Lahore: The recognition and acceptance of degrees awarded by
non-accredited/non-chartered universities and Degree Awarding Institutes (DAIs)
has remained a major issue after establishment of the Higher Education
The HEC, which is authorised to determine equivalence
and to recognise degrees awarded by the chartered universities and institutions,
has been refusing recognition to degrees awarded by all such institutes over the
years. However, the Commission is now faced with a new and more complex
situation pondering as to how to consider the equivalence of higher degree
awarded by charted universities/DAIs after a lower degree from non-chartered
The issue was raised in 17th meeting of the Commission held
at Islamabad recently. The meeting was told that HEC had received many
applications in which the students had sought status/recognition of their higher
degrees awarded by chartered institutions after they got a lower degree from
According to the minutes of the meeting, a
copy of which is available with The News, the Commission had received an
application from Miss Lubna Yasmin Paracha, who obtained her MA in Digital Arts
degree from the University of Arts, London- a chartered university in UK- after
securing BA Fine Arts from Hunerkada College of Visual & Performing Arts,
This institution is non-accredited/non chartered entity and
its degrees are not recognised by the Commission. Another stakeholder Ms Noreen
Fatima had filed a similar application with the Commission seeking clarification
about validity of her MS Degree for an accredited institution earned after MCS
Degree in 2002 from a non-chartered entity.
It is important to mention
here that in past, the HEC had also launched a campaign against
non-accredited/non-chartered universities and DAIs while advertisements in this
connection were also published warning public especially parents of students not
to send their children to such institutes. Undoubtedly, non-accredited and
non-chartered universities and DAIs put future of students at stake, as they not
only waste their precious time but also hard-earned money of their
Academic circles have been expressing concern in this regard
urging the government to keep an eye on non-accredited/non-chartered institutes
so that such institutions might not damage future of the country.
HEC Executive Director Prof Dr Sohail H Naqvi said
it had been decided that the matter regarding equivalence/recognition of degrees
obtained after a lower degree from non-charted institutions would be thoroughly
reviewed in the light of academic requirements and international practices for
dealing with such cases.
He said after review the issue would be placed
before the Commission for a final decision in this
Microelectronics Research Centre starts functioning at PU:
Microelectronic Research Centre, a project of the Higher Education Commission
(HEC) has started functioning at the University of the Punjab, Lahore, said a
press statement issued from the HEC last week.
The HEC provided Rs 38.5
million for the centre. The funds were utilised for the establishment of
classrooms, a computer lab, research labs, electronics workshop etc.
MERC has been established in collaboration with Centre of Excellence in Solid
State Physics (CSSP). The aim of establishment of such a centre was to train
manpower in the field of electronic devices with the help of international
collaborations. The Centre offers MPhil degree in microelectronic engineering
and semiconductor physics (MESP), which is a unique blend of engineering and
This is for the first time in Pakistan that a degree has been
offered in the high-tech industry of microelectronics. By the establishment of
this Centre, the physicists and engineers of the country will be able to get the
opportunity of joining hands to conduct research in the related fields.The
project funding was also utilised for setting up a local area network (LAN) for
MERC & CSSP research students for not only to access the e-literature but
also to perform research modelling and simulations' work.
simulation purposes, programmes such as ANSYS Multiphysics and Origin have also
been purchased from the project funds. It is pertinent to mention here that the
facility of ANSYS Multiphysics provided in the Centre is used worldwide for
construction, analysis, and interpretation of mathematical models of
microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
The facilities of MERC and CSSP
provided at the Centre have been open to all public sector universities through
the HEC's programme 'Access to Scientific Instruments Programme' (ASIP).
Moreover, hundreds of samples have also been characterised for various
universities in the last 2 years or so since the establishment of these
facilities. This Centre is considered an invaluable addition to the existing
resources available for research and training in the fields of Solid state
Electronics. firstname.lastname@example.org (The News)
