KITE’s Affiliation With the University of Karachi (UoK)
KITE’s affiliation with the University of Karachi (UoK) offers a significant advantage to our students.
Connecting the Dots
Founded in 1951, the University of Karachi is an established center of learning and research in the subcontinent and in the developing world. With 52 departments, 19 research centers and over 700 highly qualified & experienced teachers, a working partnership with UoK ensures that KITE has access to an exhaustive, but largely untapped, resource of academic excellence.
The Karachi University Affiliation Committee ensures that all KITE operations are in line with its rules & regulations. These rules certify that:
- Affiliated institutes comply with the policies & regulatory standards of governmental & accrediting bodies.
- Faculty hiring and student admissions follow a fair and merit-based process.
- All KITE students have unencumbered access to library books, research journals, laboratory equipment and other learning resources.
An affiliated degree combines the best of both worlds – access to professional and academic resources that UoK brings, along with the cutting edge perspectives, robust facilities & strong industrial linkages that forms the core of the KITE philosophy. KITE graduates also join the elite ranks of the vast UoK Alumni network.
Specifically, the curriculum KITE students study is directed by the academic rigor that UoK expects, along with unique additions introduced by KITE. Most importantly, this curriculum is delivered to students through KITE’s contemporary teaching methodology on our high-tech, purpose built campus. Carefully crafted ‘entrepreneurial injection’ seminars, coupled with access to venture capital funds & insightful mentorship provide the best platform for KITE students to successfully convert their professional and personal dreams into reality.
The UoK library is one of the largest in the country, curating over 360,000 books and over 110,000 copies of national and foreign journals and periodicals, in addition to rare research materials not available elsewhere. This means that KITE students will have access to a substantive framework of professional and academic excellence at all times in their academic career.
After graduating, KITE students will have a world of opportunities at their fingertips. A University of Karachi degree is recognized all over the world. The affiliation facilitates the admission of our students in foreign universities and also helps them obtain credit transfers without any hassle. Other post-graduation benefits of our affiliated degree include:
- Degree Verification: Students will be able to get their degrees verified from UoK.
- Academic Liaising: Transcripts, letters of recommendation & additional academic support will be provided by KITE.
KITE’s affiliation with UoK follows in the footsteps of a tried & tested process that has yielded some of the most familiar faces of higher education in Pakistan. The Liaquat National Medical College, Jinnah Medical and Dental College remain affiliated with Karachi University to the present day. The H.E.J. Institute of Chemistry, a world class research institute with the single largest doctoral program in Pakistan, is also part of the University.
Many other institutes of repute have been affiliated with UoK in the past. These include the NED University of Engineering and Technology, Dow University of Health Sciences, and Institute of Business Administration (IBA).
