The history of faculty

The Engineering faculty was founded in Peshawar, Pakistan, in 1987 by help of some of the professors and continued its activities in the field of the spreading of engineering knowledge until 1992. Then this faculty was transferred to the city of Herat in the first years of the Mujahedeen victory and was covered by the IRC Institute and the CHA Institute and continued its work in the field of technology and engineering for enthusiasts in Herat. The activities of this faculty continued unofficially and beyond the framework of the Ministry of Higher Education by the year 2002, and that year the faculty officially joined the University of Herat and was covered by the Ministry of Higher Education of Afghanistan.

Academic members: at present, Engineering Faculty has twenty-five faculty members in four departments with doctoral, master’s and bachelor’s degrees.
