AIOU brings science labs at par with int'l standard
ISLAMABAD: Allama Iqbal Open University ( AIOU) has upgraded its science labs at international standard that facilitate its students to undertake quality research work and enable them giving necessary academic input for the country's socioeconomic development.
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 workshop arranged by the Physics Department was presided over by the Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Zia-Ul-Qayyum. It was participated by the students and resource persons of the local Universities other than the AIOU.
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
