LAHORE - The establishment of proposed IT University in public sector for women at the Chief Minister House in GOR-I needed extensive consultation from the IT experts before its launching to thrash out solution to ensuing problems and hurdles and for the smooth working of the university. The funds, premises of some 17 kanal land and patronage by the government are though key factors in the success of the university still there are problems, which cannot be settled with money and executive authority. The foremost is the acute shortage of experts and duly qualified teachers preferably PhD in Computer Science and IT. Another fact reveals that there is no IT University for boys while there were proposals to turn any of the existing IT colleges or constituent college of the Punjab University to function as full fledged IT university . At present, more than 60 per cent of seats in the IT institutions are occupied by the male, maximum of them settle in the IT job market while half of the hardly 40 per cent female do not opt for job and prefer to stay back home after marriages and thus the time and money spent on their education and training is never applied in the market. The IT University could be the best option at a later stage but does not seem feasible at this stage when Pakistan is badly needing ambitious and dynamic IT graduate to survive in the competitive job market. The curriculum and pedagogy in the IT University for women would also have to be reformed afresh. By the time, the university will start functioning; many changes might have taken place in the theory and practice and current need of the industry. What is to be taught and how, is the question to be answered carefully. The proposed IT university do not only need women IT professionals of international standard but also those who have experience in management of IT institutions. There are few experts qualified in computer science and computer engineering working in professional assignments at the FAST, Quaid-e-Azam University, LUMS, Comsat Islamabad including Dr Anita Malik, Dr Onaiza Maqbool, Dr Mehreen Saeed, Dr Qudsia etc. Persons like Dr Majid Naeem head department of Computer Science GCU and Dr Mansoor Sarwar, Principal PUCIT, are exclusively qualified in computer science and computer engineering but there is dearth of qualified teachers even in the existing institutions. Only the PhDs are eligible to teach the MS/MPhil 18 years programme in computer science and IT and these programmes faced shortage even in the existing institutions. The experts say that the shortage of highly qualified IT professional will be overcome within the next two years as the HEC sponsored PhD programme in the CS and the IT in a number of institutions will conclude by that time.
