The Applied Technologies Institutes of NLC (ATINs), Tang International Education (TIE) Group (China) and the Zalmi Foundation (ZF) inked an MOU on a dual-diploma, joint-technical education programme for students in Pakistan.
Students now will be able to study 2 years at ATIN Mandra, Rawalpindi and one year at a counterpart institute in China.
The basic purpose of collaboration between ATIN, TIE and ZF (a strategic partner of Tang International in Pakistan), is to give Pakistani students international exposure (latest techniques & technology), and an international diploma to increase their chances of better employment in Pakistan and abroad.
Initially this split education project will provide education and training to 75 students in three trades - Civil Engineering, Information Technology and Mechanical Technologies.

Our objective is to improving people's lives by empowering them with knowledge that will help them in seeking careers and finding jobs across Pakistan and internationally.
