Director’s Message
Higher Education Commission (HEC) has robustly been improving the quality of higher education in Pakistan, match-able with the best international standards. Quality of education is the concern of all academic organizations across the globe. With the advancement of science and technology, the roles of educational institutions have become pivotal in the development of any country. Since higher education institutions have to play their fundamental role in disseminating knowledge-based economy and preparing skilled human capital through continuous capacity building.
Since its establishment in 2017, the University of Baltistan, Skardu has been striving to give quality education in one of the remotest regions of the country. In this backdrop, Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC) was established in 2018 with the aim to ensure/ enhance quality in teaching and research activities. The QEC-UoBS is performing its best in various roles such as carrying out institutional performance evaluation (IPE), teacher and course evaluations, accreditation of all degree programs, review of on-going MPhil/MS programs, analyzing the self-assessment reports in various disciplines, and organizing seminars and workshops on quality assurance. Being the Director, it is my prime responsibility to expedite all these functions in the way that University’s ranking could be uplifted in the country and the Asian region.
I do hope that under the dynamic leadership of Professor Dr. Muhammad Naeem Khan, Vice-Chancellor, and with the professionally committed team of QEC, we shall achieve its targets in accordance with the national standards set by Higher Education Commission, Pakistan.
