The university has expressed contentment and honor for being acknowledged globally for its efforts.
In contrast, the Senate Standing Committee on Science and Technology has expressed concerns about the lowered world ranking of the COMSATS University.
The university ranks between 800 and 1000 globally and is at the 171st position in Asia. Under the chairmanship of Senator Sardar Muhammad Shafiq Tareen, the committee discussed the university’s campuses and staff, and its Quetta campus that is under construction.
The meeting was attended by Senator Engineer Rukhsana Zuberi, Senator Sana Jamali, and Senator Liaqat Khan Tarakai, along with senior officers of the Ministry and other concerned officials.
The committee members suggested that the university should establish its campuses in rural settings. The committee said that the provincial quota may be implemented in COMSATS University and that the admission could include a special quota for students from Balochistan.
While talking about the establishment of the COMSATS University campus in Quetta, the committee was informed that the university expects to enroll almost 3500 students and aims to provide higher education facilities to students from Quetta, Pishin, Ziarat, Mastung, and Chagi.
