Need

In the emerging age of information and knowledge, it is imperative to ensure quality and purposefulness of our educational programs. Computing professions, although young, are undoubtedly playing pivotal role in the development of nations. The computing education in Pakistan being a recent phenomenon needs direction, guidance, and mechanisms to achieve quality standards. Accreditation processes are considered an effective instrument to achieve these goals.


Accreditation protects and promotes the interest of all stake holders, namely parents, students, faculty, academic administrators, employers, and taxpayers. It serves to notify: Parents and prospective students that a program has met minimum standards; Faculty, deans and administrators of a program’s strengths and weaknesses and of ways to improve the program; Employers that graduates are prepared to begin professional practice; Taxpayers that their funds are spent well; and The public that graduates are aware of public health and safety considerations. Realizing the benefits and need of accreditation, the National Curriculum Revision Committee of Computer Science-2003, which met in December 2003 and March 2004 at Higher Education Commission in Islamabad, recommended establishment of National Computing Education Accreditation Council (NCEAC) for accreditation of degrees in Computing in Pakistan.

Establishment

Higher Education Commission was constituted on 11th September, 2002 by the promulgation of Ordinance F. No. 2(1)/2002.Pub And Whereas the Higher Education Commission has been authorized in article 3 Sub-Section (e) to set up national or regional evaluation councils or authorize any existing council or similar body to carry out accreditation of Institutions including their departments, faculties and disciplines by giving them appropriate ratings. The Commission shall help build capacity of existing councils or bodies in order to enhance the reliability of the evaluation carried out by them: and Whereas, now there is an urgent need for the constitution of the National Computing Education Accreditation Council (NCEAC) for the smooth and the efficient working of the affairs of the Higher Education Commission regarding the accreditation of institutions and their departments, faculties and disciplines by giving them appropriate ratings, now therefore, the said council by the name of National Computing Education Accreditation Council (NCEAC) is established with immediate effect.
