Chairman’s message

“The Climbing of a mountain begins with a first step – Take it.”

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to AKHUWAT-FIRST and I extend you my good wishes for a happy stay at this institute.

When Akhuwat-FIRST was inaugurated in November, 2015, nobody could tell that a small seed that was planted would, in a short span of time, grow into a shaded plant. I, even at that time, knew that this project would most certainly become one of the best institutions for talented students in the region with our commitment and dedication. It was more than just a dream for me and team of Akhuwat. The team of Akhuwat FIRST has worked day and night to make this dream achieveable.

I am a firm believer that hard work always pays off whether you are a student, professional or a businessman. Education demands both attention and hard work with care. Our purpose is to raise the standard of education in the country and be the benchmark for quality education. We strictly believe that quality education is the right of every child of Pakistan. We have offered many scholarships positions last year and it will continue this year also. At Akhuwat FIRST, a student gains something every day, every hour, and every minute. Our modern teaching methodologies and career oriented training grooms students into better individuals. They are given full confidence to take up the real world challenges of today’s and tomorrow in a better way. We are also offering part time job opportunities to students.

Keeping in mind the basic needs of research in the the emerging field of Biotechnology and to fill this gap, Faisalabad Institute of Research Science and Technology had started its BS program in Biotechnology in affiliation with University of Health Science, Lahore and currently more than 80 students are enrolled. In addition to the BS program, the department is also planning to start its M.Phil program in Biotechnology along with BBA Biotechnology in collaboration with IBA Sukkur.

Akhuwat-FIRST has reached a multidimensional milestones within this brief journey but there is a long way to go. The vision is to keep striving for excellence and keep moving forward to make this institute a centre of excellence in Biotechnology.
