HEC Engineering Universities Standard
Higher Education Commission has taken the step against 14 engineering universities in consultation with the Pakistan Engineering Council. There are some of the engineering universities, which are not meeting the international standards in engineering.
HEC took the step against these universities in order to maintain the standards of teaching at the engineering institutes and universities at the international level after Pakistan becoming the member state of the Washington Accord. The issue is being discussed whether these universities may be warned to improve the standard of education in the engineering field. if these engineering institutes do not improve their quality of education, then strict action will be taken against them.
Pakistan became the member of the Washington Accord along with 18 other states. These member countries want to improve the quality of education and training to their aspirants. This forum has targeted the high performance and standards at the international level in engineering. The degrees of the candidates of the member states of Washington Accord will be acceptable in about 60 countries of the world. Pakistan is the third member state after Malaysia and Turkey.
