CM to perform groundbreaking ceremony of ITU’s new campus


LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif will perform the groundbreaking ceremony of Information Technology University’s (ITU) new campus here on December 20 (Wednesday).

According to a Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) spokesman, the new campus would be a state-of-the-art purpose-built main campus of Pakistan’s first research-focused university being constructed in the city.

In order to establish the campus, ITU had inked an agreement with Infrastructure Development Authority Punjab (IDAP) on June 12 this year.

The groundbreaking ceremony was being held on the first convocation of its first batch of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science students who were enrolled in the undergraduate Bachelors programme. ITU had also planned to increase the present number of 900 students to 1,500 in the next three years after the completion of the main campus.
