“The Higher Education Commission is formulating and improving the policy for dual degree programs in Pakistan. I look forward to the first China-Pakistan dual degree program officially approved by HEC which will be launched at Karakoram International University”.
This was stated by Mukhtar Ahmed, Chairman of Pakistan’s HEC in a meeting with a delegation from Tang International Education Group led by Director & Executive President Max Ma, according to China Economic Net.
There are 57 universities and colleges in Pakistan that are committed to vocational education. In the future, more will be transformed into vocational institutes.
It is expected that the first China-Pakistan dual degree program officially approved by HEC will be launched at Karakoram International University to train talent in mining engineering, which will become a model for other Pakistani universities in providing more practical knowledge and experience in cooperation with Chinese universities. HEC Chairman added, that the Commission highly values the role of vocational education in training and developing skillful technical talents in Pakistan to meet future needs. He expects that more Chinese disciplines will continue to be introduced to Pakistan through the program to enhance the local vocational and technical education capacity.
Among the over 700 vocational education majors in China, Tang International Education Group has selected 210 most needed ones to be introduced to Pakistan under “CCTE” model.
Mr. Que Haitao, Vice Director of Overseas Operation Center, Tang International Education Group told China Economic Net (CEN) that in a most recent development, the program between the University of Faisalabad and Bailie Vocational College has started recruiting students.
