I believe that the future parameter of success of any university shall not be evaluated through the number of Graduates but by the employment opportunities created by the graduates of that particular institution. The job market of Pakistan has saturated and the youth graduating are becoming a weak link of the country instead of becoming the country’s strength. The World has turned into a Global Village and any student having a smart phone can come up with the idea of an Application that can make millions just in a blink. I want my students to see the link between the theoretical knowledge and how it is implemented in the practical world.
That’s is why the university has taken the institution of Innovation and Incubation Center so that the enrolled students and alumni can have hands-on experience on how businesses are setup on actual grounds. I urge my students to take full advantage of our mixed use incubator and I want them to enjoy while learning from this experience.

While adjusting to the demands of future and to expand career opportunities for University’s graduates; commercialization of academic research has become the core focus of institution as just mere work of teaching and research shall not be sufficient for thriving in this highly competitive era. Knowledge and technology transfer activities have become the hall mark of leading institutions around the world. And following the footsteps of these best academic institutions the University has set up the department of “Innovation and Incubation Center”, that will help the researchers by all possible means to implement their ideas on the practical grounds’ will provide nesting facilities to the startups and will be the first institution in Pakistan that shall be working on academic commercialization.
