The Institute is situated in Multan, a city located in the orbit of world known as Indus civilization and is amongst the few ancient cities of Pakistan. Multan’s history of religious political activities is almost five thousand years old. Multan, once famous for “Sun-worship” in the early centuries of Christian era was introduced to a completely new set of conquerors. The city turned into a great centre of Suhrwardia Silisilah established under the guidance of Sheikh Bahauddin Zakariya.
Exquisite relics of that era are the treasured possessions of The Khanqah (Shrine) of Shah Rukn-e-Aalam, a masterpiece of architecture which became the identity of Multan. During this period, immigrants from various cultural and intellectual centres of central Asia and Iran came to Multan. Today’s city of Multan reflects a complete blend of modern, planned metropolitan systems and old civilization.
The Institute is located on Khanewal Road in close proximity to Pak Arab Fertilizers Ltd., which is one of the biggest chemical process complexes in the country, and provides a strong technical backup to the Institute.
Stretched over a land of 320 canals, NFC-IET is housed in a number of buildings having graceful exterior and elegant interiors with all the necessary amenities for its users. The location of the Institute offers many advantages. Perhaps the most important advantage is the invaluable opportunities it offers for establishing an interaction between industry and Institute.
Mid-Country Oil Refinery is a petrochemical complex established by PARCO and is the biggest employer of IET graduates. The refinery is about 60 kilometres away from Multan and provides opportunity for Internships, Student Training, Industrial Tours etc. and has proved a source of learning and technical collaboration for the students of IET.
