NPTC is functioning from 1995 under the direct orders of the then President. Bright students from all over the country have been selected in it. These students after doing there F. Sc. or A levels got admission in prestigious universities of the country and abroad. After leaving NPTC Camp, they have developed a strong connection with it. In this connection some of the alumni were of the view that a body, which comprises of NPTC alumni, should be formed. This body aimed to spread the message of NPTC to all those parts of the country where is not heard of. Dr. Abdullah Sadiq, the then Rector PIEAS, very kindly agreed with the proposal, which was put forward by Al Hasanat Rasul, Mehreen Alam, Saleh Bin Tariq and Seemal Mumtaz. So, the first get together of NPTC was organized at PIEAS during the first camp of NPTC 4. It was very kind of Dr Abdullah Sadiq to Alumni Get-together an annual event. These alumni are now an integral part of the STEM careers programme.
A brief Intro about the voluntary help of Alumni is as follows:
They help in the Invigilation process during the Screening test. In some previous camps, IPhO, IMO and our other alumni (who are pursuing their higher education in the subjects of Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry or Biology) help in their conduction. Some alumni act as resource persons for the students who cleared the test and are waiting to participate in the next camps. Alumni send Questions for the Question bank, do research regarding the course of Screening test and the Camps. These Alumni also guide the new alumni and students for their higher studies in the colleges.
It may be mentioned that alumni of our earlier contests and members of Pakistani Physics Olympiad Teams are now pursuing their higher studies in prestigious universities at home and abroad e.g. LUMS, The Agha Khan University, NUST, PIEAS and GIK Institute here in Pakistan and MIT, Stanford and Harvard universities, Caltech, IIT Chicago, Toronto and McGill universities in North America.
We are also attached with each other as an organization and also help each other in what ever way we need. So we welcome you to our body and invite you to participate in different activities mentioned above.
