Nov 14, 2011 - 15:27

HERAT CITY (PAN): Millions of dollars have been spent to provide equipment and construct buildings for Herat University, but still it lacks several facilities including hostel, library and dining hall.  

In addition, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and other organizations had also donated equipments to the university, the university chancellor, Associate Prof. Mir Ghulam Osman Barez Hussaini, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Having 14 faculties, the Herat University is the second largest institution in Afghanistan.

Established in 1988, the university has been built over 138 acres of land. Nearly 8,500 students, 40 percent of them females, are currently getting education at the university.

In last 10 years, the university's scientific cooperation with the world's most prestigious universities in the United States, Korea, Japan, Germany, Malaysia, Italy, India, Pakistan and others  rose significantly, Hussaini said.

Thirty percent of the university teachers had master's degrees, he said, adding the university would soon hire teachers having doctorate degrees in the coming years.

A laboratory, technical equipment, internet and other facilities had also been provided to students, the chancellor said.
