ISLAMABAD: Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) has upgraded its science labs at an international standard that facilitate its students to undertake quality research work, enabling them to give necessary academic input for the country’s socio-economic development.
This was stated at a three-training workshop held here on Friday to acquaint students about the know-how and use of the new state-of-the-art labs’ equipment, being maintained at the main campus of the university.
The workshop arranged by the physics department was presided over by AIOU Vice Chancellor (VC) Dr Ziaul Qayyum. It was participated by the students and resource persons of local universities other than the AIOU.
AIOU’s well-equipped labs meet the latest research’s needs which are compatible with the international standard, the VC hoped that the students would make the best use of them for achieving excellence in their respective academic discipline.
Dr Qayyum said that AIOU could offer the facility of its rich scientific labs to students of other educational institutions, which otherwise could not afford to have such infrastructure network.
