Message from Vice-Chancellor
Quality is achieving or exceeding the expectations of the customers. For KIU, the quality of our education, research, and service delivery is a top priority. We believe that in line with the spirit of Total Quality Management (TQM), standards must be exhibited in all processes, projects, procedures, and people at KIU. The Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC) has been established at KIU in line with the guidelines of the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), Higher Education Commission (HEC), to assure quality at Main Campus and sub-campuses. Aligned with the academic and research standards provided by HEC, we are endeavoring to achieve the desired level of performance through rigorous pieces of training of the faculty & staff, internal & external reviews, and compliance to the standards provided by HEC, and accreditation councils for various professional degrees. KIU is regularly submitting the Self-Assessment Reports (SARs) and University Performance Reports (UPRs). All the professional programs at KIU are permitted and accredited by the respective accreditation council. The positive Institutional Performance Evaluation (IPE) of KIU, Review of graduate programs (MS/Ph.D.), and endorsement of our professional degrees exhibit the trust of respective bodies in our quality assurance efforts. Nevertheless, more stringent efforts are required in this direction.
Quality is never a destination, rather it is a continuous journey of hard work and commitment, by all including faculty, management, staff, and students. Our dream is to enable our students to come to the expectations of the job market. Through Outcome-Based Education (OBE), we desire that their Knowledge Skills and Attitudes are developed for employability at national and global levels.
In the end, I appreciate the hard work of the QEC team for deploying, Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) systems at KIU and advise all to provide all supports to further our quality and standards of teaching, research, and delivery of services.
Message from Director QEC
Karakoram International University has been striving to achieve and maintain the highest standards of quality education and research since its establishment in 2002. The university is making all efforts to boost its standards through teaching excellence and quality research in a highly challenging environment besides being located at a hard and remote area where researchers and scholar’s least prefer to provide their services. It due to the great efforts of Honorable Vice Chancellor and researchers that the university graduates are providing quality services throughout the country. QEC is carrying out its utmost efforts with the involvement of the entire workforce to obtain the highest possible contentment of customers. Our endeavors are to make our students use for the region particularly and for the country generally. The QEC is successfully complying with the HEC requirements particularly the Self- Assessment of all programmes, the Review of Masters/Ph.D. programmes together with NOC of all such programmes started after November 2013 and onwards and conduct of the Institutional Performance Review (IPE) visit by the HEC Review Panel. The University has also established the QECs sections in all the three sub Campuses Diamer, Ghizer, and Hunza. QEC sections have also been established in the affiliated colleges. All the undergraduate programmes of the University are accredited by the respective accreditation councils. Maintaining quality in teaching, research, learning, haring of faculty,
and purchasing quality material is a hectic and painful job but one who avoids pain does not get good results.
