Overview of BKUC

The Bacha Khan University, Charsadda formerly known as Palosa Campus of The Abdul Wali Khan University, Mardan, located at the outskirts of District Charsadda. Established in April, 2010 at a very backward area where transport, gas and electricity could not be found. The total area of the University was mere forty-eight kanals. The University comprised of only four Departments, which in itself was a challenge, keeping in view the location of the Campus. In 2012 the Campus got upgraded to the status of The Bacha Khan University, Charsadda. most of the staff was deputed to AWKUM. At that time the University had four PhD, eight Assistant Professor, thirteen Lecturers and seventeen Teaching Assistants. 20th January, 2016 saw a bloody morning that brought about misery, injury and devastation to the university. 11th December, 2020 was the joining date for the Pride of Performance Meritorious Professor Dr. Bashir Ahmad, a paradigm shift occurred and everything is running in a positive direction, the aim is to make this university a Makkah of learning. Now, at BKUC the Professors are five, Associate Professors are three, Assistant Professors are seventy-three, Lecturers sixty-nine, and Teaching Assistants are fourteen.
