Vice Chancellor Message
Welcome to Hazara University (HU), Mansehra)! We thank you for visiting us in person or through our website/Social media.
Transformation from school and college set-up into a university marks the beginning of a focused yet ceaseless endeavor. Choosing a university for higher education needs great effort and care. It is important to consider any university keeping in view - the aptitude, relevance, scope, and career prospects. I feel happy to tell you about the academic, research and professional culture of the Hazara University that provides a balanced combination of attributes one may consider in the choice of seat for higher and professional education. The management, faculty, and students at Hazara University are engaged in an endless endeavor to set new standards and seek new horizons in higher education and to produce professionals with a new orientation who can stimulate and lead the industrial transformation of the country. The diverse community at HU of ambitious professionals with student-centric teaching approach, congenial atmosphere, outcome-based learning environment and supportive arrangements for co-curricular and extracurricular activities which motivate students to learn and grow in academics as well as in professional life. The location of Hazara University is HU is highly attractive not only because of the rich history but also because of the CPEC. The CPEC is a multi-dimensional initiative for construction of energy, communication, and port infrastructure to build up the economic acquaintances between the states. The Sino-Pak economic corridor (CPEC) is an important agreement having the potential to redesign South Asian geopolitics. The university is linking two historical (CPEC and KKH) routes making it unique in nature. Keeping in view these developments, the university has launched a number of matching academic programmes such as Artificial intelligence, Tourism & Hospitality and Conservations.
The University is fully aware about the importance of Research and Development (R&D) in higher education. Therefore, the university has planned major research facilities having state of art equipment, environment and staff. The Centralized R&D Lab is not only providing support not only to the research scholars of the university but can also support researchers of other universities and industries.
Following the vision, HU has entered into academic collaborations with many highly reputed academic and research institutions around the world, thus enabling the faculty and students to have access to their research facilities. With financial support from HEC and other funding agencies, our faculty and graduate students carry research activities in the technologically developed world by physically visiting these institutions.
Graduating from HU means growing curiosity, innovation, creativity, and excellence. We not only emphasize on critical thinking and intellectual analysis but also nurture academic excellence, promote social inclusiveness, foster a sense of civility, protect academic freedom, cultivate individual integrity, instill academic honesty, advocate accountability, encourage ethical standards, allow enriching learning opportunities, and try to direct you to a gratifying career by teaching you to live by example. I hope you enjoy your studies at the University.
