The University of Lahore was established in 1999 with a vision to build a world class prestigious institution offering innovative and high quality education, unique learning environment, state of the art facilities and infrastructure. The University was granted degree awarding status by Government of the Punjab in 2002. Since its inception as Chartered University, dedicated efforts of the Board of Governors, Ibadat Educational Trust, teaching faculty and University management brought it to the level of an internationally recognized university in Pakistan. The University of Lahore has been ranked among the top 550-600 universities of the world and 171-180 in Asian University (QS & Times Higher Education Supplement). Moreover Regulatory Bodies of the Government of Pakistan that is Medical and Dental Council, Pakistan Engineering Council, Pakistan Nursing Council and Pharmacy Council of Pakistan have accredited its professional programs.
I firmly believe that the role of universities in the twenty-first century in Pakistan must respond to phenomenal changes unleashed by rapid advancement in Science and technology for the economic development of the country as well as the challenge posed by globalization. We are already visualizing about the future of higher education in the next millennium and making efforts for this purpose. I am confident that our University will acquire this prime objective with professional competence, commitment and dedication of management and highly qualified teaching faculty.
The University of Lahore is playing a significant role in the lives of thousands of young students and graduates of Medicine, Dentistry, Engineering, Allied Health Science, Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Bio-chemistry, Environmental Science, Business studies, Information Technology, Computer Sciences, Art and Social Sciences. I am glad that Researchers and scholars of the University are working as a team for contributing towards building up a positive social capital for the benefit of our civil society. We do this by creating best ideas and practices for dissemination amongst students in classrooms and laboratories. I welcome knowledge seekers and professionals to experience the enjoyable and congenial learning environment at UOL. I am sure that you will find desired values in our programs.
