This was stated at a three- train­ing work­shop held here on Fri­day to ac­quaint the stu­dents about the know-how and use of the new ' State- of- theart, labs' equip­ment, be­ing main­tained at the main cam­pus of the Univer­sity.

The well- equipped AIOU's labs meet lat­est re­search's needs, which are com­pat­i­ble to the in­ter­na­tional stan­dard, the VC said hop­ing that the stu­dents would make best use of them for achiev­ing ex­cel­lence in their re­spec­tive aca­demic dis­ci­pline.

Dr. Zia- Ul- Qayyum said that the AIOU could of­fer the fa­cil­ity of its rich sci­en­tific labs to the stu­dents of other ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, which other­wise could not af­ford to have such in­fra­struc­ture net­work.

A vi­able mech­a­nism will be de­vel­oped for this pur­pose al­low­ing the other in­sti­tu­tions to avail the fa­cil­ity on nom­i­nal charges, he added. - NNI
