HEC to reserve seats for students of Balochistan, Fata
Islamabad, Sep 22: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has decided to announce reserved seats in the fields of medical and engineering for the students of Balochistan and Fata on open merit and self-finance basis.

The decision was taken during a special meeting held here at HEC. The meeting was presided over by Executive Director HEC Professor Dr. Sohail H. Naqvi and attended by Secretary Higher Education Balochistan Sher Khan Bazai, Advisor HRD HEC Professor Dr. Riaz Hussain Qureshi, Chief Education, P&D Balochistan Muhammad Asif Khan and representative from Fata Secretariat Aurangzeb.

The HEC has 29 reserved medical seats in the medical colleges of KPK and around 50 seats in different engineering universities including UET Lahore, UET Taxila, UET Peshawar, MUET Jamshoro, and QUEST Nawabshah. The distribution of seat is on 60:40 ratios for the students of Balochistan and Fata respectively.

The test of the potential candidates would be conducted though National Testing Service Pakistan (NTS) during the first week of October this year in Quetta, Peshawar, Islamabad and Karachi.

The participants of the meeting were of the view that this step would enable the students of Balochistan and Fata to get opportunity of equipping themselves with professional education at the leading higher education institutions of the country. During the meeting it was also decided that current needs of Balochistan and FATA would be assessed in higher education sector and future programs would be chalked out accordingly.

HEC has already awarded 2,000 scholarships to students of Balochistan and FATA under the project 'Provision of Higher Education Opportunities for Balochistan and Fata' during last four years. Under second and new phase of the project, 1,500 scholarships would also be awarded to the students of the Balochistan and FATA. The HEC has also arranged foundation course for 684 students of Balochistan at Quetta. To date 66 scholars have completed their studies and among these 7 scholars from Balochistan have shown outstanding performance and have clinched gold medal from leading Universities of country i.e. COMSATS, NUST, GC University Lahore and University of Balochistan.

Recently, 600 Masters leading to PhD scholarships for the natives of Balochistan province have been announced under the 'Aghaz-e-Haqooq-e-Balochistan Package' with the cost of Rs3138.692 million. The project is focused towards providing opportunities for access to higher education to financially constrained youth of Balochistan, who despite possessing academic merit are unable to continue their further studies. The offered scholarship would cover tuition costs, accommodation and living expenses of the selected candidates.

Under faculty development programme, HEC has accorded approval for more than 360 foreign scholarships for the faculty members of seven higher education institutions of the province. Through this innovative initiative, the younger faculty is enhancing their further higher education at the leading universities of academically advanced countries.

First female scholar from Balochistan completes PhD
Islamabad: The first female scholar from Balochistan University of Information Technology and Management Sciences (BUITMS), Quetta, Sarwat Afridi, has completed her PhD from France under the Higher Education Commission (HEC) scholarship scheme.

Sarwat has completed her PhD from Université Aix-Marseille II, France. In 2008, Sarwat was awarded HEC overseas scholarship for France. From June 2008 to August 2008, she completed an intensive French language course for two months at ILCF (Institut de Langue et de Culture Françaises / Institut Catholique de Paris), France. In September 2008, Sarwat was registered in PhD at Université Aix-Marseille II, France, under the supervision of Professor Dr Pascal Rihet.

She completed her PhD in July 2012 titled "Influence of candidate gene variants on Plasmodium Falciparum Malaria related phenotypes and functional effects of NCR3-412 polymorphism associated to Malaria." During her PhD, she worked on diverse projects related to genomics, bioinformatics and biochemistry. The main focus of her research was genetic analysis of resistance to malaria.

The overall objective of her work was to identify genes, which are involved in resistance or susceptibility to malaria in humans, and to identify human genetic factors which have been previously associated to resistance to malaria and have the tendency to influence the level of malarial antibodies thus ultimately leading to protection against malaria. Moreover, she also worked on functional evaluation of NCR3 polymorphism, previously associated to Malaria. All the results obtained help illustrate the contribution of bioinformatics, genetics and genomics in understanding the mechanism involved in resistance to human Malaria. During her PhD research she managed to publish three articles in international journals while two are under process of submission. She also presented her research work in the form of poster in two institutions. She has successfully graduated and returned to Pakistan and have rejoined her parent university.

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) is also planning to award 600 Masters leading to PhD scholarships for the natives of Balochistan province. The government has recently approved the project under the "Aghaz-e-Haqooq-e-Balochistan Package" on August 30, 2012. The news

International Computer Project Olympiad: Pakistani student wins gold medal Islamabad: A Pakistani student from Balochistan has bagged gold medal in an international contest held in Turkmenistan leaving all the countries like Germany, Canada, Russia, England, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka behind.

M. Ubaidullah son of Haji Talib Din, a rice trader, is a class ninth student of Pak-Turk International Schools and Colleges, has brought home a gold medal from the International Computer Project Olympiad (ICPO) held in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

The competition was held on September 14 and 15 among students from 45 countries who presented 150 projects in the Olympiad.

Ubaidullah's project that caught attention of participants, organisers and judges was regarding plant automation system; subsequently he
was awarded 1st position in the hardware category.

His project P-Bot aims at saving plants in cold-flame or greenhouse setting, especially when someone wants to protect the plants at home in all the seasons. P-Bot automates the round-the-year tasks of plant care by means of its full-automatic cold flame and greenhouse routines.

The bot helps people save time in caring about plants and is power-thrift by powering itself by its solar cells. The microprocessors board
optimizes the maximum energy possible to power the bot to fulfil its duties.

Upon arrival, Ubaidullah and project supervisor Halil Baris (Turkish teacher) both were received warmly because for their outstanding achievement that has brought pride and distinction to Pakistan.

Ubaidullah said: "International competitions are very important for the grooming of students. Tour of other countries not only gives confidence to the students but it also gives them opportunity to have interaction with students of other nations and learn from them.

"Although there is an impression that people of Balochistan are deprived of their rights but my success shows that if people would work hard, they can achieve anything in difficult condition," he said.

Project Supervisor Halil Baris termed the success result of hard work and said that he was proud of his students.

It may be mentioned that ICPO is an international competition which brings the world's best IT students together. It also serves to promote intercultural dialogue and cooperation, through the involvement of students and teachers from many different countries. Dawn

PMAS-AAUR, Vice Chancellor Professor Dr. Muhammad Azim Malik was the chief guest while, FAPUASA-Islamabad President Rashid Khalid was the guest of honour on the occasion.

In his address, Dr. Azeem Malik congratulated new office-bearers of ASA and said employees and management should work together for development and expansion of the university. He assured the employees that all their genuine demands would be addressed at the earliest. He urged the faculty members to remain positive and productive in all their scholarly efforts and always think for the collective cause of the community. He said that all out efforts should be made to keep this association clean from the petty affairs and politicising in the hands of those who think of their own interests instead of collective cause.

ASA President Professor Dr. Nadeem Akhtar Abbasi said that this platform would provide a great opportunity for the faculty members for tabling their reasonable ideas committed to the welfare of the community.

He added that the misconception should be removed that such kinds of associations work against the administration rather ASA serves as a bridge between the administration and the faculty. The news
