Computer science faculty list: Over 1,400 students fail to get admission
Karachi: More than 1,400 students who have passed their matric
exams with computer science group this year have been deprived of
pursuing their further studies in the same discipline as the number of
seats available at government colleges of the city is limited and not
Despite the fact that the trend of choosing computer science education
in lieu of biology among the Class IX and X students is growing with
each passing year, the irony is that the faculty of computer science is
only available in 27 colleges - 14 male and 13 female colleges - out of
the total 124 government colleges in the city.
It is for this
reason that only 800 male and 700 female candidates have been given
admissions to the first-year classes in the 27 government colleges
having facilities of computer science laboratories.
the total number of applicants seeking admission to first-year classes
in computer science colleges under the Centralised Admission Policy
were around 3,000 - over 1500 male and 1380 female students.
a question about the fate of candidates who failed to get
admission to first-year classes in computer science group despite
passing their matric exams with the same discipline, an official of the
CAP committee said that most candidates would be accommodated in
science (pre-engineering) group while remaining candidates who had
mentioned commerce group as their second choice in the admission forms
would be given admission to commerce faculty in government colleges.
the presence of an upward trend among students in pursuing
computer science education, Prof Iftikhar Aazmi, who had been tasked
with monitoring the process of admissions under the Centralized
Admission Policy by the Sindh education department, emphasised the need
for opening more computer science faculties in colleges.
Prof Aazmi, who
is also the general secretary of the Karachi chapter of the
Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association, said that the scrutiny of
forms during the admissions process indicated that trend.
trend was specially observed in students of Baldia, Orangi,
Nazimabad, North Nazimabad, Federal B Area, New Karachi and
Gulshan-i-Iqbal areas, he said.
He said that on the one hand
there were only a few government colleges where the faculty of computer
science was available and, on the other hand, computer labs of these
colleges were facing serious funding problems, besides the shortage of
computer science teachers.
"Computer science technology is
progressing at such a fast speed that its software and other parts
become obsolete after every one or two years. It has also been seen
that colleges are not provided with funds to upgrade their labs," Prof
Aazmi said. Dawn
