UET Issued Degree to a Qatari Student After 38 Years

The University of Engineering and Technology (UET) issued the degree of BSc in Electrical Engineering to a Qatari student after 38 years.

Lui Khalil Ibrahim, the Ombudsman Punjab ordered the Secretary of Higher Education to take disciplinary action under the Punjab Employees, Efficiency, Discipline and Accountability (PEEDA) Act by identifying those responsible for the mismanagement and also sought a report within 45 days of all those students who had not been awarded degrees for a long time.

Ibrahim, a student from Qatar, applied to the Ombudsman Punjab, stating that he had completed BSc in Electrical Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology Lahore in 1984.

At the direction of the investigation officer, the registrar of the UET prepared the degree and handed it over to the applicant’s representative in Pakistan.

The Ombudsman of Punjab termed the non-production of a student’s degree for 38 years a serious mismanagement.
