Quality Assurance and Collaborations (QA&C)
The Directorate of Quality Assurance and Collaborations (QA&C) was established in 2012. QA&C has a primary role of assuring quality in synchronism with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) guidelines.
The Directorate is also responsible for establishing and monitoring MOUs meant for collaboration with other universities and organizations of repute. The foremost function of the Directorate is to assure that teaching, learning and evaluation processes are maintained as per International norms and requirements.
An extensive system is in place to solicit feedback from the students, faculty and other stake-holders to bring about continual improvement in the quality of education. The feedback also encompasses the quality of administrative support and other allied services available in the University.
The accruing data is analyzed in details and short comings are addressed speedily. The Directorate also keeps a record of all the proceedings and furnishes the required information to PEC and HEC on regular basis. This data is also essentially required for accreditation of our academic programs by various regulatory bodies.
HITEC University has now transformed into an “Outcome Based Education (OBE)” Institute. This shift has added new dimensions to the functions and responsibilities of the Directorate. Therefore, it closely monitors the attainment of “Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)”, “Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)” and “Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)” quite diligently.PEOs are those perceived objectives which our Alumni would be pursuing 4-5 years after graduation.
It means HITEC University’s quality of education assures that our graduates would be proficiently practicing their respective professional activities. OBE philosophy, therefore, essentially requires that all institutions must clearly formulate their PEOs and evidence should be in place to compute attainment of those PEOs through the feedback from the alumni and their employers.
