Top Engineering Universities in Pakistan

Thousands of student travel foreign for the purpose of education as they think the standard of education is not exceptional in Pakistan. The literacy rate is more than 58% in Pakistan, hundreds of children are compelled to work in their childhood due to poverty and most alarming situation is that this rate is increasing rapidly with the time. It is might be true that the performance of some institutions is not good at all but Pakistan is doing excellent job in the field of engineering institutions. Engineering universities in Pakistan are providing quality education to students and these students after completion of their education are warmly welcomed in foreign. Lots of high paying job opportunities are opened for Pakistani engineers and doctors in foreign countries due to their tremendous professional knowledge and experience. There are numerous government and private engineering universities in Pakistan that are providing engineering knowledge, however Higher Education Commission (HEC) has given priority to some institutions due to their brilliant, standardized educational based knowledge and excellent study environment. The top engineering universities in Pakistan are mentioned below:-
