Today it is truer than ever before that the law of
the land is "survival of the fittest". Third world countries
including Pakistan face the same situation... even darker than the
European countries when they were in dark ages. It is often said
"Well Europe was in dark ages while the Islamic Empire was
thriving". As a matter of fact it was Europe itself, which came
out of the dark ages through Renaissance.
The period that began in Italy about 1300 A.D.
dawned later in other European countries and ended during 1600 A.D. is
known as the Renaissance.
Renaissance is a French word meaning
The period received this name because of a rebirth
of interest among Italian scholars in the learning and arts. There was
reawakening of classical concern for beauty, for man and his destiny
During that era Europeans developed new scientific
ideas and inventions, produced new literature and art and discovered
new land and trade routes. They began to think about man and this
world in entire different ways. One must understand the movement of
the Renaissance if one wants to know why there is a first world and a
third world. It is not only exploitation of the one by the other but
also the enlightenment of one through another. We have brought that
"Renaissance" to Pakistan by the name of "BIZTEK".
Affiliated with an internationally reputed Girne
American University of northern Cyprus, BIZTEK is a dedicated effort
towards redefining certain standards in higher education. A very
strong emphasis is given on research and development. Owing to the
very nature of the overseas affiliation and that too with a university
of global vision, BIZTEK has an environment to facilitate the birth
and growth of new ideas. Students are treated as scholars and their
expression is well regarded whether it may be in finance, marketing or
web page designing. The education at BIZTEK is a blend of
conventionalism and "free thinking". Students are not only
required to take courses in their respective majors. but are also made
to take courses in Humanities, Sociology and fine arts. Thus
cultivating in them well rounded, refined and sensitive individuals.
Individuals who have their fingers on the nerves of future.
Individuals who can rise and shine among the leaders in their
respective fields, individuals who are strong enough at the same time
to not only uplift themselves but also their countries, their nations
and ultimately the entire human race. As the great scholar Sir Syed
Ahmed Khan created "Mohammedan Scientific Society", BIZTEK
has been created by very well experienced educationists and
academicians as the first step towards the Renaissance in the Higher
Education of Pakistan.
