Research and development are as crucial to a university as it is to the country. It is a key factor that enables universities to be internationally competent. The Kohat University Hangu campus is new and till now 3 programs are offered so there is not much research and funding. However, in the next few years, more departments will be formed and they will work on different research projects.
Along with the university’s up-rise, the seminars and workshops play a significant role in the personal and professional growth of the individual. They provide a forum at which students practice and develop new skills and obtain practical knowledge. The Kohat University Hangu campus tries to hold at least one seminar per month. The seminar can be on any topic including related to the syllabus. The topic selected for these events is scheduled mostly, based on the students’ choice. Many times students are sponsored to arrange guest speakers.
