Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC)
The Quality Enhancing Cell (QEC) was established in 2015 by the Textile Institute of Pakistan (TIP) in Karachi, with support and collaboration from the Higher Education Commission’s (HEC) Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). It is one of the 247 Cells that the HEC has established to date in both public and private sector universities and institutions of Pakistan. These cells believe to be the concept of “Improving the Quality of Education through Continuous Learning”.
TIP’s products, its students, are highly sought after in the textile industry because of the continuous emphasis on quality assurance and the learning process. Almost all of the graduates with various degrees have found jobs in the sector, so far. To date TIP has Alumni of well over 1700 students.
Feedback is the backbone of the SAR process, and there are six forms of input that must be submitted: course evaluation by the students, teacher’s evaluation by the students, faculty course evaluation, graduating survey by the students, alumni survey & employer survey).
Online feedback processing takes place before the end of the academic term. The QEC communicates with each program’s coordinator to arrange for the online survey arrangements with the IT department. Students fill out the online survey and the QEC gathers and examine the data to provide statistical reports.
The QEC is successfully complying with the QAA-HEC requirements particularly the Self-Assessment (SARs) of all undergraduate programmes, Self-Institutional Performance Evaluation (Self-IPE) and IPE visit by the HEC Review Panel.
