Chairman Board of Governors
It gives me immense pleasure that the HITEC University has achieved the status of a highly reputed seat of learning and research among its contemporary institutions within one decade in line with the aspirations of the founding fathers. It has steadily grown and progressed horizontally and vertically by starting new degree programs keeping in view the national and international job market. The university has been a leader in adopting the new trends in education and setting quality standards by following the educational parameters given by Higher Education Commission Islamabad and Pakistan Engineering Council. I am very delighted to express that HITEC University was among the pioneer Higher Education Institutions that switched over to Outcome Based Education system under the umbrella of Washington Accord, thus earning the recognition and acceptance of its engineering degrees worldwide.
Universities play a crucial role in generating new ideas, and in accumulating and transmitting knowledge. Higher education institutions are major sources for providing the human capital required for industry in particular and society in general. They are indispensible players in enhancing the socio-economic environments and the quality of life through applied research. I am pleased to learn that the research output of the university has remained commendable. The faculty and the students are actively involved in research activities in collaboration with industrial sector, especially the R&D projects undertaken from Heavy Industries Taxila.
In the modern technological advancement era, no institution can work in isolation and need to join the other players to find the new avenues and solutions to the problems of the academia and industry. HITEC University as a pioneer member is providing the platform of Asia Technological University Network (ATU-Net) to its faculty and students to take full benefit of the research facilities and learning opportunities available in the member countries. The HITEC University’s international collaborations with top ranking universities of UK, Turkey and Malaysia also provide ample opportunities to its students to broaden their learning experiences by completing part of their education in these universities at low cost.
The Board of Governors and the management of the university remain fully committed to provide quality education to the students and their moral grooming to make them proud and responsible citizens of Pakistan.
May Allah SWT grant success to HITEC University in all its endeavors. Ameen
