Keeping in view the dominant practice of skill -instilling community colleges in the Western world, Punjab Higher Education Commission in collaboration with Higher Education Department (HED) has also launched a Pilot Program for the “Establishment of Community Colleges in Punjab”. In the first phase, four colleges have been selected which would be further replicated in other parts of the province. At the formative phase, 2 -year Associate Degree (equivalent to Bachelors Degree) on semester system basis is being offered in Commerce. IT, Media and Fine Arts. Furthermore, these courses have been further skimmed into specialized areas to render highly skilled based education to students.
