Frequently Asked Questions

There are two main semesters: Fall and Spring. A reduced variety of courses is also offered during the summer.
Semester, trimester or quarter-based academic calendars are generally followed by universities all over the world. We have adopted a semester-based approach as we believe that it is the best for our students. HEC and Government of the Punjab recommend the same and many of the top universities of the world follow this approach as well.
Our degree is recognized by the HEC and our graduates are currently enrolled in dozens of private (e.g. LUMS) and public-sector (e.g. PU) universities in Pakistan, Malaysia, South Korea, UK, USA, and many other countries.
A number of students who apply for admission do so before receiving the final results of a qualification that is the entrance requirement. Such students are offered admission on the basis of their previous academic record, admission test, and/or interview. Such offers are, however, provisional, subject to meeting the minimum admission requirements. Students admitted on a provisional-basis are required to submit their final results as soon as they are announced, failing which their offers of admission stand withdrawn.
Result-awaiting students are admitted on a provisional-basis only. In case, they fail to achieve the required marks when their results are declared, their registration is frozen immediately. They are not allowed to continue in that semester, but the fees that they have paid for that semester can be transferred to the next one in case they obtain the required marks in the supplementary examination.
Yes, those having studied a combination of Physics, Mathematics and Computer Studies or Computer Science are eligible for admission in the above mentioned programs. They will, however, be required to take an additional 4 credit-hour course.
A candidate who has passed Diploma of Associate Engineer (DAE) examination, securing at least 60% aggregate marks, shall be eligible for admission against seats in the same discipline of engineering in which he or she has passed the Diploma examination.
The BS Electrical Engineering (Telecom and Electronic) program being offered by UMT is accredited from Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) where as BS Industrial Engineering has been permitted by Pakistan Engineering Council. It is worth mentioning that PEC is the premier institution and accrediting body that regulates the engineering profession in the country and maintains realistic internationally relevant standards of professional competence and ethics for engineers.
We currently offer lab-based courses in Chemistry, Physics, Electronics, Digital Logic, Microprocessors, Computer Networks, Software Usability, Textile Wet Processing, Knitting and Weaving. More laboratories (e.g. electric machines lab) have been planned and will go into operation in the near future. Most courses require students to do computer-based work. UMT's computer network consists of more than 1300 nodes with a band-width of 8 MB. Wireless connectivity is also available. UMT has fully equipped telecom labs for the use of its students.
At UMT, students are not only trained to exhibit their full potential, they are also provided with an array of services for facilitating their career planning and job placement. These services range from career seminars to mock interviews to internships to job fairs. These services remain available to the students even after they have graduated. UMT offers skill-development workshops and knowledge enhancing seminars to the alumni as well.
UMT received her charter first as the Institute of Management and Technology in 2002 through an Act of the Assembly of the Punjab . Later, on 16 June 2004, it became University of Management and Technology through the passing of a similar Act.
UMT has been awarded “W” Category by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan.
One-credit hour stands for 15 contact-hours for a lecture course or 45 contact-hours for a laboratory course. The total duration of a semester is 17 weeks and that of a summer session is 9. Many top universities follow schemes similar to this one. Government of the Punjab and HEC has adopted similar definitions for a semester credit-hour as well. As far as the credit-hours for individual courses are concerned, they vary even within UMT. Although most of them carry 3 credit-hours, those with 1, 2 and 6 also exist. Same is true for many other universities.
The MS programs have been designed according to the guidelines provided by the HEC. Out of those two years, a full-time student generally spends most of his/her first year taking courses, and a major part of the second on MS thesis.
PEC currently does not accredit MS/PhD Engineering programs. Therefore, none of the MS/PhD programs offered by Pakistani institutions (including those by UET, NUST, etc.) have been accredited by PEC. However UMT MS/PHD Engineering Programs are recognized by HEC.
Overseas universities generally accept credits from all Pakistani universities that are recognized by the HEC.
When a student from overseas (or other universities in Pakistan) applies for transfer-of-credit to UMT, we look at the courses that the candidate has taken and accept for transfer only those that are similar to ours and the candidate has received a B or a higher grade in them. Many universities in Pakistan and overseas follow a similar policy.
Minimum 50% marks in FSc /Intermediate are required to apply
There is no such accreditation needed by PMDC for School of Health Sciences
