Dear Students, on behalf of Department of Quality Enhancement Cell, I welcome you to this prestigious educational institution, and hope you will have good time with us during you stay at the University in acquiring necessary knowledge, skills, attitude and behavior to become a successful professional.

Let you people be familiar with the department of Quality Enhancement cell, its activities and your role in the journey of quality assurance.

The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan since its inception in 2002 has been striving hard to improve the standard of higher education. One of the major challenges the tertiary education system of Pakistan is facing is “quality of teaching and research conditions”. Enhancing quality is one of the core cross cutting strategic aims of HEC. In fact, the majority of functions and powers of HEC (Ordinance 2002) made it responsible for ensuring quality of research and education in HEIs/ DAIs. The Higher Education Commission is making concerted efforts to improve the quality of higher education and to move university education to meet international standards in the provision of high-quality teaching, learning, research and service. Higher Education Commission has developed a focused and precise approach by establishing Quality Enhancement Cells in each University/ Degree Awarding Institutes for the best results and consistency in the process of the Quality Assurance & Enhancement. It reflects an effort to sensitize higher education institutions to the changes taking place internationally and bring higher education in Pakistan at par with leading institutions around the world.

HEC executes its policies through Quality Enhancement Cells [QEC], established in universities/ Higher Education Institutes [HEIs], in Pakistan. Quality Enhancement Cell, alongside undertaking many other measures for enhancing academic quality in HEIs, also implements quality assessment mechanism of academic programs, called Self-Assessment Process. The outcome of this process is Self-Assessment Report [SAR]. The main objective of preparing SAR is:

  • To improve academic programs and ensure high academic standards by providing feedback for faculty and administration to initiate action plan for improvement.
