Prof. Zulfiqar Ahmad


It is a matter of immense privilege and pride to arbitrate the significance of the Office of Research Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC) that is in fact a source of educational upheaval, inspiration and establishment of industrial linkages between the industries and University of Wah (UW). Industries of all kinds including oil and gas, refineries, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, defence production, bioremediations, heavy mechanical industries, and renewable and cleaner energy etc. are the backbone of boosting economic growth of a country and play a pivotal role to establish industrial linkages with the universities. University of Wah was established in 2005 under the patronage of Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF). UW is offering degree courses in five Engineering disciplines, Basic Sciences, Social Sciences, and Computer Sciences. UW offers undergraduate and graduate programs while some new postgraduate and PhD programs are being introduced beginning September, 2017.

The mission of ORIC is to develop, expand, enhance and manage the University's research programs and to link the research activities directly to educational, social and economic priorities of the University. ORIC is also responsible for assuring quality of research, submission of research projects, introducing research culture and raise stature of the University among the world's best research institutions.

In pursuit of this mission ORIC has the responsibility of guaranteeing that all research programs and policies reflect the core values of academic freedom, professional integrity and ethical conduct and fully compliance with all policies, legal requirements and operational standards of University of Wah (UW) and Higher Education Commission (HEC).

We at UW keep our faculty abreast by disseminating the latest information through emails about internships, scholarship programs, funding and sponsors. Most of the information is sought from HEC Portal. Simultaneously, we are striving hard to establish a strategic partnership framework agreement with Chinese institutes to get CPEC benefits and streamline University of Wah's existing disciplines, besides faculty exchange of our younger faculty, and opening of new disciplines in demanding fields.

ORIC has also been making endeavors for student's conferences at national level and aiming to launch an international conference in the near future. This would in turn facilitate students to enhance their educational skills and gain experience of presentation on a platform to foster academia-industry collaborations, and to evaluate emerging technologies and latest developments in the related fields.

ORIC is determined to achieve the laudable goal of crafting industrial linkages, research culture, and new innovation of wining projects from HEC, Pakistan Science Foundation (PSF), Pakistan Ordnance factories (POF) and international collaboration with foreign Universities. UW will lead to a forum of international standards and will co-opt all prerequisites mandatory to become a leading University in the region and abroad Insha Allah.
