IT initiatives in Punjab
PEEF, PEF, Daanish Schools, IT Labs, Laptops, Internships and Technology University are all meant to equip our youth with quality education & modern tools to make them excel and compete at international level.”, said Hamza Shahbaz. While commenting on the current political scenario he said, “We have sacrificed a lot for Democracy in this country and will not accept any imported agenda.
It was PML-N’s Government which made Indian Prime Minister Mr. Vajpaye visit Pakistan and negotiate on equality basis, carried out Nuclear Tests despite immense pressure from the west. Motorway was built with our own resources which is a huge national asset now. The tree of Democracy has finally started flourishing in Pakistan and we won’t let anyone hijack it. We all need to realize this and stand united.
God bless Pakistan!” ITU has been established to train students in not just engineering sciences but also leadership skills to transform them into pioneers in technology innovation. The academic concentrations at ITU, namely ‘Entrepreneurship’ and ‘Strategic Systems’, serve as a plug-in to our incubator program at the IT board. ITU has officially partnered with the renowned Middle-East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey.
This partnership will allow prosperous exchange of students and faculty between Pakistan & Turkey.
