Development of higher education is the core requirement of every country for economic stability and prosperity. We have seen the history and realized that those countries who didn’t invest in the higher education institutes always suffered the consequences. Pakistan is a developing country which needs higher education institutions, specifically in the field of engineering.
Some of the top tier engineering universities are by the public sector and the rest are private. Sometimes eligible candidates suffer due to high merit and less number of seats and they switch to private universities which is a very expensive option to choose. Moreover, public universities are also sufficient enough to offer a vast variety of diverse fields in engineering but in private universities, the fields are very limited. After this discussion, we can simply say that with an increase of public universities, the general public can definitely get the benefit with time.
