Dr. AQ Khan Institute of Technology Mianwali
Fulfillment of a dire need
General
a. Technological and vocational training in the foremost requirement for a developing country like Pakistan, in particular for its remote/less developed regions like Mianwali and adjioning rural and semi urban areas. Considering the economics, industrial development and socioeconomic needs of the country, there is a huge gap between the actual requirement and the available infrastructure for human resourses development in the fields of science and technology.
b. Keeping this background in mind, Dr. AQ Khan Institute of Technology in Mianwali has been established to meet the requirement to fully capitalise on the locally available resources of the region with the help of qaulified and skilled manpower. Beside, the establishment of such Institute in Mianwali was highly optimal because nature has endowed the region with enormous resources like fine quality sand, clay, coal and other minerals which are used in manufacturing of glass, ceramics, chemical, cement etc. and these mineral resources can be further exloited. The agricultural output of the region can also be maximized if technical/trained manpower is available in the relevant areas. The Institute therefore aims that any person who qualifies from the Institute should be readily absorbed in the chemical, pharmaceutical, cement, textile and fertilizer industries as well as public sector projects like Chashma ans Wapda etc. and thus meet the technical human resource needs of not only this region but that of the entire country where ever required.

c.  The Institute aims not only to serve the local populationor any particular ethnic/creed/tribe of Mianwali but its beneficiaries will encompass a bulk of entire southern region of Punjab as well as adjoining areas of N.W.F.P. 

2. Campus Location and structural features:
The Institute spreads over an area of almost 25 acres contributed by local philanthropist family of Hakim Abdul Qayyum Khan. The Institue's Campus is sited in the midst of the unspoilt and nature-rich countryside of Mianwali, in Chah Miana located at a ditance of about 14 kilometers from Mianwali town. The initial construction work has since been completed to start the basic functioning. An area of about 15 acres has been earmarked for main academic  building, workshops and hostels where as a land-mass of about 10 acres has been reserved for providing the residential facilities to the teaching faculty/staff. Besides these, the institute will have a Library with ultimate capacity of at least 100,000 books and magazines, equipped with the state of art facilities.  An auditorium with a seating capacity of 700, a cafeteria to cater for 300 students, a well-equipped gymnasium and a complete Medical Unit etc are also some of the silient features of the Institute's design. All these once completed, will enable a vibrant academic activity on institue's campus, completely independent of the outer world's hassles.
