| COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY 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 Bahauddin Zakariya 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 for teaching facilities to 1013 students at an annual intake of 243 students (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 started.
