Curriculum of a subject is said to be the throbbing pulse of a nation. By
looking at the curriculum one can judge the state of intellectual
development and the state of progress of the nation. The world has turned
into a global village; new ideas and information are pouring in like a
stream. It is, therefore, imperative to update our curricula regularly by
introducing the recent developments in the relevant fields of knowledge. In exercise of the powers conferred by sub-section (1) of section 3 of the
Federal Supervision of Curricula Textbooks and Maintenance of Standards of
Education Act 1976, the Federal Government vide notification No. D773/76-
JEA (cur.), dated December 4th 1976, appointed the University Grants
Commission as the competent authority to look after the curriculum revision
work beyond class XII at the bachelor level and onwards to all degrees,
certificates and diplomas awarded by degree colleges, universities and
other institutions of higher education. In pursuance of the above decisions and directives, the Higher Education
Commission (HEC) is continually performing curriculum revision in
collaboration with universities. According to the decision of the special
meeting of Vice-Chancellor's Committee, the curriculum of a subject must be
reviewed after every 3 years. A committee of experts comprising of conveners from the National Curriculum
Revision of HEC in Basic, Applied Social Sciences and Engineering
disciplines met in April 2007 and developed a unified template to
standardize degree programs in the country to bring the national curriculum
at par with international standards, and to fulfill the needs of the local
industries. It also aimed to give a basic, broad based knowledge to the
students to ensure the quality of education. The new Bachelor (BS) degree
shall be of 4 years duration, and will require the completion of 130-136
credit hours. The engineering degree will devote 65-70% of the curriculum
towards engineering courses, and 35--30% to non Engineering courses. For the purpose of curriculum revision various committees are constituted
at the national level, comprising of senior teachers nominated by
universities, degree awarding institutions, R&D organizations, respective
accreditation councils and stake holders. The National Curriculum Revision
Committee for Telecommunication Systems in a meeting held on May 28-30,
2009 at the HEC Regional Centre, Karachi in continuation of first
preliminary meeting held on December 29 -31, 2008 at HEC Regional Centre,
Karachi, revised the curriculum in light of the unified template. The
revised draft curriculum is being circulated for implementation in the
concerned institutions. PROF. DR. ALTAF ALI G. SHAIKH
