Dean's Message

The School of Engineering (SEN) was set up in April of 2013 with the vision to act as a hub for various engineering disciplines. It provides a common regulatory platform for professional education in the field of engineering aiming to achieve national and international accreditation of degree programs offered under its umbrella. It consists of Department of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Industrial Engineering. These departments offer BS, MS, and PhD Programs accredited/recognized by Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC). SEN offers leading-edge programs to instill design, application and innovation skills in its students by utilizing and involving their curiosity, intelligence and creativity. The mission of the UMT School of Engineering is to give the students a high-quality educational experience; to generate and apply knowledge through research, development and scholarly activity; and to serve society, country and the engineering profession.

While I feel proud to be the Dean of this school, I am also aware of the daunting task of leading it to become the 'Best Engineering School of Pakistan' within the next ten years. However, I shall draw strength out of my 39 years of experience which has seen many new foundations successfully laid and goals achieved. Additionally, the commitment, competency, and devotion of the faculty give me confidence to reach the defined target. My job is to complement these strengths, by enhancing resources and investing in strong faculty and students. At the same time, I am compelled to make sure that everyone in the community is focused on being as good as they can possibly be. You can trust me for support, guidance and an eagerness to involve. Everyone, faculty, staff, students, parents and entrepreneurs (the prospective employers of my students) is important for me.

In today's highly competitive world of higher education, we have to be fast, flexible and well-resourced to continue attracting talented students, faculty and staff. I can foresee that soon our faculty members would be conducting leading-edge research in a wide range of areas including industrial management, environment, energy, electric power, artificial intelligence, building & structures, irrigation, dams, biomedical engineering, robotics, telecommunications and mechatronics. So you are welcome to discuss and share ideas for the development of SEN. I can be reached by telephone, email, or meeting in person.
