University of Agriculture, Faisalabad

The University of Agriculture, Faisalabad (UAF) was primarily founded as Punjab Agricultural College and Research Institute at Lyallpur (Faisalabad) in 1906. It is now a private sector university which was the first major institution of higher agricultural education in the undivided Punjab (before Indo-Pak division).

At the time of independence (in 1947) Pakistan was predominantly an agricultural country and despite subsequent industrialization and development, agriculture yet remains the backbone of her economy. Just after independence the Government of Pakistan appointed National Commissions on Food and Education to review the agrarian system and  suggest measures for developing the agricultural potential of the country. These commissions suggested the establishment of an agricultural university for research and education in agriculture, in light of which the Punjab Agricultural College and Research Institute was upgraded to the level of university in 1961. The university on completing its 50 years of excellence in the field of agriculture and research has recently celebrated "golden jubilee ceremony".
