FBISE's HSSC exams | NUST Convocation

FBISE's HSSC exams from May 13
Islamabad, May 06, 2008: Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) will hold annual examination of Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC) from May 13. Controller Examination Muzaffar ul Hasan said Monday that roll number slips of regular candidates have been sent to their respective institutions. While those of private, the controller added, have been dispatched at the address given in their admission forms. In case, he said, the roll number slip was not received by a candidate up to May 7, he or she could contact on 051-9250612, 051-925060, 051-9250619, 051-9250641 and 051-9250651.

Islamabad: It is heartening to see that NUST has emerged as pioneer in all sciences, be it engineering, IT or business administration, producing so many female engineers, which is a good combination of gender mix.

This was stated by Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani while speaking as the chief guest at the 14th undergraduate convocation of the College of EME, National University of Science & Technology (NUST) here Monday.

He further said that NUST has been nurturing young engineers to be professionally and ethically sound, ensuring to instil in them the spirit of teamwork and cooperative attitude. The prime minister announced a four-point agenda for the development of science and technology (S&T) and promotion of knowledge-based economy with an objective to accelerate the pace of economic growth. "The government intends to review the policy on S&T with an objective of betterment of masses and speeding up economic activities to generate more job opportunities for young people," he said. He said under this agenda, the existing system of S&T institutions besides higher education would be strengthened with laying greater emphasis on promoting quality research.

The prime minister said the top most priority of the government would be to strengthen the existing institutions involved in research and development (R&D) activities both in public and private sectors.

"Emphasis will be laid on quality research with required strategic and financial support together with overall improvement in the environment for R&D activities," he added. Gilani said that capacity building of manpower in research development centres would be conducted with an emphasis on improving qualitative research. "Such research will be undertaken in universities and other public and private sector institutions as well as international agencies of repute," he added.

He said the establishment of strong linkages with private sector would be made with an aim to ensure prompt transfer of R&D recommendations for value addition in the manufacturing sector. "To this effect, bilateral and multilateral agreements with foreign countries will be effected for technology commensurate with our national economic requirements," he added.

Rector NUST Lieutenant-General Mohammad Asghar while speaking on the occasion said that universities create knowledge and help create wealth. The College of EME is one of the oldest constituent colleges of NUST. The university has become one of the top 500 universities in the world. Its laboratories have been updated by spending 26 million dollars by Islamic Development Bank. About 200 students are studying abroad for their PhDs and about 100 will return home this year.

Earlier, a welcome address was given by Major-General Najeeb Tariq, Commandent College of EME. He said the College of EME (NUST) enjoys international recognition and reputation for imparting quality education. Besides offering bachelors degrees, the college also offers masters and PhD degree programmes in Electrical, Mechanical, Computer Systems, Software and Mechatronics Engineering. He appreciated the support of NUST, HEC and Ministry of Science & Technology to sponsor 35 projects of the university.

Later, a batch of 218 engineers were conferred upon degrees under which 55 were from Mechanical Engineering, 52 from Computer Engineering, 54 were from Mechatronics Engineering and 57 were from Electrical Engineering. Outstanding students were awarded gold medals. The News

Madrassa affiliation with AIOU
Islamabad: The Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) have been offering the affiliation of Dars-e-Nizami Courses offered at religious seminaries since 2000 but due to lack of coordination within the system the ratio of beneficiaries have been very low.

The course of Shahada-Al-Almia being offered at madrasas is equivalent to MA and the Higher Education Commission (HEC) has also recognised this degree but other courses including Sanvia Aama, Sanvia Khasa and Shahadat-ul-Al-Almia equalivent to Matric, FA and BA respectively are not recognised degrees.

The madrasa students are asked to give Matric, Intermediate and BA examination afresh to get recognised degrees from boards to get jobs.

"But if the students of religious seminaries would give just the papers of English, Urdu and Pakistan Studies through the university they don't need to give the examination of all the subjects and they would get degrees equivalent to Matric, FA and BA" informed the Dean Faculty of Arabic and Islamiat at AIOU, Muhammad Baqir Khan.

Mufti Gulzar Ahmad Naeemi of Jamia Naeemia G-9/3 said "our students from this year have given their examination as private candidates through Federal Board so that they could get recognized degrees despite that they have been also studying Dars-e- Nizami courses at madrasas".

He said the students spend their precious time energies in completing theses courses but due to non-affiliation of theses degrees with the Examination Boards their degrees are not acknowledged. And the students cannot apply for the government as well as private jobs.The Nation

Academicians concerned at mushrooming of general universities
Peshawar: The mushrooming of public sector general universities in the underdeveloped Frontier province has invited serious concern of senior academicians, who say the government as well as Higher Education Commission should strengthen the postgraduate colleges instead of opening university every here and there.

"In principle it is right to set up more and more universities in the province. But I think it would affect the standard of education in our province, where qualified manpower is already short," said Prof Dr Javed Khan, a senior faculty member of the University of Peshawar.

He was of the opinion that there was a shortage of properly qualified faculty in several departments of the University of Peshawar - the largest and oldest public sector general varsity of the province - wherefrom qualified teachers would be arranged at the remote districts?

"I personally think that more focus should be on strengthening the graduate and

postgraduate colleges. The degree colleges could be converted to degree awarding institutes for promotion of quality education," Prof Dr Javed added.

President of Federation of All Pakistan University Academic Staff Association Dr Arbab Khan Afridi, when contacted, said it was not a good trend. The government should strengthen the already established universities before going ahead with more universities. He said more universities would help nothing except increasing the non-development expenditures and burden the national exchequer. "The administrative charges on one university exceed an amount of Rs8 million per month. This amount could be better utilised on uplift projects in education sector," he said.

Dr Arbab, who is also president of Peshawar University Teachers Association (PUTA), said they had also opposed the establishment of Islamia College University (ICU) adjacent to the University of Peshawar. The same could have been set up at Charsadda, Mardan or Swabi, where spacious pieces of land owned by the historic Islamia College were laying unutilised. But the government was adamant on converting the ICP into a university, he said.

Dr Javed Khan, who has been serving as acting vice-chancellor of UoP for the last eight months, however said that the faculty of ICP should have opposed the idea of Islamia College University right in the beginning. But now as an ordinance for establishment of ICU has been promulgated, the governor should appoint a vice-chancellor for it at the earliest.

Four public sector general universities - University of Peshawar, Gomal University, DI Khan, Hazara University Mansehra and Malakand University, Chakdara, Dir Lower - are presently operating in the province.

Two universities for science and technology - Kohat University for Science and Technology and Bannu University for Science and Technology - are also functioning in the public sector. Besides, the NWFP has got one each university in medical, engineering and agriculture profession - Khyber Medical University, NWFP University of Engineering and Technology and NWFP Agricultural University.

The government recently upgraded Islamia College Peshawar to university level. NWFP Chief Minister Ameer Haider Hoti, who hails from Mardan, has also announced establishment of a general university in his hometown. The same was also promised by Federal Minister for Population Welfare Khwaja Mohammad Khan Hoti during his election campaign. It is also learnt that Jahanzeb College Mingora is also being converted into a university. The News
