ISLAMABAD – Chinese Scholarship Council (CSC) has awarded scholarships to 12 National University of Science and Technology (NUST) scholars to undergo masters degree programme at Beijing Campus of North China Electric Power University (NCEPU).

The NCEPU is a premier university in the discipline of electrical engineering.

According to an official, during 2011, the NCEPU admitted five NUST scholars in MS Electrical Engineering on fully funded scholarships awarded by CSC, after a vigorous evaluation of the credentials of nominees of NUST. On the basis of outstanding performance of NUST scholars at NCEPU, the university offered more seats in MS programme for NUST nominees during 2012.
