Before 2007, Dawood College of Engineering functioned as an affiliated institute, initially with University of Karachi, then NED University of Engineering and Technology and then with Mehran University of Engineering and Technology. After this period, the decision was made by the government to upgrade the college to an autonomous institution and as a a result the College was granted a Degree-Awarding status by a Presidential Ordinance on 31 October 2007.

After becoming a Degree Awarding Institution, the campus was expanded and new floors and buildings were added to accommodate new Departments and Laboratories. The existing 750-seat Auditorium was completely renovated. Currently the Cafeteria is being renovated and an Elevator is being planned to be installed in the main block.
