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 establishment.

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 disciplines.

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 full-fledged universities."

"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 senior professor.

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 they would be converted into autonomous universities on completion of five years.

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.

The HEC 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
