Pakistan Navy with its inherent flair for disciplined training and over 30 years of experience in the field of education had a vision to help build an educated and prosperous PAKISTAN in the 21st century. The vision was to consolidate all its efforts to create an education system that would be capable of providing state of the art facilities for quality education to the population of Pakistan with out any prejudice of class, creed, color or domicile.
This vision became a reality on 7 Feb 2000, when BAHRIA UNIVERSITY was established through the Presidential Ordinance No. V of 2000.
