Research Projects

UET Peshawar is the pioneer University in establishing the Office of Research Innovation & Commercialization (ORIC) i.e. on 3rd September 2012. This office is focused on transforming pure knowledge into products and services for community welfare. Its main role is to strengthen University's research and knowledge creation process by providing strategic and operational support through promoting entrepreneurship, technology-transfer and commercialization activities to energize local and national economy. It also aims at strengthening University-Industry relationships by enhancing cross-cutting and multi-disciplinary research initiatives for the up-gradation of local and national industries. In general it aspires to achieve sustainable development by translation of research into public benefit through ensuring research relevance in terms of social, economic and environmental aspects.

Research Collaborations/Linkages established:
ORIC UET Peshawar facilitated the research Projects with the following organizations / institutions in 2005-19:
