NED University of Engineering and Technology
[NEDians: I need feedback on the color combination. What you see now
is what I remember of the colors originally used for the Point Buses and
all -- Dark Brown and very light brown/orange. Any feedback welcome]
One of the major institutions of higher learning in Pakistan, the NED University
of Engineering and Technology is located in Karachi, the country's biggest
city and main port. And before you ask us, NED stands for Nadirshaw Eduljee
Dinshaw; a Parsi
philanthropist whose benevolence made the then NED College of Engineering
and Techology possible. However, now that NED College has become the NED
University, no one uses the full form of the name and very few even remember
what it was supposed to stand for.
Strictly speaking, the NED University encompasses the main main campus
near the Karachi University in Gulshan-e-Iqbal as well as the Dawood College
of Engineering & Technology and the Pak Air Force's Engineering College
in Risalpur. However, most of the attention here is focused on the main
campus. I am hoping some Dawoodians will hook up with us and make this
On the main campus, we have the departments of Civil Engineering, Mechanical
Engineering and one called Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering.
Metallurgical, Electronics and Chemical Engineering are offered at Dawood
College. (I think there is one more, but I am writing from memory. Will
some Dawoodian please correct me or confirm?) The Architecture program
is at Dawood, too, but behaves for the most part as an independent entity
from the rest of the College. Risalpur is where Pakistan's only curriculum
in Aeronautical Engineering is offered.

a real home for our alma mater on the World Wide Web. So here goes:
