A University is the highest institution of learning. It helps a nation produce leaders in the fields of industry and commerce, science and technology, and arts, as well as all other disciplines of life. A university thus has an enormous responsibility that can only be fulfilled by cultivating, nurturing and mentoring young minds, employing the best of available human and material resources.
These are indeed lofty ideas, but so are the dreams of all of us at the Punjab Technical University. In fact, PTU is fast moving towards its dreams, helped by the continued support of the Punjab Government on the one hand and you on the other. PTU is a multi faculty Institution and a pioneer in modern education ranking among the top most universities of the country, which besides all other disciplines has a dedicated directorate of distance education, catering to the quality education requirements of the students who are unable to attend regular classes.
Various initiatives have been taken to make sure that the fruits of education reaches where it is required the most. The initiative taken by PTU to waive off the university's fees for underprivileged students coming from various sections of the society is yet another step in this direction. With the ultimate objective of imparting high quality education, the University has set for itself high standards of scholarship. The responsibility for achieving this goal rests mainly with PTU's administration that will have to ensure that the faculty and students have all the necessary facilities, a prerequisite for effective and uninterrupted learning..
PTU prepares courses of study for online delivery and self-study; and our students obtain quality learning by taking highly enriched modules of instruction and by undertaking academic exercises in a sequential manner. Its method of learning is through the online and offline study of lessons prepared by subject matter experts and moderated by the faculty. The academic programmes we offer will not only provide the students with a wide range of courses to suit their individual needs and ambition, but will also nurture their sense of purpose and vision.
Most importantly, PTU has a clear vision for the future, so be a part and experience innovative learning! In short, the University strives at standing for high quality teaching, outstanding student support, and excellent personal and professional development.
I personally look forward to having you with us to make this a reality.
