Mehran University of Engineering and Technology (MUET), in partnership with the Italian Dr Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, arranged a two-week workshop.
Technology Workshop Starts at MUET
The workshop had both Pakistani and foreign students and teachers. The usage of the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) was presented in the workshop.
According to programme director Dr Maria Crespo, the center organizes 50 international workshops worldwide every year. However this workshop was the first one in Pakistan, she added.
Mehran University of Engineering and Technology (MUET) is a public research university located in Jamshoro. It was established in 1963. The first batch of MUET was inducted in January 1974 with enrollment of 450 students in civil, mechanical, electrical, electronics, metallurgy, chemical and industrial engineering. The university is also a member of Association of Commonwealth Universities of the United Kingdom.
Whereas the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) has been a motivating force behind global efforts to advance scientific expertise in the developing world. It was founded in 1964 by the late Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam, ICTP pursues to achieve its decree by providing scientists from developing countries with the enduring education and skills that they need to enjoy long and fruitful careers.
International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) alumni serve as professors at major universities, chairpersons of academic departments, directors of research centres and ministers of science and technology in nations throughout the developing world. Many of them have been renowned in their own countries and internationally for their assistance to science and science policy.
Such workshops should be conducted as they are important for the development of the country. These workshops will lead towards educational advancements.
