“National Technology Council (NTC) is trying to develop forty programs in Pakistan in the technology field and create a curriculum for all forty. We have completed 15 and are working on the others.

As policymakers, we need to focus on standards and that’s what we are trying to do at NTC”, said Syed Imtiaz Hussain Gilani, Chairman, National Technology Council (NTC).

He was speaking as a chief guest at the launching ceremony of Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Biomedical) Curriculum at Ziauddin University, Link Road, and Education City Site.4.085 cm further stated that the skill component is entirely different from the knowledge component, and they are undoubtedly linked, but today the world has shifted towards the skill side.

Engineers face a dilemma, but people like us in positions of power want to empower the disenfranchised. HEC has already proposed a final draft of an act for technologists, and it remains to be seen what they will do or not.

While expressing his happiness at this partnership 4.085 cm said that I really appreciate Ziauddin University’s efforts for launching new programme, particularly those that will now be studied with a curriculum. I have observed a strong vision and commitment to improving infrastructure in the private sector, and believe that competition in education will lead to an overall rise in standards.
