Master plan for BZU Sahiwal sub-campus
Sahiwal: The National Engineering Services of Pakistan
(Private) Limited has approved the master plan for the construction of the
Bahauddin Zakariya University's sub-campus in Sahiwal. The groundbreaking
ceremony is likely to be held in a month's time.
The master plan has been
submitted to the BZU vice-chancellor for final approval and starting the
construction work on the project, learnt on Friday.
will be constructed over 57.97 acres in front of the Government College,
Sahiwal, and will cater to 2,750 master's and undergraduate students in 24
disciplines upon its completion in a three-year time.
sources, the federal government had already approved Rs478.87 million for the
campus construction while the varsity administration was aspiring for another
Rs500 million from the provincial government.
In 2005, the BZU had opened
its sub-campus on the premises of the Government College, Sahiwal, by taking 24
acres under a three-year lease agreement. Initially, as many as 150 students got
admission in three disciplines, MBA, MBA (Executive) and BBA (Honours), and this
development helped many students of Sahiwal and suburbs, especially girls, get
higher education at their doorstep. Prior to this, they had to travel to Multan
or Lahore for this purpose.
"Parents feel comfortable in sending their
girls in institutes of advance learning, preferably in the same city. Had this
sub-campus not existed, I could not have gotten my higher education," Hamna, a
BBA student, said.
Presently, around 570 students are studying at
the sub-campus offering six disciplines, including Master's in Applied
Psychology, English and Economics.
The BZU administration has also
sanctioned a university bus for the sub-campus to pick and drop students,
reducing the travelling problems of many, especially the girls. The new
purpose-built campus will house an academic block, hostels for students and
teachers, swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts.
Besides, it will
have central library, conference hall, computer centre, gymnasium, student
service centre, cricket ground, faculty residences and a cafeteria.
groundbreaking ceremony will be held very soon. I assure the people of Sahiwal
that upon its completion, the sub-campus will emerge as a centre of excellence,"
Project Director Dr Muhammad Saleem Bhutto said. Dawn
