By starting Department of Medical Lab Technology under Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences, MUST has entered into progressive academic plans. COVID-19 pandemics has evolved new opportunities and challenges globally; out of which reliability of diagnostics is the primary subject. Under such circumstances, I am feeling blessed and honored to be part of such future planned civic engagement departments and leading as the pioneer Chairperson of Department of Medical Lab Technology. As being an educationist, I am always determined to make competent and transparent administration.

The field of laboratory testing will be developed with the appearance of sophisticated automated analytical instruments; laboratory scientists will find themselves in the role of making decisions about the validity of data to be used by physicians in medical decisions. It is estimated that 70-80% of a physician’s medical decisions on any patient will be a direct result of laboratory test data in near future. I welcome students and wish them a satisfying, safe and beneficial stay at Mirpur university of Science and Technology and beautiful city of Mirpur.

BS-Medical Lab Technology (MLT)

Medical Lab Technology is a biology/chemistry-based bachelor’s degree that prepares students for exciting, challenging and dynamic careers in places such as hospital labs and clinics, forensic labs, veterinary clinics, industrial research labs and molecular biotechnology labs. Professionals in this field analyze blood, urine, tissue, and other body specimens. These test results play an important role in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Laboratory scientists are in high demand. And with future growth predicted to be above average for all professions, laboratory science provides solid job security.

Program Vision

“Better health through state of the art diagnostics”

 Program Mission

To provide quality didactic and latest scientific technology based approaches for establishing

affective domains of learning at graduate level. MUST seek professional development that have the best of both worlds i.e. medicine and science. Exposure of operating complex electronic equipment, precision instruments and be trained to identify various pathogens and human cells using microscopes and a battery of scientific methods will enable physicians to rely over their knowledge and skills in areas of scientific exploration including immunology, microbiology, hematology, chemistry and transfusion medicine.

Degree Requirements:

F.Sc. (Pre-medical) or equivalent with 60% minimum marks
