Academic research in all areas extends the frontiers of human knowledge. The fundamental process of discovery provides us with a deeper understanding of the world and its cultural, social, natural and engineered systems. The University of Faisalabad’s Office of Research provides programs and services to support faculty and staff in their research efforts. The office invests in research initiatives, promotes our research among sponsors, and provides services that make certain that TUF achieves the highest standards in international research.

  • Provide a sound and supportive research infrastructure

Message of Director

In 2011, HEC decided to establish Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC) in each of its affiliated university to streamline research activities and establish Academia-Industry linkages. ORIC was established in The University of Faisalabad (TUF) in 2014. Since its inception many research proposals have been initiated in both campuses. Additionally awareness seminars, conferences and meetings between university academia and industrials have been arranged under its umbrella. We are confident that ORIC, TUF will continue to progress towards its goals.

Prof. Dr. Najeeb Haider
Director ORIC
