At UET, Peshawar we recognize the singular importance of research, and hence are playing a vital role in R&D since 1990. Presently research activities are revolving around the areas including mechanical design, design of earthquake-resisting structures, mining techniques, processing of low grade industrial minerals and metalic ores, environmental management, water resources management and application of computers in engineering.
With a modest beginning in 1952 as a “constituent” college of Peshawar University, the UET was born in 1980. Since then, three satellite campuses in Abbottabad, Bannu and Mardan have been established. However, Peshawar Campus remains the central nucleus of the University, keeping everything moving along the correct path.
