Welcome to the Faculty of Natural Sciences (FNS) at Quaid-I-Azam University Islamabad. It is a great privilege to speak to you from this platform. Here at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, our aim is to promote and cultivate the culture of practical education. We believe that when critical thinking, research, and creative activities are nurtured; only then emerges the bold pursuit of knowledge and diverse framework of perspectives. The passionate and dedicated faculty takes new and unprecedented steps to achieve laurels in academic and non-academic fields.
As Dean FNS, I believe that we are diverse and collaborative, therefore are an aspiration for our young scholars and researchers. Our mission of transformative learning experiences of students at FNS whether it is in the lab, internship, or study abroad opportunity, is an attractive feature and makes us one of the best in and out of Pakistan. Collaborations across the globe are creating fabulous research opportunities.
Pakistan, along with the world, has faced serious situations during and after the COVID pandemic. I can confidently tell that the faculty managed online teaching and learning, catering the needs of the students even in the far flung areas of the country. Online teaching at FNS QAU can be quoted as exemplary. Hats off to all the faculty at FNS who made it a success. The FNS remains vibrant and inclusive community of learners, scholars, teachers, professionals, and the non-academic staff.
We are highly focused on preparing our generations of future scientists to compete, excel, and serve the community with full commitment and great responsibility. At the end, I will conclude by saying that all the indicators of success are on the rise, let it be BS, MPhil, or PhD program.
