elevate themselves in the field of learning, research and development. I am confident that the excellent teaching, learning and research
atmosphere will spur the talents of the students enabling them to compete at all levels in a competitive job market.
By utilizing best efforts opportunities are being provided for faculty and students to update their knowledge through interaction of

needy and talented students so that they may not be deprived of higher education facilities for want of financial resources. Opening of
career counselling office is also under way to help the students for internship, higher studies abroad and job opportunities.
Our University has laid emphasis on developing collaborative academic linkages with higher educational institutions. In this regard, we
have signed Memoranda of Understanding with a number of organizations. The construction of King Abdullah Campus at Chattar Klass
is progressing well and with its completion, we will have sufficient infrastructure to provide more facilities to the students.
I am proud of my faculty, staff members and students who helped this University attain the present academic excellence.

CAMPUSES
MUZAFFARABAD

The River Neelum divides the University Campus into two parts i.e. City campus and Chella campus. The City campus is located near the
main business centre of the city while the Chella campus stands on the bank of the river. One can taste the contrast of the hubbub of the
city life, serene and peaceful atmosphere to match ones mood. At night, the city presents a magical view. Overlooking from the top of
a mountain, the city seems a flood of lights, which captivates the viewers. Looking a little away from the city centre, the thinly scattered
lights on mountains appear like little stars and you feel for a while as if the sky has been turned upside down. The cultural life of the city
is as varied as its landscape. If you walk through the city, this contrast becomes too obvious to escape notice.

Code of Conduct for Students


The University of Azad Jammu & Kashmir affirms that the central purpose of a Faculty is the pursuit of truth, the discovery of new
knowledge through scholarly research, the teaching and overall development of students. However, the establishment and maintenance
of a community where there is freedom to teach and to learn is dependent on maintaining an appropriate sense of order that allows for
the pursuit of these objectives in an environment that is both safe and free of invidious disruption.

Rules and regulations are necessary to mark the boundaries of this needed order.
PREAMBLE
The students, faculty and administration of the University of Azad
Jammu & Kashmir (UAJ&K) are all collectively and individually
responsible for maintaining the academic integrity of this
institution. This Code of conduct governs the academic conduct
of each student University-wide and it shall be used to govern and
adjudicate all matters of student academic conduct to the extent it
is practicable for it to do so.
Students at UAJ&K are obligated to conduct themselves in a
manner appropriate to the Universitys mission as an institution of
higher education. Students are obligated to refrain from acts that
they know, or should know, will impair the academic integrity of
the University. Actions, which may be considered acceptable or
normative outside of University, are not necessarily acceptable at
UAJ&K and shall not interfere in overall academic conduct. All
shall be treated equally and be guided by the current code. This
Code of Conduct may from time to time be revised and amended.
PRINCIPLES
This Code of Conduct has been formulated to provide a clear
statement of the Universitys expectations of students in respect of
academic matters and personal behavior.

with other members of the University community. The University

and expectations, and is committed to treating students, both


academically and personally, in a fair and transparent manner. All
students, in return, are required to comply with the requirements
set down in this Code of Conduct.
The University reaffirms its commitment to:
high academic standards, intellectual rigor and a high quality
education;
intellectual freedom and social responsibility;
recognition of the importance of ideas and the pursuit of
critical and open inquiry;
tolerance, honesty and respect as the hallmarks of
relationships throughout the University community; and
high standards of ethical behavior.
All students are required to be aware of and act consistently with
these values.
COVERAGE

now ranking the QECs on basis of performance. QEC has initiated functioning at all Departments of Main Campus. The self evaluation
system is being introduced in the university and has completed many Self Assessment Reports (SARs), implementation Plan Summaries
and Assessment Team Visits of the Departments of main campus. Numerous fruitful feedbacks received from Assessment Team experts
for improvement. Our motive is to enhance the quality of education compatible to the international standard. QEC is also underway
to take the feedback from Students, Alumni, Employers, Teachers and Research students online for better comments/feedbacks and
comparison with other QECs of public sector Universities of Pakistan. Mr. Lall Hussain, Assistant Director is working to streamline the
online evaluation process for swift and precise analysis of data to promulgate the concept.
The Quality Enhancement Cell at University of Azad Jammu and Kashmir has spread its functionality and is seeking Institutional
membership for collaboration with International bodies like Asia Pacific Quality Assurance network (APQN). Moreover the assessment

Here, we are endeavouring to establish an atmosphere


and culture conducive for promoting research activities in
order to attain academic excellence at par with the other
national and international Higher Education Institutions.
Our highly qualified and experienced faculty is committed
to inculcating the scientific and technical approach in our
students. This helps them in furthering their professional
goals in the careers ahead of them.
Though at present, we are running our departments with
limited infrastructure (consequent upon the devastating
earthquake of Oct. 08, 2005), yet advanced research
degree programs such as M.Phil and PhD have become
our regular academic features. Our research fields span
over a wide range of subject areas covering both natural
and applied sciences. Much of our strength in research is
based on our partnerships and collaboration with other
research organizations, development agencies, government
departments and national/ international institutions of
good repute.
On behalf of the faculty, I wish you a successful stay at the
University. I am confident that in the next couple of years,
with a newly established state of the art campus (at Chattar
Klass), our existing faculty will be able to further expand by
introducing new disciplines in the field of Science.

At present, department offers three Programmes leading to
MSc, MPhil and PhD degrees with specializations in Physical,
Inorganic, Organic, Analytical and Biochemistry.
The courses offered at various levels are tailored according to
the requirements of that particular degree with a view that the
graduating student may become a reliable tool of the dynamic
society.
Seminars and workshops are a regular feature of the academic
activities which not only enable the students to learn more about
the cutting-edge developments in the field of chemistry but also to
inculcate organizational and presentation skills in them.

AWARDS & HONOURS


The best parameter by which the level of academics and research
of a department may be measured is the recognition of expertise
of its faculty by independent agencies. In this regard, we take the
pride of being the only department whose faculty member has
been decorated with the coveted civil award Sitara-e-Imtiaz by
the Government of Pakistan. Similarly, six faculty members have
been declared as The Best University Teacher by HEC, Pakistan
and UAJK in the recent years. Salam Teacher Award has also been
conferred upon to two of the teachers. Numerous gold medals at
national level to various faculty members further strengthen the
list of appreciation. This achievement speaks voluminously about
the dedication of our faculty towards academia.

RESEARCH AREAS
The faculty has a keen interest in research and many of them
are included in the list of Productive Scientists of Pakistan,
published by Pakistan Science Foundation, (PSF). The research
areas are diverse but applied and include natural products,
metal extractions, coordination chemistry, surface chemistry,
environmental chemistry, bio-analytical chemistry, analytical
chemistry, organic synthesis and sonochemistry.

The University of Azad Jammu & Kashmir


JOB OPPORTUNITIES
The schemes of study for all Programmes are in accordance with
the guidelines of HEC and hence are acceptable to all, either the
employers or the higher education/ research institutions. The
major beneficiary of our graduates is the education industry
and hence we pleasantly take the responsibility of spreading the
education from primary to university level. At the same time,
the department has been feeding institutions like HEJ Research
Institute in Chemistry, Quaid-i-Azam University, PINSTECH,
University of Arid and Agriculture, University of Punjab. Still
others are absorbed in the multi-dimensional job market of the
country. Likewise, a lot number of students are currently pursuing
their PhD studies with flying colours at various foreign and inland universities.

PROGRAMMES AT A GLANCE
MSc PROGRAMME
This two year Programme under semester system has been
introduced since September 2004. In first two semesters,
courses for Physical, Inorganic and Organic chemistry are
compulsory while students have the option to choose from either
Biochemistry or Analytical chemistry. Being conscious of the
relevance of mathematics and computers with chemistry, Applied
Mathematics and Computer for Chemists are also offered as
compulsory courses in 1st and 2nd semester, respectively. In third
semester, students may opt for any of the specialization fields
offered by the department. The significant trait of the Programme
is the blending of at least one course from section other than that
of specialization, in third and fourth semesters each. This helps
to broaden the knowledge base and the vision of the students.
Research, though a stronghold of the department is offered as
an optional course on the basis of merit and interest because we
believe that RESEARCH IS NOT A MERE FUN. The students who
may not get the chance for the research are offered an advanced

practical course of equal credit hours. The course is designed


in a way that the students are exposed to applied and advanced
practical training in each area of specialization for a stipulated
period of time. The strategy helps in widening lab-training in all
the disciplines of chemistry. The peculiarity of the scheme is the
balance between the times, the students have to spend in taught
courses and lab courses.
ELIGIBILITY
The students seeking admission in MSc Programme must have
graduated from an HEC recognized university with chemistry
in any science combination excluding Geography. The admission
is purely merit based determined on previous academic
standings.

INTRODUCTION
Physics (Greek: physikos) is concerned
with those aspects of nature which can
be understood in a fundamental way in
terms of elementary principles and laws;
formerly called natural philosophy. It
covers the tiniest like quarks in a proton to
the largest like the universe of which our
solar system is a minute part. Its original
aim even covering this huge range is to
understand the structure of the natural
world and explain natural phenomena. It
is the goal of the Department of Physics
to contribute to the understanding and
applications of the fascinating aspects of
nature, and to offer a solid and attractive
curriculum to our young graduates.
The Department of Physics, established
in 1986 was initially situated at old
Campus of the University of Azad
Jammu and Kashmir, Muzaffarabad (now
known as city campus of the university).
Subsequently it was shifted to its newly
constructed building at Chehla Bandi
Campus in 2003.

THE SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPE


(SEM)
The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is located in the City
campus of the university at Muzaffarabad. The facility supports
in-house research and provides a service to the Researcher
from Physics, Material Science, Nanoscience as well as to all
departments within University of Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
Industries, Research & Development Organizations and all
Educational Institutions are also allowed to avail the facility
against the payment of some charges.
We have Jeol JSM-6510LV scanning electron microscope (SEM)
also called as environmental SEM for fast characterization of
samples having structure size upto 3nm and enables observation
of specimens up to 150mm in diameter. Jeol JSM-6510LV is
the one of the latest model in it class in the country having no
parallel example at the moment, its graphical user interface (GUI)
system is implemented on Windows Vista operating system. The
selectable low vacuum mode allows for observation of specimen
that cannot be viewed at high vacuum due to excessive water
content or because they have a non-conductive surface. With a
high resolution of 3.0nm at 30kV (high vacuum) and 4.0nm at
30kV (low vacuum), the JSM-6510LV delivers amazing clarity of
the finest structures having the magnification from x5 to x300,000
times with fine focal depth. It has dual live image display of the
secondary electron image (SEI) and a back scattered composition
image (BSCI) allows the user to contrast and compare specific
details. An energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDS) provides
elemental analysis (hopefully will be added in the system in near
future). The Facility also has the necessary support equipment

THE FOURIER TRANSFORM INFRARED (FTIR)
SPECTROMETER
Infra-red spectroscopy probes the composition of a sample.
Chemical bonds have characteristic frequencies at which they
vibrate. They can be set on vibrations by illuminating the sample
with Infra-Red light at the right frequency. The IR spectrum of
a compound possessing such bonds shows absorption bands at
these frequencies.The collection of different absorption bands can
be used to identify the tested compound.

Platinum and Gold Sputter coating system with highly pure


Argon gas.
Carbon taping, Graphite and Silver conducting epoxies/
paints setups.

The PerkinElmer Spectrum 100 Series FT-IR spectrometers


are the gold standard in IR spectroscopy for materials testing,
academia and research applications. This equipment is equipped
with Universal Attenuated Total Reflectance (UATR). The use of
ATR eliminates in many cases the need for sample preparation
or at least simplifies the procedures. It is also useful for strongly
absorbing samples which cannot be measured by infrared
transmission spectroscopy. To protect the sensitive optics and
minimize the contaminated spectra with unwanted background,

INTRODUCTION
Department of Zoology is one of the most active departments in the University of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Muzaffarabad. Zoology
as a subject is multidisciplinary in nature, involving study of organisms and their genetic, morphological and physiological attributes,
their surrounding environment, and their role in conservation of environment. Zoology is a combination of various disciplines such
as Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Toxicology, Genetics, Physiology, Ecology, Developmental Biology, Microbiology,
Parasitology, Entomology, Freshwater Biology, Fisheries, and Wildlife etc. This subject has significant role in human resources development,
food security, environmental
conservation,
sustainable
development and ultimately in
alleviation of poverty.
The department has a unique
feature of degree programs, as it
presents a balanced blend of the
classical as well as modern trends
of the new era. These programs
range from invertebrate Zoology
to Biotechnology. Every discipline
has a unique importance in its
place. For example, Biotechnology
is an emerging broad field that
employs an industrial technology
on the biological synthesis of
important compounds specially
proteins, genetic engineering of
the animals etc. Microbiology

represents the basic knowledge of viruses, bacteria and microorganisms which are mostly pathogenic and its impact on the other
related field is immense i.e. agriculture, food pollution etc. As for
as the importance of Physiology, Endocrinology and Toxicology
is concerned, every person is keen enough to know how its body
work and meets the changing demands. To keep pace with rapid
advances in the health sciences, Physiology, Endocrinology and
Toxicology are very important. Our environment plays a key role
in maintaining our good health. To keep it free form pollution
caused by industrial effluent, ways of bioremediation (removal
or degradation of environmental pollutants or toxic materials by
living organisms) are applied, and for this, study of Bioremediation
and environmental Biotechnology, Environmental Biology is
obligatory.

Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering (NIBGE), National


Institute of Agriculture and Biology (NIAB), Worldwide Fund
for Nature (WWF), International Union for the Conservation
of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) and various other
UN organizations. Besides these fields, they are also working in
various educational institutions, administrative and management
departments and organizations. In short, the students graduating
in the above offered programs are in great demand countrywide
as well as internationally.

The State of Jammu and Kashmir is extremely rich in wildlife


resources and several threats are operating to deplete these
resources without any sustainable development. Accordingly,
some wild animals have become threatened which if not protected
would soon become extinct. There is an intense need to explore
these precious resources to manage them for their sustainable
utilization to uplift the socioeconomic conditions of the local
communities.
Keeping in view the national and global trends the department
has currently initiated the BS-4 year degree program in Zoology.
The department admits under graduate and graduate students for
BS-4 Year, M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. degree programs in Zoology.

at crucial positions in various public and private institutions/
organizations at national as well as international level. Majority
of them are absorbed in Health departments, Wildlife and
Fisheries Department, various conservation projects and
programs, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services
(APHIS), Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA), Food
and Drug Administrations (FDA), National Institute of Health

MBA, 6th Semester
I can honestly say that, my time so far, at UAJ&K has shaped my entire thought process. I had no clear goals coming
into the MBA program. I knew simply that I loved the field of Business Administration, and despite not knowing
where this love would take me, I followed my passion nonetheless. In my last two years at UAJ&K, I worked very
closely with faculty members of the department; their guidance and encouragement helped me to formulate my
future plans. The faculty of the department is competent and motivated to achieve excellence in every sphere of academia.

INTRODUCTION
The Department of Education, currently Institute of Education, was
established in 2009 in response to the growing needs for teacher
education in the State of Azad Jammu and Kashmir. Another
strong motivation for launching Department of Education was
to rid the teacher training of sham education degrees awarded by
those institutions who had turned the teacher education into a
tool of making money.
The university took it upon itself as a national responsibility to
serve the education by producing graduates who would be well-

Dr. Azhar Saleem, Ph.D Statistics (Pak)

versed in their professional skills and are armed with a wide


repertoire of techniques to deliver the quality education, a catalyst
to revolutionize education in the country.
To firm up the Institute of Education, the Strategic Plan 2021 has
been developed. The plan is a collaborative initiative with the
assistance of Pre-STEP. A university Task Force was formed to
drive the development of the plan. The plan after carrying out a
situation analysis of the Institute contemplated what was required
to turn it into one of the leading institutions of the country.

The department offers a relatively new field of studies i.e.,


Linguistics along with the traditional and long studied subject
Literature. A great deal of emphasis is placed on development of
English language skills and on producing professional competent
language teachers who are equally conversant with English
Literature.

In view of the depth combined with variety makes the graduates


versatile. Up till now our graduates have been readily absorbed
in various fields i.e. teaching, civil services, and higher studies.
The market demand is still growing. The department is playing a
vital role in providing trained and competent English teachers to
overcome the shortage of skilled professionals.

ASSESSMENT

PROGRAMMES

The students are assessed through Quizzes, Assignments, and


presentations, Oral and written Examination. The students have
to maintain 2.5 CGPA by the end of the degree. The Sessional
(including Quizzes and Assignments) and terminal exams
comprise of 50 marks each.

MA in Linguistics and English Literature


MPhil in linguistics
PhD in linguistics

JOB OPPORTUNITIES

The criterion for admission to MA in English is graduation at least


in Second Division with English Language and preferably English
literature. For MPhil /PhD Programme, there is a requirement of
entry test and NTS is also mandatory.

English over many decades has been functioning as a Lingua


Franca world over and is likely to enjoy this status for another 50
to 100 years. In view of this importance, the career opportunities
for those graduating in this subject are vast. There is no denying
the fact that Linguistics and English Language Teaching have also
gained a great deal of importance. The Department is fully alive to
these modern developments and needs and has, therefore, devised
a course, which can meet all these requirements. The course we
offer at Masters level is unique and has no parallel in the country.
We aim to combine all the three subjects in balanced complex
where every component has an adequate proportion of share.

The mission of the Institute is to prepare the future generation of scholars in Kashmir
related multi-disciplinary fields. The new courses have been designed for those desiring
on a social science approach to South Asia and Kashmir in particular. The program
offers inter-disciplinary training and exhaustive acquaintance to the history, politics,
international relations, languages, art and design, archeology, economy, culture and
society of the State of Jammu & Kashmir. The program is tailored to meet the needs of
individual centering careers, students preparing for entry to M. Phil and doctoral programs and those who want to gain regional expertise. In addition to
the regular curriculum/courses, the experience of the students is enhanced by hosting regular symposia, and lecture series.
These extra-curricular events provide an opening of an innovative and creative learning and also develop deep inter-disciplinary understanding among
the students. We understand that globalization is a fact and Kashmir studies needs to advance linkages with globally inter-connected world. We recognize
that War, violence, and injustice are not inescapable but these can be overwhelmed by bringing a
positive change in attitudes at different levels. Keeping in view the dominant scenario, we have
introduced some modules of Peace Studies in the 4th semester of M.Sc. Program. This program will
be run in collaboration with Peace and Conflict Studies, Tokyo University of Foreign Studies (PCS)
Japan. Recently, we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tokyo University of
Foreign Studies (PCS) Japan. Under the MoU, both institutions will work jointly to create academic
programs of mutual interest. It is also decided that both parties will start mutual academic and
scientific activities, through the exchange of supervision for student research and any further initiative
towards sharing academic curriculum including the exchange of faculties and students. The Institute
of Kashmir Studies (IKS) is in a process to develop more linkages with different universities of the
academically advanced countries.
At IKS, we have recently started M. Phil program and intend to launch Ph. D program in near future.
It aims to understand and address the root causes of the problems and to seek non-violent ways to
transform conflict and end injustice. The new modules have been structured in a way, which allow
students to develop an advanced and critical understanding of Kashmir issue and approaches to
conflict resolution and peace building. At the institute of Kashmir studies you will have an opportunity
to engage with these issues in a challenging but friendly and supportive environment. You will study
with academic staff engaged in practical and policy related research work across the region both in an
individual capacity and with many different governmental and non-governmental organizations. It is
our hope that our graduates will become future leaders of our new generation.

INTRODUCTION
Sociology is the scientific study of society. It covers all aspects of society like human behavior, social institutions, social action, social
change & social problems. Sociologists investigate structure of groups, organizations and societies and the way people interact within
these contexts. Since human behavior is shaped by social factors, subject matter of sociology ranges from intimate family to a hostile mob,
from the division of society on the basis of race, gender and social class to shared beliefs of a common culture and from sociology of social
work to that of sports. In fact, few fields have such relevance and scope for research, theory and application of knowledge.
Sociology provides many distinctive perspectives on
the world, generating new ideas and criticizing old
ones. It also offers a number of research techniques
that can be applied virtually to all aspects of social
life like emotions, family, education, street crimes,
delinquency, war & peace, etc.
Sociology is gaining more and more importance
with the passage of time because society is
becoming more complex and new social problems
are emerging. Trained sociologists are the need of
the hour for maintaining the smooth functioning
of social systems, social life and society.

PROGRAM MISSION
The Department of Sociology and Rural
Development seeks to equip the students with
sociological knowledge to think critically about
social world and prepare them for advanced
education and research.

M.Sc ECONOMICS
The Department of Economics offers two year degree programme in Economics. The M.Sc Economics programme includes compulsory courses, optional courses, workshops and conference courses. A research project of 6 credits, practical training, and comprehensive oral examination are compulsory. The M.Sc Programme in Economics is designed to develop both economic reasoning and
constructing and estimating economic models through the use of econometrics and other quantitative techniques. The foundation
for intelligent economic reasoning is laid with courses in Microeconomics and Macroeconomic Theory; Statistics and Econometrics create the foundation for empirical analysis. These skills are then further enhanced through a diverse array of courses. These
courses serve to provide detailed knowledge of specific areas of economics but, equally important, provide additional experience in
economic modelling and econometric estimation. Our objective is for students to complete the programme with the skills to develop
and estimate models designed to address the questions they are faced with in their professional activities.
