I am pleased to record my message on the occasion of launching of Distance Education Program in Sindh Province. I must say that Sarhad University has an outstanding national and international reputation, imparting quality education to a large number of students in various fields of learning, earning HEC highest rating of excellence for Engineering, Pharmcy, Computer, Management and Social Sciences, through traditional as well as distant mode of education. Lunching of Distance Education Program in Sindh Province with the permission of Government of Sindh and Higher Education Commission of Pakistan, is a praise worthy initiative of the University. Since its inception, the University has passed through numerous ups and downs, but with the grace of Almighty Allah, and untiring efforts of the managements and faculty, we not only successfully overcome the obstacles and hurdles in our way, but also kept the University on the path of progress and developement.
Today our graudates are effectively serving various Multi-National Companies and Organizations at Provincial and National level in different capacities, whereas many joined foreign universities for higher studies, the university is striving to provide relevant and purposeful education to its existing students preparing them to confront challenges in this competitive world. Sarhad University is not just addressing the issues of professional enviroment such as purpose-build campus, airconditioned classrooms, and well equipped laboratories but, more importantly, it is concentrating on the most critical issues like faculty development, curricula tailored to latest innovations and present-day demands, quality enhancement, effective teaching and evaluation and character building.
Distance Education Program is an integral part of acadamic activities of Sarhad University, which is in conformity with the provision of the charter, duly approved by the HEC and provincial Government of Kyber Pukhtunkhwa.
I assure that the Distance Education Centers of Sarhad University will try their level best to disseminate quality eduaction at the doorsteps of the prospective students of the Sindh Province.
In the year to come, I foresee Sarhad University in the top ranking Universities in Pakistan and wish a glaring future to it.

It is a matter of immense pleasure to know that Sarhad University of Science & Information Technology, Peshawar is launching its Distance Education Program in Sindh Province with the permission of Government of Sindh and Higher Education Commission of Pakistan. The initiative of Sarhad University is not only praise worthy, but also bears example for other National Universities to follow.
It is my firm belief that due to it's strong industrial based, the city of Karachi has a great potential for a higher education. The Youth of Kharachi has an immense desire to improve their qualification through Higher Education Institutions of quality standards. Thus to earn their livelihood with honour and dignity, as well as to extend a helping hand to their parents and siblings to lead respectable lives. During the last about one and half decade, Sarhad University has acclaimed a reputable name in the educational circles of Pakistan and abroad.
I am happy that a University having charter from a comparatively less developed province of Pakistan i.e Khyber Pukhtunkhwa has achieved so many laurels to claim excellent academic standing among its counterparts. To me, the distinctive features of Sarhad University, Peshawar, is its Distance Education Programs, which is uniqe in a sence that it provides education at the doorstep of the desiring students. It is also heartening to know that through this program, the students do not need to relocate as well as can learn while they earn.
I hope that Sarhad University will continue its efforts with same zeal and spirit to reach every nook and corner of the country through its educational programs to equip youth of the country with quality education at affordable cost.
I congratulate the Management, faculty and Students of the University for their dynamic initiative. I also pray for their success in Sindh alongwith other provinces of the country.
