he Higher Education Commission (HEC) has announced the ranking of Pakistani universities on the basis of quality teaching and research, during a press conference held yesterday.

A statement issued by HEC said that the primary purpose of the ranking exercise is to share with the general public a comprehensive data on the key issues that determine the state of higher education in a particular institution.

Institutions established after December 2008 as well as distance education universities are excluded from the ranking lists.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Laghari, Chairperson HEC,  said that ranking is a quality indicator and this information will help shed light on key indicators of higher education institutions in Pakistan to allow students, parents, potential employers and all other stakeholders to make informed decisions regarding higher education institutions.

Ranking criteria for the universities include student intake as well as graduates produced at BS, MS and PhD levels, number of qualified faculty members, student-teacher ratio, quality of research produced and published in journals of international repute, physical and technological infrastructure, international collaborations, resource generation and sports facilities.

The universities have been ranked specifically by category/area of specialization to make it logical. The sector-wise sorting has not been done to provide equal reflection to both the public and private sector institutions. Universities can only be comparable within the assigned category, comparisons to be made among different categories based on the above list will not be logical.

1-Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad

2-Pakistan Institute of Engineering and Applied Sciences

5-University of The Punjab, Lahore
