2019 respectively.
Dr Muhammad Afzal, the chairman of Admission Committee, said that the online system was designed
and backed by Web Development Cell (WDC) of the university, keeping in mind the exposure and
capacity of the students from less-privileged areas so that candidates from any background could easily
complete the admission process. There will be no compromise on the quality and transparency in
admission process, he added.
“We had set up a Facilitation Centre to satisfy queries of the students, visitors and alumni related to
admissions, academics, examinations and accounts made through phone calls, in person visits and
emails through one window operation, he further added.”
Dr Qaiser Abbas, Director Information Technology Center informed that the nominal difference in the
signups and submission of complete applications for admissions proved that the online system offered
students convenient, efficient and reliable access to the admissions.
“Unlike other universities, which either outsources the software development work or buys developed
software against huge price, we developed the comprehensive online software by ourselves – thanks to
fine expertise of the developers at our Web Development Cell,” he said, adding that that the Admission
Facilitation Team received and solved about 4000 correction requests and queries.
Expressing his determination to digitize the campus, Dr Abbas said that the online admission system
marks beginning of the automation of the overall working of the University. We have plans to develop
inclusive student portal and software for various offices and departments to increase efficiency,
transparency and speed of the operations, he added.
It would not be out of place to mention here that the University Facilitation Center will continue to
provide its services regarding academic regulations, student records, programs, calendars, examinations,
advisory services, issuance and verification of documents and scholarships throughout the year.
