Message of the Chairman Board of Governors
HITEC University Taxila was established by the HIT Education Welfare Trust in 2007 with a vision to be a bastion of academic excellence and citadel of ideological moorings, national integration and socio – religious values. The University was granted Charter by the Government of the Punjab in 2009. It is encouraging that the University has steadily grown in stature, earned recognition and acquired a prestigious place in higher education sector due to the commitment, dedication and unstinted hard work of the faculty and staff of the University.
I am happy that the University has shifted to Outcome Based Education (OBE) system under Washington Accord and its engineering programs have been accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council under the new accreditation manual, the honor shared by few universities in Pakistan. The accreditation of Computer Science program in the highest category “W” by National Computing Education Accreditation Council also reflects the high quality standards being followed by the University.
It is encouraging that collaborations with international top ranking universities are progressing well and are affording excellent research and learning opportunities to our undergraduate and graduate students. I am confident that students will also benefit from the Asia Technological University Network (ATU-Net) established under the initiative of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), of which HITEC University is a founding member.
The Board of Governors is cognizant of the development needs of the University and is committed to provide excellent learning environment to the students. Campus infrastructure, laboratories, library and other allied facilities are being upgraded continuously.
My prayers and best wishes for the success of the University in its endeavours.
Muhammad Naeem Ashraf, HI(M)
