Punjab Technical University has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) for setting up an Institute of Excellence in Chandigarh.

"We are happy to invite the University of California to set up their campus in New Chandigarh Education City that will be spread over 2000 hectares in the city. I assure foreign institutes of all possible help - be it permissions, sanctions and clearances; or infrastructure including land. The state government shall bear all the cost. As of now Delhi is the education hub in the North. However we wish to change this and present Punjab as a better alternative. If we are to export manpower to developed countries which have largely ageing population, our youth should be competent enough to contribute in this globalized atmosphere. For this we need institutions here that impart quality education," said Sukhbir Singh Badal, Deputy Chief Minister, Punjab at the MoU signing.

"Academic ideas should have no boundaries. The objective is to create a world class technical education institution to support advancement of aspirations of people of Punjab and India. This is in accordance with UCSC's strategy to expand its role in education and research outside US," explained George R Blumenthal, Chancellor, UCSC .

Plans are currently being made for the institute to commence teaching by 2015.
