NUST School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is establishing a Linux Competency Center in partnership with IBM Pakistan and Pakistan Software Export Board (PSEB), with the aim of creating a resource pool of Linux and OSS experts for government & non-government organizations.
The centre will initially train the faculty members of IT and Computer Science. This will, in turn, enable the faculty members to educate their students in the open source technologies. There is also a plan to develop, in due course, curricula for Linux and Open Source Software in collaboration with IBM for inclusion in IT and Communication degree programs at NUST institutions.
Objectives: The aim of establishing this facility is to carry out research in open source code and security software.
