UET has designated student counseling centers in the form of Directorate of Financial Aid & Career Services (FA&CS), Directorate of University Advancement and External Linkages (UAEL), and Directorate of Students’ Affairs (DSA) who advise and counsel students regarding academic as well as career matters. UET arranges an Open Day each year for the students who intend to apply for admission in UET to give them an insight of the institute and guide them regarding scope of different degree programs being offered in the university. A formal Induction Ceremony is arranged by the University for the Newly Admitted Students to apprise them about the salient requirements and policies/procedures of the programs. Beside this, an induction ceremony is arranged by the department itself for the students who got admission in B.Sc. Mining Engineering to enlighten them about the scope of the program, its market value and its challenges.

The directorates of FA&CS, UAEL and DSA act as a bridge between UET graduates and employers and donor agencies for scholarships, financial assistance, loans etc. These offices are committed to provide friendly and efficient services to UET students, graduates, employers and scholarship donor agencies.
