DUET Vice Chancellor Dr Faizullah Abbasi said the varsity was one of the best engineering universities in the country.

He pointed out that the varsity started Master Programmes two years ago and the first batch was awarded degrees in the convocation.

Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, adviser to Sindh chief minister on universities and boards and pro vice chancellor of the varsity, said that the provincial government was committed to promote higher education in the province.
