NTC Committed to Improve Quality of Technology Education

ISLAMABAD, OCT 28 –  The National Technology Council (NTC) is committed to working for the betterment of engineering technologists and improving the overall standards of technology education and curriculum in the light of contemporary challenges.

This was stated by Chairman NTC Imtiaz Gilani while chairing the 6th NTC meeting held at the Higher Education Commission (HEC). Chairman HEC Tariq Banuri also attended the meeting through video link. The meeting was also attended by newly appointed members, including Vice Chairman Prof. Dr. Muhammad Mukhtar and other ex-officio members.

The Chairman NTC said that the significant issues of engineering technologists needing immediate attention include approval of their service structure. “The service structure needs to be based on a vertical growth, opportunities to compete for research, and technologically oriented positions in the country, including entrepreneurship in technologies relevant domains.”

The National Technology Council meeting participants appreciated HEC’s initiative for announcement of 200 scholarships for technologists. They took important decisions with regard to streamlining academic and governance activities at NTC.

A committee was constituted to make the technology education in line with the HEC’s Undergraduate Education Policy 2020. It was also decided to recommend the inclusion of one representative of technologist associations as the Council Member. “If the associations fail to recommend one person and give more than one name, the Chairman NTC may appoint the most competent and well-versed nominee as Member.”

With a realisation that the engineering technologists are not getting due recognition in Pakistan as compared to the developed world, where technologists have an edge of practical hands-on approach to problem-solving, the NTC Chairman and members expressed a resolve to take tangible measures for betterment of engineering technologists in the country.

The meeting concluded with a resolve that NTC must go with its broader dimensions in emerging technologies benefitting humanity and boosting the national economy.
