Consulting projects and other assignments are otien secured on a referral basis from the industry and government agencies. We are the preferred technical partners in noise & vibration for GLCs, MNCs and industry leaders in oil & gas, power generation, infrastructure development and construction.
Our design and investigations are supported by extensive and comprehensive use of computer modeling and analysis. We put into practice our strong belief that there must be an engineering basis for design and problem solving ‐ so that key features and/or root causes could be identified for cost effective solutions and remedial solutions could be developed. The formulation of such solutions and design options can only be undertaken when supported by comprehensive measurements, analytical and computational analysis.[detail] -->

The University of Peshawar, as a mother educational institution of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is an outcome of the dream of the father of the nation and was created as the first ever University after independence. It is vigorously working with its full zeal and spirit, truly serving and sacred cause of education altogether. The University of Peshawar founded in 1950, is the fulfillment of a dream, which had long remained unrealized.
The first seeds of the University may be said to have been sown by Sir Sahibzada Abdul Qayyum Khan, who boldly conceived the idea and founded Islamia College - (The Dar-ul-ulum Islamia) in 1913 at the first out-post of civilization, almost at the mouth of the historic Khyber Pass. The founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, who perhaps saw the strategic role of Peshawar in his mind, on April the 12th, 1948, while addressing the students and teachers of the Islamia Collage Peshawar
The University of Peshawar, being a mother Institution of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is not only catering for the academic needs of Peshawar but also of the whole province and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). The highly qualified and trained faculty, student friendly and supportive administration, modern curricula, conductive academic environment and excellent infrastructure are the hallmarks of the University. Its role in political, industrial and government leadership is recognized. The University has an over whelming contribution in bringing positive changes in the society.
The Institute of Catastrophe Risk Management (ICRM) was officially launched on 21 January 2010 and aims to be the first multi-disciplinary and leading catastrophe risk management research institute of its kind in Asia. ICRM has its focus on Asia because Asia has traditionally suffered the most in terms of human fatalities and economic loss from natural catastrophes, while being the least prepared region of the world to mitigate such risks.
The Institute aims to help the regional and international communities to better understand the characteristics of risks related to natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, typhoons, floods, droughts, as well as non-traditional risks which may include infectious diseases and terrorism.
Through ICRM, NTU faculty and researchers will work on integrated risk assessment and management of natural hazards as well as man-made threats. Such work will be conducted in collaboration with research organisations worldwide in the risk management domain as well as insurers, reinsurers and risk modellers from the finance and (re)insurance industries and associations. ICRM aims to develop Asian catastrophe risk models and to build up industry benchmarks and indices which reflect the uniqueness of Asian catastrophe risks.
ICRM is envisioned to be a key player in Singapore's effort to further strengthen its position as a major international finance hub, especially in the (re)insurance areas. The models and tools developed by ICRM will allow governments, public organisations and the industry to analyse potential losses, and so develop risk-management strategies.
Decision-makers in Asia in particular will be able to utilise such tools to identify vulnerabilities, prepare for a range of possibilities and allocate resources. ICRM will undertake the state-of-the-art multi-disciplinary research work which leads to better understanding, communicating and managing of major disasters, both natural and non-traditional, and thereby provides major positive impacts on the society.[detail] -->
