Quality Enhancement Cell
It has become an imperative in recent years for higher education institutions to demonstrate the efficacy of their academic programs in delivering high-quality education that has a beneficial impact on stakeholders. This has contributed to the introduction of methods by the Higher Education Commission to determine the quality of academic programs.
It was agreed at the NQAC (National Quality Assurance Commission) meeting that Quality Enhancement Cells would be formed at all universities with the establishment of the Quality Assurance Agency at the Higher Education Commission to improve the internal quality assurance mechanism with a special emphasis on the quality of higher education in order to fill the gap between the prevailing and desired quality education status.

Malir University is a continually growing institution dedicated primarily to serve the community with practical teaching, innovative ideas and civic development. With the enthusiasm to put the best standard practices towards the community, the university encourages evidence-based research and learning, ethical personal and social responsibility, critical thinking, and lifelong learning for students and Team. The evidence-based education and quality standard practice in teaching and learning strategy have been designed to facilitate independent and collaborative knowledge building. The objective of the QEC initiative is to embed modern learning strategies into courses across the curriculum for all students, and maintain rigorous quality standards for teachers, thus creating a student-faculty balanced culture of learning. Our academic programs ensure students will be taught the most current knowledge and develop adequate new world skills. Moreover, our academic staff’s teaching experience and personal research are cohesive in the content of the program of study, translating new research and element into the class. These tools will prepare our students and faculty with all the credentials needed for the academic and professional growth of any institution and to embark on and cultivate quality-driven industry and society. Currently, as an emerging institution, we are more keen to develop our human resources by providing quality training and capacity-building programs, engaging them in quality enhancement strategies, and preparing them for maintaining quality assurance by self-assessments and transformations.
