About PAF-IAST

Introduction

The Institute aspires to be an exemplary national leader in creating effective skill-oriented education to prepare diverse, industrious and career-ready graduates for success in a global and interdependent society.

Pakistan gravely lacks in adequately trained and skilled workforce in the production sector. This has been a major factor contributing to in our low exports and poor economic growth. The situation has seen only marginal improvement in recent years. While our National Education Policy recognizes the importance of technical education at tertiary level for providing technical skills towards fulfilment of industry requirements, much remains to be done to enable Pakistan to realize its true potential. The secret to developing a strong knowledge economy lies in the ability of nations to be able to manufacture and export high technology goods. For this, we must have top class engineering universities that can produce students that can meet the new challenges posed by the 4th industrial revolution with the accompanying emerging and disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence, next generation genomics, industrial biotechnology, energy storage systems, 3D printing, new materials and others.

“Skilling Pakistan” is the most pressing need of the hour. Human resource development and skill training in tandem are the essential elements to boost the key growth sectors such as manufacturing, information and communication technologies, medical technologies, core engineering areas, as well as the construction field.

Pak-Austria Fachhochschule: Institute of Applied Science and Technology is a leap forward to assist the government of Pakistan in acquiring the much-needed pool of quality human resource in order to enhance the prosperity of Pakistan through developing a knowledge economy. This institute is a collaborative public sector venture in partnership with premier Austrian and Chinese universities for quality education, academic excellence, technology transfer, research accomplishments, and for developing a state-of-the-art technology park where new products for commercial use will be developed.

PAF-IAST offers unique opportunities to Pakistani youth to study at an emerging center of excellence on their way to become leaders and entrepreneurs in various growth sectors. From the very outset of their academic career at this institute, they will be exposed to first-hand rewarding industry experience This, in turn, will enable them to contribute significantly to the national economy and prosperity of the society at large.

Globalization and the information and communication revolution have greatly impacted world’s production methods and its structure. Today, knowledge is the one of the key features between developed and underdeveloped economies. Pakistan is lacking in having an adequately trained and skilled work force in production sector which keeping us behind from the others. It is evident, to become the developed economy, it has become a must to invest in and leverage its engineering sector. Pakistan must take advantage of highest percentage of youth who can become a trained workforce and help the economy of the country.

Pakistan’s National Education Policy recognizes importance of technical education at tertiary level, which is not enough to cater market needs. As of the today’s facts, a concept is laid down to establish Institute with the collaboration of foreign partners, to enhance the quality of higher education in engineering, science and technology, and simultaneously to stimulate high technology industry in Pakistan.

Pak – Austria Fachhochschule Institute of Applied Science and Technology is established with the collaboration and guidelines of Austrian Universities and as well top ranked Chinese’s universities, and adopt their model, which will offer four-degree program in Engineering and Sciences. This purpose-built campus is fully equipped with all facilities such as smart class rooms, high-tech labs at international standards, PhD faculty, student activity center, library, foreign faculty guest house, student hostels, sports grounds, each faculty block has its own auditorium, campus wi-fi, and many more.

The Institute’s faculty is trained at foreign universities and learned teaching and research methodologies, which will give an edge to students to gain knowledge which will be quite different from conventional techniques. Our students will get chance to study their last year degree program at foreign universities and also to obtain degree as well too.

This institute is designed in such a manner which will give different look from local institutions, and during it’s designing the foreign partners were fully involved, visited Pakistan at various occasion, and also paly vital role in the hiring of the faculty.

I am sure this institute will be a great facility for students and to provide best platform for obtaining their degrees, which will help them to linked with relevant industry from start of their program, and better job opportunities.
