Higher Education needs overhaul: Dr. Nizam

By: Samreen IlyaS

Lahore: Known educationist and former chair- person Punjab Higher Education Commission Prof. Dr. Mohammad Nizamud din has said that despite of experimentation and all-out efforts, the higher education of the country was unable to produce graduates at a par to the national needs for development. 

Our education system is adding to the unemployed youth of the nation due to lack of skilled/technical training and merely theory based education system. Dr. Nizam, who is currently serving as Pro- Rector University of Central Punjab,  was addressing a thought-provoking session as guest speaker at Maulana Zafar ali Khan trust. Dr. Khawja al-Qama, Prof. Dr. Shafiq Jullandhry, Rauf tahirand, Dr. Shabbir Sarwar were also present.

“Unfortunately, no single consensus definition of word ‘graduate’ has been made in the country as students doing two year graduation after intermediate as well as those completing four year of education after intermediate were claiming as graduates.”

“Education system in Pakistan was not changed with the changing times, HEC introduced BS four year program but two year BA/BSc and Ma/MSc degrees were also continue. Now, they have decided to do away with it.

We also introduced two year associate degree program in four colleges, which is now being expanded to other colleges of the country. Dr. Nizamuddin said that time to time no prominent required changes were made in education since the inception of Pakistan as it is still based on colonial era system.

UK itself had made many changes as per modern requirements but our students are seen more interested in receiving degrees rather than developing skills, also they want jobs but opportunities are not more in this country.

Interest of parents and students is increasing in higher education, also universities are increasing in Pakistan but even then future of graduates is not clear. Students lack interest in libraries due to which quality of education is low. So in my opinion, it is really important to have skill besides degrees.

 Civil servant are trained before service but teachers are not trained today although not long time ago teachers were trained by 10-15 BEd and Masters Degree holders. For selection of educationists across the province, B.Ed and M.Ed degree holders were considered inferior as compared to MSc degree holders, although they were trained teachers. Former vice chancellor BZU Multan Dr. Khawja al-Qama while expressing his pessimism remarked that: “Our national political leaders have no educational vision, which is one of the main reasons of educational policy problems. Earlier, Dr. Shafiq Jullandhry gave a detailed introduction of Dr. Nizam mentioning his decades long contribution. Mr. Rauf tahir conducted the discussion in a very light and lively manner. Dr. Mujahid Mansoori and Dr. Azmat Rasool were also present.
