InPakistan, up till 2002, Universities were recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC) which draws its powers from The University Grants Commission Act, 1974. The Act was repealed in 2002 by the Higher Education Commission Ordinance, 2002 and since then, Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) is responsible for higher education policy, quality assurance, degree recognition, development of new institutions and uplift of existing institutions in Pakistan. It also facilitated the development of higher educational system in Pakistan. Its main purpose was to upgrade universities in Pakistan to be centres of education, research and development.
The HEC has played a leading role towards building a knowledge based economy in Pakistan by giving out hundreds of doctoral scholarships for education abroad every year. Dr. Javaid Laghari is the last incumbent appointed HEC Chairman.
HEC's autonomous status was revoked and it was brought under the control of the Ministry of Professional and Technical Training in June 2012.but the Honourable Sindh High Court suspended on 18.07.2012 the Notification dated 08.06.2012 whereby the HEC was placed under the auspices ofMinistry of Professional and Technical Training

Praise of higher education reforms
There has been much praise of the higher education reforms under the leadership of Prof. Atta-ur-Rahman,FRS, its former Chairman. Pakistan has also been given a number of prestigious international awards for the remarkable transformation of the higher education sector.
Prof. Wolfgang Voelter (Tübingen University, Germany) in his article in Pakistan's leading Daily Newspaper Dawn entitled "The Golden Age" writes "A miracle happened. The scenario of education, science and technology in Pakistan changed dramatically, as never before in the history of Pakistan. The chairperson of the Senate Standing Committee on Education recently announced it as "Pakistan's golden period in higher education".
A US educational expert Prof. Fred M. Hayward has also praised the reform process undertaken by Pakistan: "Since 2002 a number of extraordinary changes have taken place. Over the last six years almost 4,000 scholars have participated in PhD programs in Pakistan. More than 600 students have studied in foreign PhD programs. The Higher Education Commission instituted major upgrades for laboratories and information and communications technology, rehabilitation of facilities, expansion of research support, and development of one of the best digital libraries in the region. A quality assurance and accreditation process was also established. Its successes have been remarkable as the recurrent and development budgets increased 340 percent in real terms from 2001 to 2005/06. By 2008, as a result of its policy and financial successes, most universities had become strong proponents of the Higher Education Commission.Quality had increased significantly, and several institutions were on their way to becoming world-class institutions. Many expatriate Pakistanis returned from abroad with access to competitive salaries. About 95 percent of people sent abroad for training returned, an unusually high result for a developing country in response to improved salaries and working conditions at universities as well as bonding and strict follow-up by the commission, Fulbright, and others."
Prof. Michael Rode, Former Chairman of the United Nations Commission on Science, Technology and Development and presently heading a Network of European and Asian Universities (ASIA-UNINET) writes: "The progress made was breath-taking and has put Pakistan ahead of comparable countries in numerous aspects. To name just a few, the establishment of a free access to scientific literature by high-speed Internet for all universities, the thousands of promising young scientists who were granted PhD studies at top universities abroad, the upgrade of research equipment accessible across the country and the programme of establishing new universities of science and technology, including technology parks attracting foreign investors, prove the efficiency and the long-term benefits for the country enabled by the HEC's chairman.The United Nations Commission on Science and Technology has closely monitored the development in Pakistan in the past years, coming to the unanimous conclusion that Prof Rahman’s policy and programme is a 'best-practice' example for developing countries aiming at building their human resources and establishing an innovative, technology-based economy."
Pakistan has won four international awards for the revolutionary changes in the higher education sector brought about under the leadership of Prof. Atta-ur-Rahman, Chairman (Federal Minister), Higher Education Commission. The TWAS (Academy of Sciences for the Developing World, Italy)Award for Institutional Development was conferred on Prof. Atta-ur-Rahman at the 11th General Conference of TWAS in October 2009.." The Austrian Government conferred its high civil award "Grosse Goldene Ehrenzeischen am Bande" (2007) on Prof. Atta-ur-Rahman for transforming the Higher Education sector in Pakistan. Prof. Atta-ur-Rahman was also elected as Fellow of Royal Society (London)(2006) and Honorary Life Fellow of Kings College, Cambridge University (2007) in recognition of his academic contributions as well as his services to the higher education sector in Pakistan.
Nature, a leading science journal,has also written a number of editorials and articles about the transformation brought about in Pakistan in the higher education sector under he leadership of Prof. Atta-ur-Rahman, former Chairman (Federal Minister), Higher Education Commission.
In an article entitled "Pak Threat to Indian Science" published in the leading daily newspaper Hindustan Times, India, it has been reported that Prof. C.N.R. Rao, Chairman of the Indian Prime Minister's Scientific Advisory Council made a presentation to the Indian Prime Minister at the rapid progress made by Pakistan in the higher education sector under the leadership of Prof. Atta-ur-Rahman, Chairman, Higher Education Commission. It was reported that as result of the reforms brought about in Pakistan " Pakistan may soon join China in giving India serious competition in science". "Science is a lucrative profession in Pakistan. It has tripled the salaries of its scientists in the last few years."
The creation of HEC has had a positive impact on higher education in Pakistan.

KARACHI With fast changes taking place in the era of globalization as compared to a decade back, new technologies are coming up every now and then with newest applications and tools. But the old people working with old technologies are reluctant to adopt the new trends, said Farrukh Nizami, an IT expert while addressing a seminar on Cisco Certified Network Association (CCNA) held at Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology, on Sunday. He pointed out that Internetworking has grown fast during the last few decades to maintain the basicuser requirements with major purpose being to connect several related networks jointly so that each user could share the information same moment. He said that Internetworking involves connecting networks which use different protocols and how different nodes in a network are connected to each other and how they communicate. “There is no scarcity of jobs in the market for networking/IT professionals, he said adding that still capable candidates are not available in the field”. He explained that Cisco Networking Academy is a global education programme which teaches students how to design, build, troubleshoot, and secure computer networks for increased access to career and economic opportunities in communities around the world. Networking Academy, Farrukh said, provides online courses, interactive tools, and hands-on learning activities to help individuals prepare for ICT while and networking career is a requirement now a days virtually in every type of industry.Molecular Pathology, Microbiology depts inauguration The Molecular Pathology and Microbiology departments at the Liaquat National Hospital and Medical College, will be inaugurated today.

LAHORE - The Punjab University, an oldest seat of learning in the sub-continent turned 130 years on Sunday with 30,000 students studying in 13 faculties comprising 73 disciplines. Tracing the history, Punjab University Chief Librarian MuhammadHanif said that PU was formally established with the convening the first meeting of its Senate on Oct 14, 1882, at Simla with Sir James Broadwood Lyall as first VC. It came into existence as a result of a long drawn struggle of the people of Punjab after the War of Independence in 1857. Contrary to previously established three universities Bombay, Madras and Calcutta which were only examining institutions, the PU was both teaching as well as examining body right from the first day.
He said the contribution of Dr GW Leitner, a Hungarian and a naturalised Britisher, was instrumental in the establishment of PU and he became its first registrar. “Prof AC Woolner, who remained vice-chancellor of this university during 1928-1936, played a key role in its development during the initial decades of this century. His statue still stands in front of the Allama Iqbal Campus of the university,” he said, adding that Dr Umar Hayat Malik became first VC after partition and Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran was its 51st VC. The strength of the faculty was greatly reduced because of the migration of non-Muslim teachers and scholars at the time of independence.
NOBLE LAUREATES: PU has produced three noble laureates, Har Gobind Khorana, Abdus Salam and Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar.
Hanif said that during the last five years PU had gone through a number of institutional reforms aimed at quality in teaching and research and a number of newly emerging disciplines have been added to make the varsity education relevant to the needs of the society.
He said PU differed from the other universities because of its adherence to ideological and cultural values while maintaining a progressive professional posture.
About library history, he said it was established in 1873. He said that in the beginning, only 2,000 books of Sir Donald Macleaod were purchased for Rs 2,500 in 1873 but now there were over 7 lakh books with 28 personal collections of eminent scholars. It has also emerged the largest e-library in the country with 63,000 Higher Education Commission digital books on line, he added.
About academic achievements, Hanif said that a record number of 525 PhDs were produced during the last 5 year while 130 PU teachers presentedresearch papers in international conference in the period.
On the other hand, PU had hosted 31 international and national conferences and 215 books authored by teachers on different topics and over 1,000 research papers produced by teachers were also published in leading journals.
He said it was the first time in PU history that all Baloch students and special students were being educated free with Rs 3,000 per month scholarships and free hostel accommodation and food.
