Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology was founded by the late chancellor, Z.A. Nizami. The university holds a unique reputation for conducting and engaging research in science, energy, and engineering to meet its international standards. Furthermore, the university's admission policy also won praise from the public circles for offering world-class science programmes to the students despite their insufficient number of examination seats required for the admission in the engineering universities of the country. Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology is the only University that offers scholarships to every student who perform well in any semester with a Scholarship grant of 48–54%, which enable many students to perform well continuously in their curriculum years.
