It has good infrastructure to support university education of the highest quality. There is a wide variety in the degree programs being conducted at UMT and the programs have been accredited by the relevant national accreditation councils.

 

The quality of education is further enhanced through engagement of faculty and students in research and development work. As a result, UMT faculty and students present their research work in national and international conferences and publish their original research in national and international journals.

UMT is already publishing sixteen (16) journals and the number is increasing steadily.

With its impressive credentials, UMT has been assessed by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) University Rankings to be among the Top Universities of Asia. Our alumni would be very pleased to know that in the QS Ranking of Asian Universities for year 2019, UMT entered the elite class of top 500 universities of Asia. There were only 23 Pakistani universities in the distinguished list and only 5 of them, including UMT, were private universities. In the year 2020, twenty-nine (29) Pakistani universities made it to the distinguished list. However, the list included only 8 private institutions with UMT being one of them. Recently, the Times Higher Education (THE) has placed UMT in 401 600 group of universities in its global THE Impact Rankings for year 2020.

Outbreak of COVID-19 put UMT to a new test of continuing the classes through online mode of teaching. UMT faculty, staff and management were able to offer online classes without losing a single day. UMT also achieved an Online Readiness Score 0f 100% on HEC's Dashboard.

At UMT, special attention is paid to grooming and character building of students through a wide variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. There are more than 60 clubs and societies to facilitate intellectual, artistic, social, cultural, religious, re creational and sports activities at UMT.

Every effort is being made to prepare our graduates well for a highly successful professional and personal life. With the feedback and support from our alumni, we hope to enhance the quality of higher education at UMT even further.
