Engagement with Industry

NORIIC Industrial Engagement Model

One of the major accomplishment is building NUTECH core team that consists of renowned industrialists as NUTECH Lead Industry Volunteer. NUTECH core team is our lifeline with industry. It has supported us and educated us on matters of the Industry. Our engagements with the core team has enabled us to achieve the position which we have today. A major aspect on which the core team has assisted us is the integration of Industrial Technical Vocational Educational Training institutes (TVET), Karachi Town associations, Karachi Chambers (KCCI), Pakistan Chambers (FPCCI) and other relevant entities. This integration has created a common platform through which NUTECH has been able to create an unprecedented Industry – Academia linkage

One successful outcome of our efforts has been our Industrial Engagement Model. To develop national industry ‘System Approach’ for NUTECH-Industry collaboration is essential so as to make such relationship permanent feature of NUTECH academics, research and support systems. As part of its efforts to develop such system of industry support on permanent basis, NORIIC has created various NUTECH-Industry Joint Collaboration Forums (NIJCF) which are designed to act as relevant platforms for the solution of all industry based and technology driven issues ranging from industry policies to technology research projects, industry labs development, technical advising and industry-needed technical and vocational skills.
