  1. Establishment of KFUEIT RYK, Phase-1 (Revision)

Khwaja Fareed University of Engineering & Information Technology was established in 2014 under The Punjab Assembly passed Act (Act XVI of 2014) for KFUEIT on 29th May 2014. In the beginning, classes of BS Electrical Engineering, BS Mechanical Engineering, BS Computer Science and BS Information Technology were started in Government College of Technology, Rahim Yar Khan. It moved to its own campus in January 2016.

Initial PC-1 Phase-1 of worth PKR 3,847 Million was prepared and submitted by UET Lahore in April 2014 to Higher Education Department. It mainly included purchase of land, physical infrastructure development such as the construction of 6x academic buildings, hostels for students and faculty, common facilities, residences, external development, horticulture and procurement of lab equipment, books, furniture, and transport facilities.

Due to some important factors such as an increase in the cost of development and quantities, revised rates of bi-annuals, budget constraints, increase in material cost, a revision of Phase-1 was submitted on April 2019 against PKR. 6,108.31 Million, which is under revision phase.

  1. Establishment of KFUEIT RYK, Phase-2

As KFUEIT is a multi-billion project, therefore it is divided into phases. The new infrastructure development requirements that are included in Phase-2 were either not included, or left over in Phase-1 and not sufficient with the increase in the number of students.

Phase-2 was submitted against PKR 2,000 Million in May 2019. Funds amounting Rs. 370 Million has been allocated in the ADP 2019-20 by the Government of the Punjab, against estimated cost of Rs. 2,000 Million for Phase-2 to provide additional facilities. Whereas the remaining amount PKR 1,630 Million has been projected in 2020-21 and 2021-22 respectively.

Likewise Phase-1, Phase-2 will mainly include physical infrastructure development. A summary of Phase-2 is as follow:

  1. Faculty Development Programme (FDP): FDP will produce 250 - 350 Ph.D. qualified individuals in the next 5 years with the use of 50 international scholars in order to fulfill the high-quality faculty requirements of KFUEIT and other educational, research and development organizations in Punjab as well as throughout Pakistan.
  2. Endowment Fund: Public sector institutions like KFUEIT requires financial assistance to sustain their operations. Most of the public sector universities are highly dependent on the annual grant provided by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan. Keeping in view, KFUEIT prepared a well thought out Business Plan under Endowment Fund if it is seeded by a grant of PKR 2,000 Million from the Government of Punjab.

This project was submitted in March 2019. LTS funding if implemented faithfully, will ensure the long term sustainability of KFUEIT and will enhance entrepreneurship opportunities, more industrial collaborations and contribution in filing patents, etc.

 

  1. Provision of Necessary Infrastructure and Supporting Facilities for High-Quality Education at KFUEIT, Rahim Yar Khan

The PC-1 for Provision of Necessary Infrastructure was submitted to HEC in August 2018. The objective of the proposed PC-1 is to strengthen KFUEIT, RYK by providing additional required physical infrastructure and facilities essential for higher education and left out during Phase-1 due to limited funds.

These include infrastructure consisting of high-voltage electrification work, 2.5 MW On-grid Solar Power System, miscellaneous items such as IT networking within campus and 200 computers for computer labs.

Laboratory equipment for new disciplines such as Chemical Engineering, Agricultural Engineering and Food Science & Technology are required to provide the essential missing facilities and to accommodate the foreseen growth in students, faculty and other staff numbers.

Research and Innovation are among the main drivers of higher education development that leads to economic growth. Research and Innovation Centre is the appetite and desire of the students to innovate and to do something entirely new.

PC-1 for the Establishment of Centre for Research and Innovation was submitted to HEC in March 2019 against PKR 2,323 Million for their necessary actions. Summary for the proposed PC-1 is as follow:

At present KFUEIT has 274 acres of land but it aims to acquire an adjacent area of 311 acres of additional land in the near future. KFUEIT plan to acquire additional land is to minimize security risk, as the current land area is irregular in shape which increases security and surveillance cost. Moreover, the additional land adjacent to KFUEIT campus is agricultural land and the value of the land is affordable which will certainly increase with the passage of time. Additional land will be utilized for further expansion of academic buildings, hostels for faculty and students, residences along with admin block, student center, grand mosque, central library, auditorium, botanical garden, solar power plant, grid station, agricultural research farm, technology park, waste treatment facility (anaerobic digester), dairy research farm, museum for heritage, science & technology, indoor sports complex, gym and other developmental projects.
