The conception of Alhamd University can be accredited to AL HAMD Educational Society (AES), which was founded in the year 1995. AES envisions the promotion of quality and state of art education in all sectors from primary to higher level. AES is a non-profit and fully registered organization which is running and managing several education, research and development organizations.
Alhamd Islamic University is one of the many successful projects of the AES. Under the Act II of 2005, Alhamd Islamic university is chartered by the Provincial Assembly of Government of Baluchistan.
The chief campus of this institution is located at Airport Road, Quetta, Pakistan. A branch of this university is situated in Islamabad.
Alhamd University has received recognition from the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and is privileged to be the first private sector Islamic University of Pakistan in Baluchistan.
The university is authorized to award degrees in the faculties of Islam, Science, Technology, Education, Law, Arts and Engineering.
The university happily assumes the role of development of skilled professionals in the field of Islam, Science, Arts, Engineering and Technology.

Alhamd strives to carry out its mission of delivering quality education and competency based knowledge under the umbrella of Islam. The agendas, objectives and goals of this university are in line of Islamic beliefs and practices.
Unlike other Universities, Alhamd inculcates strong Islamic and moral values into the students. The teaching and mentoring at Alhamd University strengthens the faith of students, making them a better Muslim for themselves and the world. The university makes the students strong in spiritual aspect so that they can not only defend Islamic Ideology but also compete with the challenges of modern world.
The educational beliefs of the university are unique and original. The staff and administration of Alhamd believes that education should cater the development of man in every aspect.
