  • It should be a matter of serious concern for HEC as well as Pakistani universities that not one of them is in the top 395 rankings. PIEAS is at 397 and NUST is at 417. Pakistani universities need to improve the quality of their faculty, their student intake, their curriculum, and the quality of their PhD research before they can make it to the top 100 universities. That will take at least a decade if not more. But HEC and universities have to start now to achieve this in 10 years or more.
