Founded in 1921 in Mughalpura, a suburban area of Lahore, as Mughalpura Technical College, it later became the ‘MacLagan Engineering College’, a name given to it in 1923 when Sir Edward Douglas MacLagan, the then Governor of the Punjab who laid the foundation stone of the main building, now called the Main Block. In 1932, it was affiliated with University of the Punjab for the award of Bachelor’s Degrees in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. In 1939, the name was again changed to Punjab College of Engineering and Technology, and Civil Engineering degree was also started in the college. At the time of partition, part of the college relocated to India, called East Punjab College of Engineering. In 1954, a bachelor’s degree program in mining engineering was started. In 1962, it was granted charter and was named the West Pakistan University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. During the 1960s, bachelor’s degree programs were started in chemical engineering, petroleum and gas engineering, metallurgical engineering, architecture and city and regional planning. In 1972, it was officially renamed the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. By the 1970s, it had established over a score of master’s degree programs in engineering, architecture, city and regional planning and allied disciplines. Several Ph.D. degree programs were also started. A second campus of the university was established in 1975 in Sahiwal which was relocated in Taxila in 1978 and became an independent university in 1993 called University of Engineering and Technology, Taxila. Today, it is widely considered one of the best and most prestigious engineering university of Pakistan where more than 50,000 students apply for admission every year. The university, as of 2016, has a faculty of 881 people with 257 with doctorates. It has a total of 9,385 undergraduate and 1,708 postgraduate students studying. It has a strong collaboration with University of South Carolina, University of Manchester and the Queen Mary University of London and has conducted research funded by Huawei, Cavium Networks, Microsoft and MontaVista. It is one of the highest ranked universities in Pakistan with domestic rankings placing it as the fifth best engineering school in Pakistan while QS World University Ranking putting U.E.T as 701st in the world every year between 2013 and 2016. It is also ranked as #701 in world by the same publication in 2018.In 2018 QS rankings university observed downgrading from 701 to among 801–1000 ranked slot. Meanwhile, in Asia university ranking is currently being ranked at No. 200 and in worldwide university ranking is 701.
