The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dr. Iftikhar Hussain, has emphasized improving the quality of education and assured that the University of Engineering and Technology, Peshawar is committed to bring the standards of education at par with international norms. This commitment has already been partially promoted with the establishment of Quality Enhancement Cell at the university.
Why have a
Quality Enhancement Cell
The standard of higher education in Pakistan is below international norms and there is a need to bridge the gap in order to earn international recognition of our degrees and develop a knowledge-based economy. It was in this context that Quality Assurance Committee, comprising the Vice Chancellors of universities and HEC policy makers, was established in 2003. The committee was given the task to develop a viable mechanism for implementation in the higher education sector to improve quality. After conducting a series of meetings with the concerned stakeholders, the committee recommended the establishment of Quality Enhancement Cells (QECs) in all public sector universities. QECs have now been established in all public and private sector universities of Pakistan. QECs are monitored, guided and supervised by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) of HEC.
