BS (Honours) programme College goes ahead unprepared
Lahore: As the Government College of Science, Wahdat Road has
invited applications for admission to the new four-year BS (Honours)
programme, its faculty says the principal introduced certain subjects
without any preparation.
Admissions will formally begin after declaration of results of FA/FSc annual examinations on Saturday (tomorrow).
college has offered certain subjects, which are not even being offered
at the BS (Honours) level in the university it's attached with. The
college is offering BS (Honours) in disciplines like English, Education,
Political Science, Economics and Urdu, while these subjects are not
being offered by the Punjab University at the BS (Honours) level.
college has introduced BS (Honours) in Education though it was never a
subject at the college at intermediate or graduation level. Virtually,
there was no faculty member available for this subject. Sources in the
college say how the college can launch the BS (Honours) programme, which
is based on high aspirations, without any preparation.
Principal Dr Iftikhar Ahmad Baig said the college would introduce
courses on the basis of course outlines prepared by the Higher Education
Commission. "It does not matter the Punjab University is not running
the BS (Honours) programme in the disciplines concerned. May be, the PU
does not have infrastructure but this college has," he said.
a question about introducing BS (Honours) in Education, Dr Baig said
there was no bar on introducing new disciplines. About the availability
of faculty in the discipline, he said: "I am myself a teacher of
Sources said the principal was on the verge of
retirement and he introduced the discipline of education to keep himself
involved. They said the principal did not take classes because neither
there was any department of education nor subject of education being
taught in the college.
Punjab University BS (Honours) programme
in-charge Prof Dr Jamil Anwar said neither the Higher Education
Department nor the Government College of Science had formally sent any
list of disciplines being introduced in BS (Honours).
who is also Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the Punjab University, said the
varsity was not offering BS (Honours) in disciplines of English,
Education, Political Science, Economics and Urdu. He said the BS
(Honours) programme would face problems if subjects were introduced in a
haste and without formal approval of the universities. He said it would
be difficult to appoint university teachers as focal persons to
supervise the BS (Honours) programme in the disciplines, which were not
available in the university.
The Punjab University has got six
government colleges attached and is currently assessing their capacity
to introduce BS Honours programme.
Stating that the PU was not
offering BS (Honours) in arts subjects, Prof Anwar said he would hold a
meeting of department heads on the honours programme. He said lots of
issues regarding affiliation and financing were pending.
Anwar, however, said the Punjab University had finally resolved the
issue of examination with the Higher Education Department. He said the
PU would conduct final examination after each BS (Honours) semester in
its attached colleges, while colleges would hold midterm examinations
during each semester.
Punjab Higher Education Secretary Ahad
Khan Cheema said colleges were being given autonomy so that they could
take decisions on their own.
Cheema said the Higher Education
Department had drafted rules and regulations for the 26 colleges
selected for the BS (Honours) programme. He said the rules had been
drafted after improving the rules and regulations of the autonomous
Queen Mary College. "These rules and regulations will now be finalised
by boards of governors notified at these colleges on August 31," he

UET projects shelved for want of funds
Taxila: The country's financial crisis has forced the Higher
Education Commission (HEC) to shelve 12 academic and human resource
development projects of the University of Engineering and Technology
Sources in the UET confirmed that the HEC had
refused to provide Rs475.433 million for the establishment of Gandhara
College of Architecture, Rs220 million for the Chakwal sub-campus, Rs450
million for strengthening of existing facilities, laboratories and
equipment, Rs300 million for setting up of a power plant, high voltage
and power system laboratory, Rs38.45 million for a hydropower
development laboratory in electrical engineering department, Rs342
million for establishment of electronics engineering department and
Rs427.8 million for the establishment of faculty of energy and power
Other projects included provision of
information technology infrastructure and setting up of data centre
worth 132.02 million rupees, modelling and simulation for standardised
testing and analysis of electrical system worth Rs39.80 million,
establishment of power electronics laboratory for advanced research in
electrical engineering department worth Rs39.50 million and
strengthening of structural engineering studies worth 450 million
Sources said if the HEC stopped funds against the approved plans, the university would have to cancel the ongoing contracts.
A senior official of the HEC told this correspondent that they had
informed vice chancellors and rectors of public sector universities that
the commission was not in a position to provide them adequate funds.
Under the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) 2009-2010, the HEC
had been allocated Rs22.5 billion for its 358 development schemes which
included both ongoing and new ones. However, according to sources, the
government later revised the allocations to less than Rs18.5 billion.
The sources said lack of funds had caused suspension of 44 per cent HRD
projects, stoppage of 26 per cent civil work and postponement of
installation of 25 per cent equipment in universities.
contacted, Director Planning and Development UET, Musharraf Sabih Sheikh
confirmed that the university was facing financial problems because of a
major slash in grants by the HEC. The HEC has not increased recurring
grants of universities and reduced its development funds; therefore, UET
is facing difficulty even in payment of salaries to its employees and
has stopped development work. Dawn
