Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan

bzu1Multan has always remained a center of excellence in education. Hazrat Bahauddin Zakariya (1172 - 1262 A.D.), a Muslim religious scholar and saint, established a school of higher learning in theology in Multan; where scholars from all over the world came for studies and research. Multan has maintained its central position and centuries-old cultural heritage and therefore suited ideally to become a center of learning. Thus the University of Multan was established in 1975 by an Act of the Punjab Legislative Assembly. To pay homage to the Great Saint, the name was changed from University of Multan to Bahauddin Zakariya University in 1979.

Location

The University is located at a distance of 10 km from the city center. The main campus is spread over 960 acres of land. The University has a fleet of 45 buses and 3 coaches which provides transport facilities to students and staff. The University started functioning in 1975 in rented buildings with 8 departments. Presently, it has more than 51 departments/institutes/colleges. Out of its 630 faculty members, 389 hold doctoral degrees and among its around 26659 students, half are female.

In order to cater to the needs of the textile industry, which is a major industry of the area, the University College of Textile Engineering was established in 2004. The University has also established three sub-campuses at Layyah, Lodhran, Vehari & Muzaffar Ghar to provide education facilities at the doorsteps of the people as part of the policy of the Government. Steps have been taken to establish the University's linkages with the community and Industry. There has been a significant enhancement in students' enrollment. To ensure quality in academics and research, Quality Enhancement Cell has been established. A large number of buildings are under construction. These buildings will provide better facilities to the students. The University has implemented a semester system in almost all the departments and organizing international conferences and seminars have been a routine academic activity. A significant number of faculty members have been awarded post-doc research fellowships.
