10 reasons why NED University stands out!
Posted On Monday, 05th September 2011 | Comments
Functioning since 1922, the NED University has achieved all the accolades that any institution can aim to achieve. It is glued to its commitment of promoting excellence since day one. Some of the reasons why it outshines other UETs in the race are:
NED University of Engineering and technology is the oldest institution now in Pakistan for teaching and turning out Graduate Engineers; its graduates are scattered throughout the globe serving different parts of the world. It has got the dignified reputation nationally as well as internationally. You, for sure, would experience the league of greatness once you make it here.
#2 Choice matters
With its current enrolment of more than 6000 students, NED University offers bachelor’s degree programmes in 21 departments of engineering disciplines along with one each in Architecture and in Information Technology. That makes the 23 departments in total. The University remains up-to-date with the industrial developments and the new lines of engineering are introduced with respect to the demands of industry. The recent ones that have gotten introduced are Food Engineering and Construction Engineering. Whoa! 23 branches to choose from, this is the highest in Pakistan and it is of great convenience to the students who can soar up in the sky by selecting THEIR type!
#3 Safety and the “no-party” hold
Unlike the other government Universities, this Engineering University works solely on its rules and regulations. Involvement in any political/ethnic/religious disputes within University premises is strictly prohibited and there is a zero percent hold of any political party in the institution which is a pretty astounding scenario if traditional government universities are to be kept in the view point. Moreover, the NED University is armed with abundant security officers dispersed all around the varsity to maintain the safety at all times.
#4 The majestic edifices
As the catalogue goes on, there are three campuses of NED University situated at different places in Karachi namely the Main campus, the City campus and the LEJ campus. The edifices of the various departments at NED are not just ordinary brick-and-mortar buildings but they are brilliantly constructed, well-maintained structures. The main campus is tremendously huge and comprises some of the most impressive facades.
#5 Creative ambiance
No wonder this place would give you a life-time makeover. In NEDUET, you are bombarded with lashings of events during the term. The events range from being project exhibitions, workshops, games and quiz competitions to festivals and even life-changing symposiums. There exist tons of student organizations who keep the students buzzed in co-curricular activities throughout the span of professional studies. Once you step inside this institution as a student, it’s certain that you are not going to pass out as a worthless graduate. Even if engineering was your weak point, then one thing is indisputable. You will be walking out of NED as a professional event manager, content writer, public speaker, athlete etc. and the list goes on and on.
#6 The “All-in-one” Platter
The institution possesses all the facilities that the students need to have a reach to.
The Central Library with over 95,000 books, Mosque, Gymnasium, Seminar Libraries, Digital Library, Outdoor sports facilities and half a dozen of Student Cafeterias are just some of the facilities available here. The NED University has also its own internet facility along with its own internal Network so that all students can access it from their own departments. You would absolutely not miss “ANY” thing when you are in the university premises.
#7 Non-partisan ‘Youth Activism’
Over the years, NEDUET has become the hub of non-profit, non-partisan student activism. Everyone in Karachi is in awe over the activity and participation of NEDians in every social problem. We came out for the HEC dissolution issue; court gave a stay order on it. We came out for the girl who died by the KU point, pedestrian bridges were installed in front of both KU and NED ASAP! NED students are the first to come out and raise their voice, and the awareness on the issues that need to be brought out and given the much-needed attention to.
#8 Post-University association
If you think that your association with NED will last only for the four years you were enrolled here, then think again!
NEDUET owns stiff Alumni Associations that have been developing over the period of years. They serve as a forum to facilitate and enable the best interests and traditions of NED University and its alumni worldwide. The most renowned of them is NED Alumni Association of Southern California (NEDAASC) which is working actively to realize the dream of a better NED. Associations hold and promote competitions at the University level and have launched scholarship programs for the meritorious and needy students.
One highlight of NED which is a vantage in itself is its location in Karachi the downtown of business, trade and engineering in Pakistan. There is absolutely no hustle and bustle to be experienced by the students in their job or internship placements as they can find the most perfect opportunities all there at the very ease in their hometown.
#10 Humblest fee structure
The fee structure of this varsity remains an exemplar itself. 23 departments, high quality academics, top-notch events and most importantly the “B.E” Degree, all of this and much more in such a meager amount which is surely to leave your parents stress free. Plus, meritorious students are given scholarships too to encourage them for the outstanding academic performances over and over again. It just can’t get any better than this, can it!?
