedness.The University worked closely with the Swiss Humanitarian Aid organization on constructing health care facilities in the wake of the 2005 earthquake. As stated by Ali Yad Khan, a representative of SHA, "Involving Peshawar University of Engineering and Technology meant the health centre concept could be developed quickly. And account was taken of local requirements and of international earthquake-resistant building standards from the word ‘go’."[3] Earthquake Response
