Chairperson TEVTA, Irfan Qaiser Sheikh while addressing a meeting with Business Enterprise Head of Microsoft in Asia, Faouzi Soussi here Thursday said the development of this module had been started by TEVTA up to the standards of Microsoft.
At present, IT courses are the part of all the Diplomas of Associate Engineer (DAEs) courses but now TEVTA would also include in its short courses, one and two-year diploma courses as well. Irfan Qaiser said after completion of their studies, students would have a chance to take Microsoft examination to become Microsoft IT Certified.
