Prof. Dr. Riaz A. Khattak
My dear students, members of civil community and fellow colleagues.
Assalam-O-Alaikum and welcome to BRAINS.
It is indeed a great pleasure and privilege for having an opportunity to lead BRAINS an outstanding older institute. Brains Institute initially established in 1993, undoubtedly one of the pioneering institute in private sector. BRAINS imparts degree programs in IT, Computer Science, Management Sciences and Software Engineering in addition to B.Tech (Civil, Electrical and Petroleum). Successfully going through a highly tough competitive environment, passed the test of time and got the status of a Degree Awarding Institute (DAI) in 2016. As by today it enjoys accreditation of HEC, HERA and striving to get enrollment in Civil Engineering after formal approval by PEC.
Private Sector Institutions face competition within themselves and as well as with low costs Public Sector Universities. Education is becoming expensive day by day while quality education has become even more expensive. Therefore, the challenges in higher education management are increasing with time.
For a good University, it is imperative to have Spacious Infrastructure (Labs, Class rooms & offices), well qualified and devoted faculty members and seasoned Top management. BRAINS has the resolve and determination to have it all to become and stay competitive not only in KP but on national level as well. Its location in the heart of the main junctions between various parts of Peshawar provides excellent opportunity to students from the surrounding areas.
As it is said that the world has become a global village, similarly in the era of IT, BRAINS has great potential and prospects to attain the height it deserves. Having twenty six years of services to its credit in private sectors with over 20,000 Alumni, BRAINS must grow and develop its program into a full fledged independent Chartered University in the very near future.
Having 43 years experience in higher education management, I have accepted the offer of Mr. Zafarullah Khan, RECTOR BRAINS to lead this institution. I cherish and value his trust and confidence in me. By doing so, I simultaneously accepted the challenges associated with this job. Therefore, I declare that I will make every effort to transform BRAINS into a great seat of learning and the dreams and vision of the Rector will be materialized. IN SHA ALLAH
