The field of Civil Engineering Technology and its allied infrastructure industry has been the trademark of Pakistan’s finance from last many years. It is the largest employment sector and earns the highest amount of foreign reserve. Being the largest industrial sector, it needs a huge workforce with prominent level of skills. The Department of Civil Engineering Technology is established to engage the brightest students of the country and equip them with all skills necessary to manage the civil and urban infrastructure industry.

The Department of Civil Engineering Technology is distinguished from other institutes in several ways. It has state of the art labs related to designing, manufacturing and testing of all kinds of building materials as well as road materials and other infrastructural entities. It is offering a degree in Civil Engineering Technology which is more focused on hands-on experience. Civil Engineering Technology program has a staunch emphasis on more practical contents than theory. Continuous industrial visits, internships and projects will make the graduates more suitable for modern Civil Engineering Technology requirements.
