221 NUST students awarded BBA degrees at 3rd convocation
Islamabad: National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) Rector Engineer Muhammad Asghar has said
that with the sources of funding for faculty development drying out and
reduced funding for higher education, alternative arrangements need to
be made to meet the financial needs of this vital sector.
He stated this while addressing the 3rd Convocation of the NUST Business School here on Saturday at NUST campus.
highlighting the historical facts of funding for the education sector
in Pakistan, the NUST rector observed that under the vision of Dr.
Attaur Rahman and his team at HEC, universities today were able to
discover a place for them in the overall structure of institutions.
the establishment of HEC, all universities gained a lot and NUST also
went up the progress ladder with very good speed. Commenting on the
present state of higher education in Pakistan the rector quoted a piece
from the history of the USA. He said, on being told that they were
spending too much money on education, President of the Harvard
University replied, "If you want to know the value of education, try
ignorance." His audience was sensible, so they did not experiment with
ignorance and are leaders of the world today. We have not only tried
ignorance, but are badly stuck in it and are facing its consequences.
The total enrolment in Pakistan stood at 36 million students, out of
which 0.8 million were enrolled to higher education. The survey
concluded that most of the educational responsibility had been
outsourced by the Government of Pakistan, he added. While highlighting
the salient features and milestones of the NUST and NBS the Rector told
that total student population at NUST today was 11,000 as compared to
4,418 in 2002. Yearly intake had been increased from 1,400 in 2002 to
3,595 in 2010 with 202 PhD students and 927 faculty members.
the progress made by the NBS in a very short span of time Engineer
Asghar expressed that starting with less than 100 students as NIMS, the
NBS has grown to the size of about 1,100 students without losing
quality. More importantly they have added new programmes to social
sciences like economics, mass communication and public administration.
the ceremony degrees were awarded by the Rector to 221 graduating
students of the BBA sessions of 2004, 2005 and 2006. Winners of the
President's Gold Medal included Tahmeen Ahmad Khan (BBA-2004/CGPA:
3.91/4.00), Lala Rukh Syed (BBA-2004/ CGPA: 3.91/4.00), Shazil Pervaiz
(BBA-2005/ CGPA: 3.88/4.00) and Fatima Zehra (BBA-2006/ CGPA:
3.83/4.00). Dr. Ashfaque H. Khan, DG & Dean NBS also addressed the
ceremony and while felicitating the graduating students he advised them
to keep up the high values and standards of their institute.

HEC verifies degrees of 658 legislators
Islamabad: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has verified 658
degrees of the members of assemblies while authenticity of 370 is still
to be ascertained.
HEC focal person Dr Rahim Bux Channa said on
Sunday that out of total verified degrees, 604 are genuine while 54 are
declared invalid or fake and 18 cases are pending in courts. As many as
370 cases of verification of degrees are being delayed due to
non-submission of supporting documents including forms and matriculation
and intermediate certificates by members of parliament and provincial
assemblies, he added.
He said there is no deadline given for degree
verification and the process will continue till degrees and required
information is received from the universities. Channa said the Election
Commission has written letters to the speakers concerned to direct the
members of assemblies to provide the information they have been asked
for. The Election Commission has asked the Higher Education Commission
to start the process of verification of degrees on the directions of
Supreme Court of Pakistan.
The Election Commission appointed a three
member committee which is hearing cases of members of assemblies so that
they can prove genuineness of their graduation degrees.
