New School of Science in Pakistan

Officials at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) have announced that about 200 students will enrol in its new School of Science and Engineering (SSE), which will begin its first semester of under-graduate classes next year. The School will offer degrees in a wide variety of fields, including biology, chemistry, mathematics. physics, and electrical, mechanical, biochemical and industrial engineering. With a projected budget of $125 million, SSE is being modelled on the paradigm for higher education followed by such elite universities as MIT, Caltech and Stanford. The School will also create a $1-million endowed chair in honour of Abdus Salam, ICTP’s founding director.
