UET varsity sub-campuses fail to meet student needs
Peshawar: The sub-campuses of the NWFP University of Engineering and Technology
could not redress concerns of the parents, teachers and academicians, who say
that the varsity administration has failed in overcoming urgent problems of the
students at the three campuses even after five years of their
In order to meet the increasing demand of more
institutions for engineering students and to lessen the burden on the NWFP UET
Peshawar, the idea of establishment of sub-campuses at various parts of the
province was floated and such campuses were set up at Mardan, Abbottabad and
Bannu in 2002, where engineering courses were made available in a few
Now another mega project - Jalozai Campus of the UET - worth
Rs8 billion is underway near Peshawar. Students, their parents and academicians
have opposed the idea of sub-campuses, saying "why sub-campuses and why not
"The NWFP UET administration wants to
maintain its hold over all the engineering institutions, that's why
establishment of full-fledged universities is deliberately discouraged," said a
He said he was opposed to the very idea of
sub-campuses, but it could be accepted as a temporary arrangement till
establishment of autonomous universities.
An official of the Engineering
University, however, opined that setting up a full-fledged university was not an
easy task directly. These institutions were set up initially to overcome the
increasing demand of the masses for more institutions in applied sciences and

However, none of the three sub-campuses - Abbottabad, Mardan and
Bannu - are being up-graded to the university level. There is, on the other
hand, a possibility of closure of some of them.
According to the sources,
the Bannu campus came under discussion at a high-level meeting where complaints
were raised about the lack of faculty in the said campus.
representatives attending the meeting, the sources said, asked the university
administration, if they could not arrange faculty for the campus, then close it
down, rent out its building and furnish its laboratory equipment to other
institutions, the sources said.
Established in May 2002, Bannu Campus has
been imparting engineering education in electrical and civil disciplines with 50
students enrolled in each department in every batch.
A senior faculty
member confirmed that the problem of faculty existed, as the teachers of the
university were reluctant to go to Bannu campus.
The Mardan campus is
also having same problems.
The students of the said campus have
repeatedly complained about lack of accommodation, transport and other necessary
facilities in the campus. A very recent complaint lodged by them was regarding
the delay in delivery of the degrees. The Mardan campus, too, was set up in 2000
where two disciplines - telecommunication and computer Microsoft engineering -
with 60 students enrolled in each batch.
The Abbottabad campus was
inaugurated in October 2002 where only one department - electronics engineering
- was set up. As all the three campuses have completed five years of their
establishment, they should be promoted to the level of full-fledged university,
remarked a senior academician. The News
