Asia Pacific Quality Network (APQN) comprising quality assurance agencies of the entire Asia – Pacific Region has given APQN’s Best / Model Internal Quality Assurance Award for 2014 to National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) during an impressive ceremony held at Hanoi, Vietnam on March 7, 2014. It is a matter of great honour for the Nation and the University as well as its parent Ministry (Ministry of Science & Technology) and Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan.
The award has been given in recognition of the strict enforcement of its quality assurance regime by the University, choice selection of quality people, and the development and implementation of best practices, along with the application of technology, in all its activities, as specified by HEC. The credit for this honour goes to the faculty, staff and students of the university and the relentless support provided by MoST and HEC in developing and maintaining a culture of quality at NUST. It goes without saying that the emphasis by HEC on quality through the quality assurance mechanism is now bearing fruit and Pakistani Universities are gaining prominence at the international level.
