Bannu Campus

Bannu Campus became operational in May 2002, in the premises of the Comprehensive High School in the city. This has brought higher education in engineering sciences to this neglected middle-southern region. Currently, two traditional disciplines in engineering sciences are offered, and efforts are afoot to consolidate these programmes. Large investment in strengthening laboratories, and upgrading infrastructure are being done to quickly bring this campus at par with others.

Two Undergrade programs are offered in UET, Bannu Campus

CIVIL ENGINEERING

The courses of study leading to the Degree of B.sc Civil Engineering have been planned to offer a broad spectrum of civil engineering subjects. The curriculum lays emphasis on subjects of structures, irrigation, geotechnical , transportation engineering, environmental engineering and hydraulics. These courses include laboratory and design work. The prescribed syllabi and examination standards compare favorably with the standard of undergraduate work developed in U.K, USA and Canada.

In addition to course work, the final year students are required to work on project under the guidance of senior faculty members. Study tours and extension lectures are also arranged during the session for the benefit of the students. Second year or third year students during their summer break and final year students after passing the final examination in civil engineering may work with some recognized organizations, registered with PEC or government department or semi government department to acquire practical training of 800 hours for award of degree.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

Department of Electrical Engineering, UET Bannu Campus became operational in May 2002. The department was established to increase access to professional education in the field of Electrical Engineering for the people of southern K.P.K. The mission of the department is to augment the modern education expected of all UET undergraduates, to impart a basic understanding of electrical engineering build on a foundation of physical sciences, mathematics, computing and technology, and to provide the majors in the department with the knowledge of electrical engineering principles along with the required supporting knowledge of mathematics, physics, computing and engineering fundamentals.

The students are provided with an educational foundation that prepares them for leadership roles along diverse career paths in the fields concerned with Electronics, Communications, Energy & Power Systems, and Industrial Control . Presently more than 60 undergraduate students are enrolled annually. The department has produced more than 800 graduate students so far.
