University Institute of Engineering and Technology (UIET)[2] is an engineering and management institute of Panjab University,[3] Chandigarh, India offering undergraduate (BE), postgraduate (Dual Degree BEMBA, M.Tech degree) as well as doctoral courses. The institute is granted funds from the central government to improve its infrastructure and facilities.[4] UIET has interactions and Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with industry and academia like Infosys (Campus Connect Program), IBM, IMTECH, and Bharti Group (Bharti Chair for research). The institute has a memorandum signed with the University of Western Australia.[5]


UIET is in the southern campus of Panjab University, Sector 25, Chandigarh[6] with lush greenery. It has two academic blocks which include labs, offices, library, and lecture halls. There are blocks for mechanical labs and workshops. There is an ATM. Wi-Fi and Internet access is provided in some parts of the campus. Students are from all over the nation: few are day scholars and many live in hostels which provide accommodation, food, washrooms, and sporting facilities.


UIET offers four-year Bachelor of Engineering (BE) courses and five-year integrated BE/Master of Business Administration (MBA) courses in Biotechnology, Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical & Electronics Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Information Technology, and Mechanical Engineering. Master of Engineering (ME) courses are offered in the same areas except Electrical & Electronics Engineering. UIET offers full-time Ph.D courses in all discipline of engineering.[7]

Admissions to undergraduate courses are made through the JEE (Main) rank.[8] Admissions to Master of Engineering courses are made through the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) examinations. Admissions to Ph.D. courses are made through the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) examinations and University Ph.D. Entrance Test.
