FAISALABAD: The Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) is working on a comprehensive strategy to strengthen industry-academia linkages and help the industry implement knowledge-based innovations by the end of 2016. This was stated by PEC Chairman Javed Saleem Qureshi while addressing a seminar jointly organised by The University of Faisalabad (TUF) and Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCI) on Tuesday. “Faisalabad has now taken a bold and positive initiative by organising a seminar to develop sustained linkages between industry and academia.” He said that a committee should be formed, consisting of successful businessmen and renowned academicians to discuss the issues and pave the way for further cooperation. Qureshi said that he had transformed PEC’s perception of a licence issuing authority to a think-tank that is tasked to formulate curricula for engineering subjects.
