Dadabhoy University and IT City, the twin projects
spread over 250 acres of land at Karachi shore near Hawks Bay scheme
is shortly to come on the ground.
The university adjacent to Pakistan's first IT city
will be providing the raw material to the IT city in the form of
quality graduates in various modern disciplines including Information
Technology and Business Management.
Hasnain Kazmi, a veteran academician is currently
taking care of the University as its Vice Chancellor told PAGE
that besides imparting the much needed education of modern concepts
especially in the IT and Business Management, the university aims to
co-relate the modern education with social and traditional values to
produce graduates with perfect human and scientific knowledge.
He said that ever growing interests in
commercialization and materialism, the developed world is fast loosing
values, which give strength to any society to stand upon. The trend
has damaged the values in our society also. The university will make
all efforts to adorn its faculties with a spirit for revival of that
spirit of human values, which was once the identity of our society.
Kazmi said that the main campus would be built
after proper engineering designs are made. For this purpose we have
assigned the task to reputed Consulting Engineering firms who are well
known internationally. The terms of reference have been finalized and
a firm has been engaged on this work. We have asked the engineering
consultants and architects to propose the various building plans and
facilities keeping in view the international standards. The main
campus would not only be unique in its architectural design but would
also be innovative. The new campus scheduled to be completed shortly.
Spread over 150 acres, Dadabhoy University will
have ample space to provide essential facilities to the students and
the faculty. The University has been planned with a view to imparting
quality education with considerable emphasis on comfort and facilities
to the students. The establishment of a Main campus of Dadabhoy
University will lead to building up of an Education City. The land is
located within the notified boundaries of Hawks Bay scheme. The road
network of the scheme has already been constructed and development of
other infrastructure facilities is under progress. The proposed
Northern Bypass, which will connect the Super Highway to the Karachi
port, passes in the vicinity of main campus of the university. The
university is committed to offer professional education tailored to
the requirements of the dynamic business sector in Pakistan, which
demand high quality professionals to accelerate rapid economic and
social growth. It will help in reducing the current large scale
unemployment and promote development and training of qualified
professionals in the areas of Computer Science, Business
Administration, Law, Health Sciences, Engineering and Technology, Arts
& Architecture, Islamic Learning, Economics and Commerce for both
national and international organizations.
