The announcement was made during the seminar at the University of Engineering and Technology (UET).
The Punjab Minister for Higher Education, Raja Yassir Humayun Sarfraz, said that the government has been planning to promote chip technology at nine universities in the province.
The announcement was made during seminar at the University of Engineering and Technology (UET).
While considering the possible integration of microchips and nanochips with universities in Pakistan, the Minister noted that the provincial government initially plans to promote the technology at nine well-known universities and added that the UET Lahore would lead on this project.
Besides the UET Lahore campus, other institutes, including the UET Taxila, the ITU Lahore, and the Islamia University Bahawalpur, will also raise awareness regarding chip technology in Punjab.
The project, once executed, will provide the universities access to the software tools, and their nominated faculty will receive training on these tools.
The trained faculty will then develop a curriculum and promote this technology by making it part of their course work and providing training to students.
