Reviews: Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science and Technology Islamabad



FUUAST holds the distinction of being the first Pakistani university which aims to have Urdu as its official language for medium of instruction and teaching. Although the mission sounds great but so far university management is unable to show any great progress as other private universities with same age have shown. From campus to faculty, from management to administration, from facilities to staff everything needs a lot of improvements. University management is crowded by political interests so they are not really focusing on their real objective which to provide excellent education by promotion Urdu. Administration is not putting its cent percent to make studying at FUUAST a memorable experience for students as they are not providing the best of the facilities which are a must for a good study environment.

One thing university management should consider that is they are preaching a very unique idea of teaching in Urdu which has a huge potential. But in today's job market English is the main requirement so FUUAST graduates have to face this basic difficulty to get a job and if the knowledge they got is also not competitive with other English medium private universities then they will have to fight more harder to compete with other students in job market. So if University improves its "everything" then there is a huge potential for its mission.

Now lets have a quick review of different aspects of university.

History:     The University was established on 13th November 2002 under . The university started functions in November 2002 by taking over two federal government colleges namely Federal Urdu Science College, Karachi and Federal Urdu Arts College , Karachi .

Basic Information:       Currently university have departments of Economics, Business Administration, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics and Urdu. University is located in G-6 sector of Islamabad. 

Student Talk:       I don't get chance to have a face to face conversation with university students but i got their feedback on an online survey. Students are not too much happy with the university overall and they are very concerned about the politicization in university. They are also not very happy with the campus building.

Facilities:      As I have mentioned above that students are simply not happy with the facilities provided to them because there is no air conditioning on the campus, no grounds for students for extra curricular activities, cafeteria quality is very low, class rooms are in pathetic condition. Science laboratories are a bit better than other facilities. So I ranked the facilities in FUUAST as Poor.

Faculty:      University's faculty is a blend of masters, M Phils and PhDs but most of the faculty members are M Phil. As I said above that there is a lot of politicization in the university so teachers are also not focused on their real job. They are not very much cooperative with students.

Market Worth:     There is no special market worth for University's graduates as they have to fight on two things first on their quality of education and secondly on their medium of instruction being Urdu.
