Our Mission

The Program in Faculty Development at University of Engineering and technology Taxila UETT aims to maintain the quality education that recognizes and supports the faculty in their role as educators and knowledge creators. The university strives to provide faculty educators with the knowledge and skills to best teach our Engineering students in the classroom and outside. The array of programming provides both seasoned and novice educators with the tools they need to instruct, guide, train, facilitate and mentor. The ultimate goal of the Program is to enhance student learning and thus impact the quality of knowledge.

The program also seeks to provide faculty with a community of educators with, and from whom they can learn. To achieve this, the internal resources are utilized in the form of our talented faculty educators who share their expertise in terms of problem solving skills with their peers, and provide a central infrastructure for faculty development across the various domains of engineering departments. Additionally, the qualified professionals outside the university from various fields are also invited regularly to impart their experience, skills, and knowledge to faculty.
