Centre of English Language & Linguistics

Welcome to the official website of the Centre of English Language and Linguistics (CELL) at Mehran UET, Jamshoro. It is my distinct honor to serve as the first female director of CELL. This institution holds a special place in my heart, as it is where I embarked on my professional journey as a lecturer in 2007. Over the years, I have had the privilege of serving in various capacities, culminating in my appointment as director in 2022.

At CELL, our commitment is to deliver excellence, quality education, and unwavering dedication. We strive to prepare our students for promising careers in the English Language Teaching (ELT) community and other related fields. The contributions of our graduates extend to the national economy, social growth, and stability. Over the past decade, we have undergone a transformation, evolving from an English Language service provider to a comprehensive Centre of Language and Linguistics that offers degree programs to fulfill our objectives. We take pride in the growth, both in quantity and quality, of our programs, with our faculty recognized as regional leaders in research.

The successful implementation of our MS and BS in English programs has inspired us to forge ahead, and we are excited to announce the upcoming launch of a PhD program in Applied Linguistics. To foster a vibrant research culture, we provide continuous professional training opportunities through conferences, seminars, and webinars. Our research journal, Repertus, showcases the work of both Pakistani and international researchers. Furthermore, our Language Lab and self-access center offer Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) training.

Recognizing that students are the heart of any institution, we have shaped CELL into a student-centric learning environment. The 'Creative Learning Space-CLS' is a multidimensional self-development plan that offers continuous training sessions on career opportunities and professional development. It serves as a platform for students to forge meaningful connections with industry professionals and alumni. The Mehran Language and Linguistics Society of English-MLLSE, solely run by students, adds vibrancy to our institution. This society fosters creative literary sensibilities and raises awareness about linguistic issues through activities such as producing a literary magazine and organizing student experience sessions and buddy support groups.

Our commitment to integrity drives us as we strive to develop a comprehensive and sustainable research-led Centre of English. My team and I are dedicated to pursuing excellence in academic innovation. I extend a warm welcome to you to join the CELL family. Together, let us create a culture of education, research, collaboration, and partnership.
