As Pakistan is an agriculture country. After independence we need an institute to provide agriculture awareness. So in 1961 this institute is upgraded for this very particular purpose. This university covers an area of 1950 acres. Currently more than 12000 students are enrolled in this institute. This university is build in the city of Faisalabad because a large number of crops are grown over there. To get enrolled into the PHD programs the GAT test is compulsory which is conducted by NTS.
