Habib University is engaging with and learning from the best practices of established institutions such as LUMS School of Science and Engineering (SSE). LUMS SSE has pioneered research-based learning in Pakistan and their curriculum and laboratories are exemplary in innovation and contextualization. An important step in academic connections was undertaken when the LUMS Physics Lab announced to share their expertise and develop and transfer a set of thirteen physics experiments to Habib University. This will engender the spread of technological expertise and cutting edge knowledge for the benefit of science and the society at large. We at Habib University appreciate the graciousness LUMS SSE has shown and hope that this creates the basis for long term collaboration and partnership between the two institutions.
