Punjab has received funding to establish chip design facilities at eight colleges

The Punjab government has granted PKR 41.75 million in funding to establish micro and nano electronic chip design facilities at eight universities across the province.

UET Lahore, UET Taxila, ITU Lahore, and Islamia University Bahawalpur are among the eight universities where these centres would be built in the current fiscal year. In the coming year, the MNS UET Multan, the KF UEIT Rahim Yar Khan, the University of Gujrat, and the University of Chakwal will receive the centres.

Keeping this in mind, Raja Yasir Hamayun, Punjab’s Minister of Higher Education, has launched a skills development effort in micro and nanoelectronics design technologies at the province’s institutions.

According to Raja Yasir, the country cannot afford to wait any longer because “leading players are already years ahead in technology development.”

“A project to provide software and hardware facilities for Microelectronic Design and Development at eight institutions has been approved to foster R&D culture and train teachers in the universities,” he said.

Essential courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels at these universities are among the project’s main goals. Students will receive the necessary training in the usage of commercial grade IC design and verification tools in these courses.

Graduates will be industry ready or require minimal training before becoming effective members of the IC design industry locally and worldwide after receiving these trainings.
