The University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore, has won the recently held inaugural Punjab-wide Final-Year Projects (FYPs) competition sponsored by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC). The competition solicited projects in five engineering disciplines: Civil, Electrical, Geological, Mechanical, and Mining. 35 universities from the province participated in the competition and out of several hundred submitted projects, 173 were selected for display at Faletti’s Hotel, Lahore. A large number of students, academics, CEOs of companies, and engineers visited the displays of student projects. A PEC committee consisting of academics and industry experts evaluated the projects. The UET student projects won first position in four out of five categories-Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Geological Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering-and second position is Mining Engineering. The UET students also won second position in Civil Engineering. “The quality of projects of our students judged by an independent committee of field experts formed by PEC speaks volumes about the quality of undergraduate education at the university,” said Dr Mansoor Sarwar, Vice Chancellor of UET.
