The University of Engineering Science and Technology (UESTP-KTH) Sialkot was to have been established in collaboration with the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology. The Government of Pakistan through Higher Education Commission of Pakistan was financing and building the campus, while the Royal Institute of Technology would have been responsible for technical and human support such as course content, university management, human resource development and quality control. The construction work of this institute was started in 2006. Yearly intake of the students was planned at 1,000 per year, at BS, Masters and PhD levels (including at least 100PhDs). A technology park will also be built adjacent to the University to house technical centres of global Swedish companies, innovative Pak-Swedish companies and incubator centres.

The current status of this university remains unclear. The Swedish Royal Institute of Technology has recently intimated to the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan that it will be unable to provide any faculty for this institute due to the poor security situation in Pakistan and that the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan should arrange faculty for this institute on its own. It has also voiced serious concerns regarding the poor quality of construction of the under-construction campus especially no provision for air-conditioning and extensive damp damage in the under-constructed buildings. Following this, the construction work on the campus has seized with the campus at about 60% completion. The local press has reported that since then due to the absence of a security fence around the under-construction campus, thieves have stolen steel piping, copper wires and aluminium window frames from the under-construction buildings. The Swedish Royal Institute of Technology were also very disappointed that the project director for this university , Mohd. Abbas Chaudhry at the HEC office Islamabad, has not once visited the project site and did not know the GPS coordinates for the proposed campus. Furthermore, the new government in Pakistan has decrided the high cost of this project and have indicated the billions of rupees that will be spent on this project can be better utilized to improve and expand the current engineering universities in Pakistan. The federal education secretary has recommended that this and the other 'foreign' university projects in Pakistan are 'ill-conceived' and be scrapped due to financial and security hardships. With the prospective opening date having passed many months ago in Jan 2008, it is increasing likely that this project will be scrapped.

Launch Postponed

The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm is involved in setting up a new technical university, UESTP-KTH, in the industrial town of Sialkot in northern Pakistan. It was supposed to have been operational by the start of the 2008 academic year, but due to the bad security situation in Pakistan the KTH board has decided to postpone its launch indefinitely.
