Punjab Technical University (PTU) has decided to accelerate the development of the standards of its education and infrastructure. To better the standards of the Varsity, various central universities from across the country will align with PTU.
PTU Dean NP Singh said that the distance education students will also be treated as the regular students from this session, which will provide better opportunities and facilities for the distance education students. They will also be able to participate in the various sports and cultural events organised by the varsity. Singh further said that job placement will also be facilitated for the distance course education students. Singh highlighted that around 255 learning centres have been closed in recent past after discrepancies in the audits surfaced. He further said more than 200 centres are under the scanner for running multi-university institutes in Haryana.
The varsity administration has decided to form special teams at zonal levels to prevent cheating in exams. He further said the university also plans to introduce new syllabus. The new syllabus will emphasise more on practical than theoretical. PTU administration has also made agreements with Punjab National Bank and HDFC Bank for educational loans.
