Top 25 Cheapest US Engineering Universities for Pakistani Students
For decades, those in Pakistan who wanted to get their education from any respectable university in the U.S. had only one choice – pay hundreds and thousands of dollars from their own pocket to get a decent degree and education. However, in recent years, the Fulbright scholarship program and other scholarships for the U.S. has made it possible for students from Pakistan to pursue their higher education from good universities abroad. However despite such a huge number of scholarships available to Pakistani students for the U.S. there is still a large number of students who are unable to study on any form of financial aid. For such students it is always favorable to get a top-rated education without spending loads of cash on expensive institutes.
This post is exactly for such students who are unable to study on a scholarship but can spend relatively lesser sums of money to get a decent level of education from the U.S. Therefore, I have compiled a list of top 25 engineering universities in the U.S. that are the cheapest but the best to study at for students from Pakistan.

While applying at these programs, the admissions committees will consider many factors during your evaluation: the GRE score, past academic performance, and letters of recommendation from faculty and bosses. All of these factors weigh a lot during the application process and you must make sure you spend a lot of time and effort on each one of these.
Note that graduate studies at any US institution requires immense dedication and hard work. The duration of graduate studies (MA & MS) requires one to spend any where from one to three years at school. Whereas a PhD. will require a lot longer – from 4 to 8 years of education depending on your field of study. This is a one time big investment not only of money but of time as well. Therefore you must do a lot of research before you land into a school which is most suited to your needs and wants. Good luck!
