In the modern era the concept and role of a University is changed from the traditional one, where teaching and learning was the only manifesto. In addition to this fundamental aim the universities are now expected to build societies, leaderships, skills, researches and communications and, bring out all creative potentials of an area’s human and natural resources for its development. Indoctrination of this conception within the teachers, students and general population (directly or indirectly) is the primary goal of Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan (AWKUM), which contrivance to spread the beacon of knowledge at the width and breadth of the country. In this regard nine campuses have been started so far, in a very short span of two years, in different places throughout the province.
The credit of this state-of-the-art in education must go to His Excellency Prof. Dr. Ihsan Ali, Vice Chancellor (AWKUM) whose relentless efforts and proactive role made this embryonic university second in rank in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) after University of Peshawar. We are particularly indebted to the Honorable Amir Haidar Khan Hoti, Chief Minister of KPK, who ended-up this ideology in to a palpable reality due to his personal involvement, keen interest and immeasurable endeavors.
AWKUM (Timargara Campus) is a bead of the precious chain opened on September 2011 in Qaziabad Timargara, district Dir (lower). With the grace of God the campus opportune with a qualified and meticulous staff who with their diligent struggle achieved ironic successes in academic and non-academic spheres. The campus is a student focused environment providing all the possible means for nurturing their creative abilities, intellectual height, professional elevation and moral loftiness. We are committed to bring new disciplines, expert faculty and proud graduates in the days ahead. Conscious measures are taken to make the campus compatible to national and international standards, and realize our dreams in a tangible output.
