In 1975, the Government of the Punjab decided to set up four Engineering Colleges at Taxila, Multan, Faisalabad and Bahawalpur in the same order of priority. In accordance with the decision of the Punjab Cabinet, the first Engineering College initially started functioning at Sahiwal and was later, in 1978, shifted to Taxila as a second campus of the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. Later its status was raised to an independent University of Engineering and Technology. The proposal for the second College of Engineering and Technology at Multan met the approval of the ECNEC in September 1990.
The College of Engineering and Technology was thus established as a Constituent College of the BahauddinZakariya University, Multan. Its broad objective is to produce engineers at undergraduate level with Bachelor’s degree in conventional fields of Civil, Building & Architectural, Electrical, Computer and Mechanical Engineering to meet the engineering and technological manpower requirements of the province/country..
The College offers courses leading to the award of 4-Year engineering degree in Civil, Electrical, Building & Architectural, Computer and Mechanical Engineering. The College envisages to provide teaching facilities to more than 1000 students with intake of more than 250 students per year (in all disciplines of Engineering) after the completion of the project. Due to certain spatial, financial and administrative constraints, the College started Civil Engineering Program in 1994. In 1997, Electrical Engineering Program was started. In 2004 three new disciplines namely Building & Architectural Engineering, Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering were launched..
Seventy acres of land at the campus of the University has been allocated for the construction of various academic and administrative blocks of the College. The plans of the administrative and academic blocks, with adequate space for class rooms and laboratories have been prepared. Purchase of equipment for laboratories and books for library had already been taken in hand. The construction work of the Civil Engineering Department was completed in January, 1998. The construction work of Electrical Engineering Department was completed in January, 2000 and that of Mechanical Engineering Department was completed in May 2007. Moreover, the extension of Civil and Electrical Engineering departments are also completed. The construction of a boys hostel to accommodate 600 students, seven residences for teaching staff and twelve residences of other staff have also been completed..
The University College of Engineering & Technology excels in innovative teaching and research, in developing practical applications and approaches to problems and areas of study, and in preparing professionals and leaders who will have worldwide influence on technologies and societies
