the Daily Times reports: "The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has decided to establish a network of internet terminals for the NWFP University of Engineering and Technology in Peshawar. The Departmental Development Working Party approved a Rs 35 million project in its meeting on Monday. The main objective of the project is to establish a university intranet that will include all its officials, departments, hostels, remote campuses and affiliated colleges as a part of network that will not only communicate and interact amongst themselves, but will also link universities all over Pakistan. Such a set-up will automate offices as well as improve the academics of the university. The project will also benefit the general public in terms of getting remote access to UET Peshawar for information."
