PESHAWAR, Sep 09 (APP): The Vice Chancellors of public and private sector universities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa unanimously showed concern over the recent notification issued by the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) with regard to devising the Framework for Entry Test relating to admission to the engineering programs.
The meeting was held Friday under the Chairmanship of Prof Dr. Iftikhar Hussain, Vice Chancellor, UET Peshawar, and attended (in-person and online) by the Vice Chancellors of public and private sector universities, members of PEC Governing Body and senior officials of Educational Testing and Evaluation Agency (ETEA) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The meeting urged the PEC to withdraw the notification as it could impact engineering education in the future, adding, that it did not engage all the stakeholders and thus lacked due process of careful review.
The meeting further decided that any change in the existing PEC policy would be carried out through due engagement of stakeholders.
The Vice Chancellors also vowed to continuously strive for ensuring quality improvement to enhance the professional and practical skills of the engineering graduates so that they keep pace with the world.
They urged the PEC to ensure that a suitable mechanism is followed by involving the members of the governing body and vice chancellors in all such matters.
