Basic Education begins with being able to read and write but the Higher Education refines and polishes individuals and prepares them to play an effective role in the cultural, industrial, political and socio-economic development of a country. Therefore, importance of Higher Education cannot be over emphasized as it is imperative for socio-economic development of a country. It is satisfying and promising to know that private sector is coming up to supplement and complement of efforts of the Government for the promotion of Higher Education in the country in general and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in particular. Private Sector Institutions generate a sense of competition required for quality Education.
It is a matter of immense pleasure for me to know that CECOS University of Information Technology & Emerging Sciences, Peshawar established through Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ordinance No. XXI of 2001, has since been declared by Higher Education Commission as Category ‘W3’ and is playing a very vital role in imparting quality Education in the disciplines of Engineering, Architecture, Computer and Management Sciences.
I would however impress upon the Management of CECOS University to take all necessary measures aimed at further improving the quality of Education with focus on state of the art research and technology development to be counted as one of the world class Universities. With sound planning, hard work, qualified and competent faculty, you will certainly achieve goals and mission of becoming the greatest seat of learning and center of excellence. The Ministry of Higher Education expect private Sector Educational Institutions to focus on sacred goal of public service by offering quality Education at affordable cost.
Wishing all the students of CECOS University success and bright future.
