The Scheme of studies and different level programs will be on building block concept. To provide students the exit at all levels with certain skills and certificate / Degrees for their well absorption in the market. Ministery of Science and Technology will be requested to establish a "PTC - Pakistan Technology Council" like PEC - Pakistan Engineering Council to register and regulate the practice of the graduate of University of Technology. The Public Sector hiring authorities will be requested to prefer these technologies graduates at par or batter than respective engineering graduates. This will eliminate the difference / biasness in Technical and Engineering Education.
