16 modern IT Labs to lift Quality of Education in Islamabad

ISLAMABAD: The Federal Ministry of Education and Vocational Training, in partnership with the Special Investment Facilitation Council (SIFC), has announced plans to establish 16 advanced IT labs across educational institutions in the federal capital.

These cutting-edge facilities are set to revolutionize education, empowering young people with the latest technological skills.

The aim is to enhance employment prospects by offering comprehensive courses in blockchain, data science, artificial intelligence (AI), and game development, ensuring students are well-prepared for the demands of the modern job market.

This initiative heralds a new era of educational excellence and demonstrates the Ministry’s commitment to nurturing a generation proficient in navigating the complexities of the digital age. Strategically located within 16 degree colleges across Islamabad, these IT hubs will serve as centers for innovation and creativity.

In collaboration with esteemed institutions such as NUST, National Skills University, COMSATS, and NUML, the curriculum is designed to meet industry standards and address growing market needs.

Supported by the expertise of the National Vocational and Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC), the courses promise to equip students with the necessary skills to thrive in a competitive global landscape.

The Ministry aims to enroll 1,000 students initially, with plans for future expansion. The overwhelming response from the youth, with 3,600 students already registered for the courses, underscores the enthusiasm for this initiative.

The Prime Minister of Pakistan has personally endorsed this initiative, reflecting the government’s commitment to youth empowerment and economic revitalization.

Aligned with the objectives of the Special Investment Facilitation Council (SIFC), the establishment of these IT labs positions Pakistan as a hub of progress and innovation on the global stage.

As the countdown to the commencement of courses in the second week of May 2024 begins, anticipation grows, marking the beginning of a new era of education and opportunity for the youth of Islamabad.
