the 13th President of Kyung Hee University


Dr. Inwon Choue, the 13th President of Kyung Hee University, is a political scientist who has pioneered the study of what he calls the "Esthetic Space in Life and Politics." He has sought after social discourse to find the ways to realize the esthetic space. He wishes to reconstitute the " Real Politik " through creative union of reason and emotions, humans and institution, the reality and the romance. The future society he envisages is centered on humans and to be achieved through discourses on "transcendental engagement." He seeks to transcend today's real politics where ideological confrontations and struggles prevail. Throughout his works, he believes that we must rediscover the transformative episteme for the betterment of human life.

He has published his views and arguments through a number of books. State and Choice, Politics Beyond Trammels: Political Discourse for Transcendental Engagement, The Dusk of Modern Civilization: Clashes and Beyond, Dialogues Off the 20th Century are the representative ones. His views have been also summarized in such works as “The Myth of Causal Necessity,” “Rehumanizing Dialectics,” and “Underneath Globalization: Lingering Life Politics and Its Future in Korea.”

As a scholar cum social practitioner, Dr. Choue has provided numerous agendas and proposals to the government, mass media, civil society, and international organizations.

Dr. Inwon Choue is a 1977 graduate of Kyung Hee University's Political Science Department.

Aga Khan University(Sindh)


Chartered in 1983, Aga Khan University is a private, autonomous university that promotes human welfare through research, teaching and community service. Based on the principles of quality, access, impact and relevance, the University has campuses and programmes in Afghanistan, East Africa, Egypt, Pakistan, Syria and the United Kingdom. Its facilities include teaching hospitals, Nursing Schools and a Medical College, Institutes for Educational Development, an Examination Board and an Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations. It occupies a pivotal place within Aga Khan Development Network.

AKU brings international expertise to bear upon the establishment and enhancement of its current and future programmes and services through ongoing partnerships with prestigious overseas institutions. Additionally, in line with its commitment to the advancement of the status and professional opportunities for women, the University seeks similar collaborations to strengthen women-oriented professions such as nursing and teaching.

AKU is a non-denominational institution open to all, irrespective of religion, ethnicity, gender or national origin. Forty-four per cent of the University's faculty are women, many in senior posts. Fifty per cent of students in the Medical College are also women. The University's admission policy is needs-blind and based on merit.

While the University sets its sights on the latest breakthroughs in health sciences and technology, as well as the application of well-proven and appropriate technologies that have been insufficiently applied in Pakistan, it also seeks to integrate systems of values, ethics and principles. In doing so, AKU is an important force for pluralism, teaching the skills of critical thinking, analysis and problem-solving, while inculcating moral reasoning, ethics and respect for others.

In its first two decades, AKU's major focus was in the fields of health and education. In the decade ahead, the University plans to step beyond professional education towards becoming a comprehensive university.

Following the liberal arts model, a Faculty of Arts and Sciences will be established on a new campus in Karachi and East Africa. It will develop skills in critical thinking and analysis, raise proficiency in verbal and written communication, enhance human resource development in the region, and advance understanding in particular academic disciplines.

Another programme under consideration is an Institute of Human Development, which will be dedicated to advancing the understanding of the effects and conditions of early childhood on subsequent well-being and performance, and the application of this understanding to the development of interventions and evaluation to assess their potential efficacy and applicability.

Baqai Medical University(Sindh)

he Baqais( Dr.Fareed Uddin Baqai and Dr.Zahida Baqai) both medical practitioners and surgeons by profession, after completing their medical education in Pakistan and Great Britain, started practicing the art of healing in an underdeveloped country and in a fast growing city of Karachi, the then capital of Pakistan. The enormity and complexity of health care problems and the paucity of proper infrastructures for health care delivery systems motivated them to develop a comprehensive concept of community development on the basis of self reliance and without depending upon the public sector financing. The concept started unfolding itself in concrete actions when the Baqai Foundation acquired a large piece of land on Super Highway just at the outskirts of Karachi and established the first ever rural Medical Centre supported by secondary and tertiary health care facilities in 1976.

Hamdard University(Sindh)


haheed Hakim Mohammed Said
Founder Chancellor

“It has been my endeavor to prepare Pakistani youth for the challenges of tomorrow. I would like to see the youth studying at our campuses to develop the qualities of devotion, love, determination and services to mankind.”
Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said (1920-1998) established Hamdard Pakistan in 1948. Within few years, the herbal medical products of Hamdard became household names. The phenomenal business success of Hamdard brands is a legendary part of the business history of Pakistan.

The name Hamdard however acquired a still wider meaning, when Hakim Mohammed Said founded Hamdard University in 1991. The establishment of a university which could enliven the intellectual tradition of the educational institutions of the golden era of Muslim civilization had always been his most cherished dream. In fact it was the central point towards which all his endeavors were directed. The actual appearance of the university was just the culmination of a long dedicated and continued effort spanning his whole life.

However, apart from being a great educational leader, Hakim Mohammed Said was also one of the finest exponents of eastern medicine, who had treated millions of patients from all over the world including Pakistan, Europe, Africa and the Middle East by the time of his martyrdom (Shahadat) in October 1998. In the fifty years of his active career as a practitioner of Greco-Arab medicine par excellence, Hakim Mohammed Said also achieved international renown as a scholar and researcher in medicine in recognition of his meritorious services and scholarly achievements when he was awarded Nishan-e-Imtiaz (Posthumous) by the Government of Pakistan in 2002.

As a prolific writer, he had to his credit a large number of books and articles. He edited many research journals and periodicals on medicine, history and Islam. Hakim Mohammed Said also created two very widely attended national forums: Hamdard Shura (for leaders of public opinion) and Naunehal Assembly (for children). He attended and read papers at numerous conferences all over the world and organized a number of international conferences for promotion of science in Pakistan in collaboration with national and international organizations including UNESCO and WHO. He also held important offices and memberships of dozens of national and international organizations related to education and health care, the fields to which his contributions are universally acknowledged.

A man of Herculean intellectual and organizational capabilities, Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said will be remembered most for creating Hamdard University, which he stewarded to appear as one of the top institutions of higher education and learning in Pakistan.

Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture(Sindh)

The Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture (IVS) was founded in 1989 by a group of professional architects, designers and artists who believed that Karachi was in critical need of a school of excellence encompassing the disciplines of Fine Arts, Design and Architecture.

The School is registered as a not-for-profit, non-commercial institution and is managed by an Executive Committee through the Executive Director, under the control of an independent Board of Governors that includes distinguished educationists, artists, architects, industrialists, bankers and media persons, in addition to three members nominated by the Government of Sindh. The Governor of Sindh is the Patron of the School.

The IVS was granted an independent charter by the Government of Sindh in June 1994, thereby empowering it to award its own degrees. It was the fourth private institution of higher learning in Pakistan to be given degree awarding status. Admission to the School is strictly based on merit as determined by an aptitude test, an interview process and a weightage criteria.

The formal four-year programme in Fine Arts and Design and the five-year programme in Architecture began in September 1990 with the induction of 45 students. This number has progressively increased, with the current intake at 120 students. The overall student body has grown to over 440. Fourteen batches of Fine Art and Design students and thirteen batches of Architecture students have graduated.

With the generous support of philanthropists and well-wishers, the School acquired a piece of land in KDA Scheme No. 5, Clifton , and built its custom designed campus which became operational in 1994. Shortly afterwards, the School undertook the unique project of relocating a hundred-year old land mark of Karachi, the Nusserwanjee Building, to the new campus. This building which is part of Karachi 's architectural heritage was dismantled from its original site, stone by stone and was reconstructed at the School Campus. The four-storey East Wing was completed in 2001 and the three storey West Wing became operational at the end of 2004. The two wings give the School a further 25,000 sq. ft. of space, while additions to the building and interior continue to be made.

The Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture is dedicated to much more than producing technically competent artists, designers and architects. It strives to motivate and guide students to think, be curious, to keep themselves open to sources of experience and learning, to be politically aware and socially responsive and take an independent position, respecting knowledge and people of knowledge, with humility.

Mehran University of Eng. & Technology(Sindh)

Industrial and technological development in Pakistan has been quite rapid since its independence and particularly during the sixties and seventies. The main fields of development have been related to the enhancement of agriculture, establishment of and up-gradation of industries and exploration of its indigenous resources. This development has resulted in increased demand for qualified engineers in different fields in addition to other professionals. In order to meet this demand and to provide an opportunity of engineering education to the people hailing from the interior of Sindh Province, Sindh University Engineering College was established in 1963 as a constituent college of University of Sindh (then spelt 'Sind') in Jamshoro about 15 km. from Hyderabad on the right bank of river Indus.

The Education Policy of 1972 provided for up-gradation of the Sindh University Engineering College to the level of a University of Engineering and Technology. Accordingly, the college was first declared as an additional campus of the University of Sindh headed by a Pro-Vice-Chancellor in July 1976 and later upgraded to the level of a fully fledged independent University on 1st March, 1977 through an ordinance issued by the Government of Sindh. The ordinance was later converted into an Act of the Provincial Assembly of Sindh Province. The new University was named as "Mehran University of Engineering and Technology". Initially, the Additional Campus as well the Mehran University was established in the City of Nawabshah, necessitating shifting of the most of the infrastructure from Jamshoro. However, in 1979, the Act of the University was amended and the seat of the University was retained at Jamshoro, while a constituent College titled ' Mehran University College of Engineering and Technology' was maintained at Nawabshah, to cater for the needs of the engineering education of upper Sindh.. The Mehran University College of Engineering and Technology, Nwasbahsh, has also become an independent University in 1996, which has been renamed as 'Quaid-e-Awam University of Engineering Sciences and Technology'. Consequently, Mehran University of Engineering and Technology now exists only at Jamshoro, having territorial jurisdiction over the Hyderabad and Mirpurkahs Divisions of Sindh Province. Nevertheless, few seats are still reserved for the candidates coming from other divisions of Sindh Province.

The number of students admitted to the First Year classes of all the under-graduate disciplines is 576 out of which 537 candidates are admitted from Sindh Province, including Karachi Division, according to a precisely calculated ratio of population and other considerations. 21 applicants are admitted from other parts of Pakistan while 18 seats are reserved for the foreigners. The detailed distribution of the seats is given in Section-6 of this Prospectus.

Most of the laboratories and workshops of the teaching departments are properly equipped and practical as well as demonstrational training is imparted to the students wherever applicable. Continuous efforts are ongoing to upgrade these facilities for the practical training and new equipment is acquired for this purpose. Additionally, training to the concerned staff is also organized within the University as well as outside. In some cases, where the training facilities are not available within the University, the students are sent to suitable institutes in Karachi or elsewhere to undergo adequate training. Every department has been provided adequate number of personal computers and e-mail and Internet facilities for the training and use of the students as well teaching staff. The postgraduate courses were started in the University in 1978 leading to M.E. Degree, initially, in three branches.

Hostel facilities are also available for about 1100 students on the campus both male and female; which are located at walking distance from the teaching departments. These hostels are equipped with necessary facilities including bathrooms, reading rooms, game rooms, dining halls, etc.

More details of the facilities available for the students are described in Chapter 5 of prospectus; which include medical care, transport, games and recreation, Library and so on.

With advanced degree programs in Banking and Finance, Management Information Systems, Computer Science and Telecommunication, we are preparing young men and women to meet the challenges of the new millennium.

MAJU is one of the most ambitious projects of The Punjab Group to date. With over two decades of experience in providing quality education to the community, the Group wished to expand its horizons in the higher educational arena. The Punjab Group had already established numerous colleges around the country, including the renowned Punjab College of Business Administration (PCBA), Punjab College of Computer Sciences (PICS) and Punjab Colleges of Law, Commerce and Science. The Punjab Group was also honored when the University of Central Punjab became the first private university to be awarded degree-granting status by the Government of the Punjab in 2002. More recently, the Group has taken on the challenge of establishing a school system which caters from Playgroup to A’ Level. Resource Academia was launched in 2003 and now boasts three campuses in Lahore; a Pre-Junior School, Senior Branch, and a newly inaugurated A’ Level campus. The Islamabad campus currently goes up to O’ Level and plans are underway to extend the program to A’ Level. The Punjab Group can proudly say, it covers education from Playgroup up to Ph.D. level under its umbrella.

NED University of Engineering & Technology(Sindh)

The NED University of Engineering and technology is the oldest institution now in Pakistan for teaching and turning out Graduate Engineers; it is in the Public Sector – i.e. Government owned – having begun initially as an Engineering College in 1922 established by subscriptions from private donors. The University retains the initials in honour of the principal donor for that College – Nadirshaw Edulji Dinshaw in its name! Like other such Government owned institutions in developing countries, it has had over the years to overcome various handicaps ranging from shortage of funds to “brain drain” of Faculty Members as well as students. Nevertheless, because of its transparent admission policy which has established its reputation over the years, it attracts the best students – including even some foreigners lacking resources for seeking admission in Universities of developed countries!

This University presently offers undergraduate programmes in nineteen (19) Engineering disciplines along with one each in Architecture and in Information Technology. It is also presently offering twenty-seven (27) Master’s level postgraduate programmes; this number is also increasing each year. At present, the programmes for Doctoral studies are restricted to Faculty Members; this university is implementing its wide-ranging Development Programme in which its demands for Faculty Development are of such intensity that they leave no room for offering Doctorate programmes for external candidates.

The independent Internet Facility installed in June 1999 was the first of its kind – making this University an independent Internet Service Provider for internal usage. This facility has since been augmented by the PERN facility provided by the Higher Education Commission and supplemented by the portal facility for usage by all its Departments. This University has also been one of – if not the very first – in establishing liaison with industries, public utilities and companies engaged in Consultancy and Construction activities. These efforts have greatly facilitated and also extended its scope for students obtaining gainful employment almost immediately after graduation. This University can thus – without pretending to possess the ability to provide its students the same facilities as in developed countries – certainly offer them intellectual challengers in competing with students possessing abilities of level equal to if not sometimes higher than those in developed countries.

HISTORY
During the post 1965 war analysis Pakistan Navy felt the need of establishing a Special force, which could be used for covert offensive operations against enemy shore based facilities and the units at sea or in harbours. As a consequence, training volunteers for frogman / special Ops formed a new offensive arm for Pakistan Navy in 1966. Shortly after raising, the capabilities of this elite group were multiplied through the acquisition of midgets, chariots and combat/ auxiliary diving equipment. The training of volunteers selected from all branches of the Navy for Special Service Group (Navy) was conducted on the lines of British Special Boat Squadron (SBS), British Special Air Services (SAS) and US Navy SEALS.
