Rules & Regulations
 
 
 
   
GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS:
A.
Facilities Provided to a M.Phil / PhD Student:
 
i.
A M.Phil/Ph.D. student shall enjoy all facilities of a regular University student such as:-
 
--
Accommodation (depends upon the availability of seats) and for a term as specified by Hall Council from time to time.
 
--
Transport
 
--
Library/internet
ii.
A limited number of scholarships available for M.Phil, MS and Ph.D. students. This will be awarded on merit after completing the course work.
B.
Facilities Provided to the Department:
The Departments/Institutes/Colleges must be allocated funds in the budget specified for Ph.D. program for purchase of equipment/strengthening of infra structure/books/Journals/Internet Facilities.
C.
Pre-Requisites For Quality Research:
    In order to maintain quality of research work Ph.D. research supervisor should be:-
 
i.
A Professor/Associate Professor and Assistant Professor/Lecturer holding Ph.D. degree can enroll Ph.D. students. However, the limit to supervise Ph.D. students should be decided by the Doctoral Program Committee (in the light of HEC guide lines) keeping the bench space available for next 3-5 years, so that reasonable number of positions is available each year for admission.
 
ii.
Professor/Associate Professors/Assistant Professors working in the College/Institutions/Departments that are affiliated with the University of the Punjab holding Ph.D. degree or equivalent to the Ph.D. will be allowed to enroll Ph.D. students as supervisors and allowed to act as examiners on the recommendations/approval of the "Doctoral Programe Co-ordination Committee of the University of the Punjab. The criteria for approval of such teachers will be based upon the academic value of the degree, the length of the teaching experience of the teacher and the number of publications.
D.
Utilization of Intra and Inter Departmental Facilities:
 
i.
In faculty of science where poor infra structure of laboratories could be a bottleneck to initiate Ph.D. Programe, coordination, cooperation and collaboration among different departments within the University be promoted. A University teacher having certain facility and expertise be associated as a Co-Supervisor.
 
ii.
A strong liaison be established between research Organizations/Institutes (e.g. PCSIR, PINSTECH, NIAB, NIBGE, PARC, HEJ, PTB, BISE, CW) where our Ph.D. student could work for short periods for which, Punjab University does not have adequate equipment facilities.
 
iii.
Sandwich programe be initiated between University of the Punjab and other high tech. Labs Universities in Europe and U.S.A. (e.g. DAAD , extends this facility to developing countries.)
E.
Establishment Of A Central Workshop Facility:
 
i.
The establishment of a central workshop facility is mandatory for Faculty of Science. The existing arrangements and the departmental workshops (hitherto only in few Departments) are quite inadequate. In the central workshop, a cell for the repair and maintenance of electronic equipment must also be included. This will save the university a sizeable amount spent on repairs and also will render many pieces of equipment serviceable.
ii.
A Central Resource Centre should be established where the facility of important journals, online journals and online databases should be provided.
F.
Funding:
i.
Purposeful research is high tech; requiring intensive monitory inputs and the indigenous resources of the university may not be enough for an initial breakthrough from present state of stagnation and impasse. To raise funds, a close liaison between university and industry must be established. Where possible Ph.D. research programe be geared to solve scientific problems encountered by the industry. To achieve this end, a centre for research development be established to promote collaboration between industry and the University.
ii.
The Centre Coordinator should also deliberate with the Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of the Punjab , HEC etc. for funding (JAICA & other international agencies).
G.

Placement/Service Advisory Bureau:

 
i.
It is strongly felt that no job advisory system exists in the University for our graduates in different disciplines. It is, therefore, suggested that a placement/service Advisory Bureau for acquiring data from various potential employees be established.
 
ii.
The research program/syllabi and curricula be devised to cater the needs of potential employers.
H.
Appointment of Coordinator:
 
A Ph.D. program coordinator be appointed from amongst the senior Professors of the university to regulate admission and coordinate the execution of the program. He/She should keep a liaison with Controller of Examinations and the Vice-Chancellor in order to remove unnecessary delays in evaluation of thesis/other administrative matter.
