The campuses passed test of accreditation procedure by the HEC, reports Online on Wednesday.
The campuses were established in 2012 with university’s own resources amounting to Rs500 million each.
The current student strength of Bhakkar campus is 3,207 with 49 faculty members including 12 PhDs while the Mianwali campus is providing education and research facilities to 3,487 students with 46 faculty members including 12 PhDs.
Previously, the HEC had granted conditional NOC for Bhakkar Campus with the direction to address quality issues while the Mianwali campus was not granted the NOC due to deficiencies in infrastructural facilities and faculty shortage, the report added.
The primary concern of the commission was that the previous university administration had stated programs in various departments without the required number of faculty members and related facilities.
As result, the quality of education was seriously compromised as observed by the HEC.
Soon after Dr Ishtiaq Ahmad has joined the university as Vice Chancellor, quality issues have been addressed seriously to meet deficiencies as previously pointed out by the HEC team.
During the first phase, faculty recruitment process has been completed by arranging selection board for recruiting senior faculty members as directed by the HEC.
The university further diverted its spending towards development work and procurement of lab equipment and allied facilities to successfully cope with the infrastructural deficiencies to verify and inspect the improvement in facilities and other program wise requirements, the HEC dispatched its dedicated expert teams.-Online
