3 1. HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEM OF PAKISTAN When Pakistan came into being in 1947 it had only one university, the University of Punjab. That same year the first Educational was held in which the educational policy was laid down so that high quality education could be produced. In the early 1970s, all of Pakistan's educational institutions were nationalized by the government. For the next decade, Pakistan's entire system of education was state-run. However, the growing demand for higher education fast outpaced the rate at which new public universities were being established. And the system could only accommodate 25 percent of the high school graduates who applied to the higher education institutions. The University Grants Commission (UGC) was established in 1974 to provide financial funding to universities in Pakistan and to regulate the system of higher education. In the mid 1980s however private new universities emerged and they started performing better than the nationalized universities. This then triggered the denationalization process of the higher education institutions. In recent years the higher education sector in Pakistan has gone through a dramatic revival. A Higher Education Commission (HEC) was established on 11 September 2002, replacing the old University Grants Commission. The aim of this revival was to reform higher education and transform Pakistan from an agriculture-based economy to a knowledge-based economy. The establishment of the Higher Education Commission led to the mushrooming of many universities all over the country. Those in the public sector were granted much larger funds to cater to their research and development needs. Acting as a regulatory body the Commission drew up regulations for universities to attain a certain standard of excellence. On the domestic scene the National Education Policy calls for increasing the university student enrolment base, in the 17 to 23 years age group, by 10 per cent. Currently there are 128 universities recognized by the HEC across Pakistan. Page 1 of 84

4 To further strengthen the quality of faculty, a highly qualified faculty was hired from different countries through foreign faculty hiring programs by offering them various incentives. Students have also been sent on scholarships abroad as a result of international partnerships with other countries. A major part of the Commission s policy aims to promote a rich research culture in higher education institutions. For this purpose it has drawn up a list of approved research journals for the scholars to publish papers in, while the promotion of faculty members is linked with the number of research articles published in ISI-indexed, international journals or its approved research journals. This significantly helped in strengthening the research culture as well as promoting new knowledge in the country. Bahria University, an HEC-recognized institution, is also working towards attaining excellence in research and higher education, and that includes applying for the QS World University Rankings.

5 2.0 BAHRIA UNIVERSITY 2.1 HISTORY AND BACKGROUND Pakistan s new federal capital, Islamabad, started functioning in 1962, with a skeleton staff and minimal infrastructure. The burden of logistics, accommodation and other facilities had to be borne by the small city of Rawalpindi, some twenty kilometers away. Providing essential amenities for the new settlers became the main priority while basic educational facilities came after that. The first seat of higher learning in Islamabad, the Quaid-e-Azam University, became functional in With no other competitor in the capital, the pursuit of higher education remained a distant dream for the settlers. During the 80s and 90s Islamabad began to expand rapidly. New institutions for higher learning emerged, mostly financed by the private sector. They had foreign affiliations, operated from hired premises and somehow failed to fulfill the needs of the people. 2.2 BAHRIA UNIVERSITY S ESTABLISHMENT The Pakistan Navy made a start with setting up and running two high school level Bahria Colleges, one at Karachi and the other at Islamabad. ( Bahria means Marine in Urdu, Pakistan s national language.) With this experience, the Navy started university level education at its Bahria College campuses in Islamabad & Karachi in the mid 90s with two departments. They were then known as Bahria Institute of Management and Computer Sciences. Later they were given the status of a university in February 2000 with campus in Islamabad as well as in Karachi. Starting with the two departments, four more were added over ten years, inaddition to three constituent units at Karachi. Its total student strength, including those of its affiliated units, now hovers around 9,500. Bahria University aims to meet the higher educational needs of not only the northern part of the province of Punjab but also of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and the Gilgit Baltistan region. With the expected opening of trade routes with the Central Asian states, the university hopes to attract students from this region as well. The university and its affiliated units can be seen on the attached map. Page 3 of 84

20 3.0 WHY BAHRIA UNIVERSITY SEEKS A QS RANKING Bahria University aims to achieve the status of a world class university in order to attract students not only from across Pakistan, but also from neighboring countries like Afghanistan, Iran, the Central Asian States and others. To do this, BU has initiated linkages with thirteen universities and four international educational networks, which include those from the US, UK, Australia, Iran, Canada, Azerbaijan, Italy and the UAE. Bahria University s Office of Foreign Collaboration is constantly pursuing more linkages, through student and faculty visits and exchange programs. Our students are taught by highly accomplished faculty dedicated in their role as educators. Students are offered a complete education package that not only fulfills their academic needs but also ensures their overall growth and development through extracurricular opportunities. There is a strong focus on the exchange of knowledge and applied research in emerging fields in collaboration with national and international universities and research institutions. Ph.D scholarships worth 70 million rupees have been provided to deserving scholars. To further this initiative, an endowment fund has been created that aims at providing more students with the opportunity of attaining higher education through our scholarship programs. The university is entirely self-financed and is not dependent on any government grants. It has set up campuses, research institutes, schools and colleges and thus played its part in boosting education in Pakistan. 3.1 COMPARISON WITH NUST National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) is the only university in Pakistan which has earned a QS Ranking. Established two decades ago in 1991 for promoting higher education in science and technology, NUST has demonstrated that it is the leading university of the country. Bahria University on the other hand, commenced with a very modest beginning a decade ago in The journey since has not been easy, but in this short time the university has risen to join the ranks of some of the leading higher educational institutions of Pakistan.
