Projects Approved under HEC Technology Development Fund Start Yielding ResultsProjects Approved under HEC Technology Development Fund Start Yielding Results<p style="text-align:justify;">Islamabad, September 17, 2018: The projects approved under Technology Development Fund (TDF), an initiative of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) to provide financial and technical support for development of products and prototypes, have started yielding outcomes.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Under the TDF, so far 126 projects have been approved for funding. The projects awarded in the FY 2016-17 have entered the execution phase and are progressing towards the goals envisaged. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">One of these projects entitled, "Transforming Biomass Ash Residues into Commercialisable Products" by Dr. Basit Yameen from Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) and his industrial partner, Dr. Amir Said, from Bulleh Shah Packaging (BSP) Pvt Ltd. has started pilot production.

HEC Issues Guideline on Universities Undergraduate Degree Programmes NomenclatureHEC Issues Guideline on Universities Undergraduate Degree Programmes Nomenclature<p style="text-align:justify;">Islamabad, September 15, 2018: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has instructed all universities and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) not to use title of "Doctor" in their BS degrees nomenclature without getting prior approval from respective National Curriculum Review Committees (NCRCs) constituted by HEC. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">A letter issued to Vice Chancellors, Rectors and Heads of HEIs, reveals that  some of the universities and HEIs are offering undergraduate degree programmes with title of Doctor in their nomenclature without taking approval from NCRCs which is misleading the students, their parents and employers at large who request HEC for clarifications. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"All the universities/ HEIs are hereby directed to stop further admissions in such programmes and withdraw their advertisements in newspapers as well as on their websites and social media platforms with immediate effect," the letter underlines. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The letter mentions few degree titles as Doctor of Dietetics and Nutritional Sciences, Doctor of Optometry, Doctor of Medical Laboratory Sciences and Medical Imaging Doctor, etc. which will not be recognised by HEC, whereas HEC has approved curriculum and nomenclature of the degree title, Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT), a five-year degree programme. These curricula can only be taught in those universities which have relevant faculty, infrastructure, required labs and attached hospitals for clinical practices. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The letter further states that HEC expects universities to pay utmost attention and conscious efforts in ensuring complete observance of all applicable standards for providing quality education to students. "It is earnestly directed to refrain from offering such programmes which lead to ambiguity, false presumptions and confusion for students, their parents and employers", the letter reads. </p><p style="text-align:center;">===============</p>18-09-2018 07:40:39<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-15.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />http://www.hec.gov.pk/english/news/news/Pages/Guideline-Universities.aspx
