It is indeed a great pleasure and privilege for having an opportunity to lead BRAINS a premier educational institution. Having made a humble beginning in 1993, BRAINS has no doubt played a pivotal role in the development of IT education in Pakistan in general and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in particular. As of today BRAINS Institute 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, it has passed the test of time and got the status of a Degree Awarding Institute (DAI) in 2016 upon its fulﬁllment of the rigorous requirements of the Higher Education Commission (HEC),Higher education Regulatory Authority( HERA )and the Pakistan Engineering Council(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 Institute 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 eight years of services to its credit in private sectors and a large number of Alumni, BRAINS Institute aims to grow and develop its program into a full ﬂedged independent Chartered University in the very near future. I wish success to BRAINS Institute’s Faculty and Students.
