I congratulate Government of Sindh who has taken the initiative and efforts for up-gradation of Govt College of Technology (GCT) / Petroleum Technical Training Institute (PTTI) Khairpur into the Benazir Bhutto Shaheed University of Technology and Skill Development Khairpur Mirs, Sindh, Pakistan. The Act of the University was passed on 22nd April, 2016 by Sindh Assembly and the same was notified in Sindh Government Gazette. These efforts of Government of Sindh will definitely reduce poverty in Sindh Province by producing skilled work force through this University. The skilled / technical education is the only type of education that can bring technological revolution in the province.
I am happy to say that the Petroleum Technical Training Institute (PTTI) – Centre of Skill Development, the Benazir Bhutto Shaheed University of Technology and Skill Development, Khairpur Mirs is announcing admissions in 1st Year Diploma of Associate Engineer (DAE) in different disciplines and also one year Diploma and certificate trainings in various skill development courses for academic session 2017-18. Moreover the University is expected to announce B.Tech, M.Tech and PhD admissions in near future. The University believes in qualitative skilled and technical education with hands on practice.
Being the first Vice Chancellor of the University, it is my preliminary responsibility to provide congenial educational environment to our students and ensure to equip the existing labs with the state of the art equipment. This will provide practical exposure and hands-on practice to the students of technical and vocational education to acquire modern practical knowledge as per the requirements of National and International Labour Markets.
I am thankful to the Secretary Universities & Boards, Govt. of Sindh and Managing Directorate Sindh TEVTA, whose constant support will enable us to prove this university a world class Technical University.
