I feel extremely honored to lead the first public sector University of Technology in Sindh as the Vice Chancellor and welcome all the stakeholders, especially the young students.
Quality Higher Education has changed the destinies of societies world over, especially research in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) has provided exponential growth to the economy, disease mitigation and quality of human lives.
Considering the reality that education of modern times hinges around innovation, creativity, and skill development, The Benazir Bhutto Shaheed University of Technology and Skill Development is offering 4-year undergraduate degree of BSc Engineering Technology in the fields of Mechanical, Civil, Electrical and Electronics accredited with National Technology Council, Islamabad. Besides that, the University continues to offer quality education of 3-year Diploma of Associate Engineering after Matriculation.
The first batch of graduates of Engineering Technology is scheduled to pass out this year,after having been taught NTC approved curriculum where more emphasis is laid on laboratory Practicals, followed by 16 weeks Internship Training in the relevant Industry.
I am confident that synergistic role of Engineering Technologists as execution experts alongside Engineers as Design Experts and Technicians in support role will provide a boost to our Industrial Production and Economy, where we are still not at par with the world.
I, having decades long experience of noble profession of teaching in different capacities, urge the future students of this University, students who are presently enrolled and near future graduates, to think beyond grades and consider the degrees as supplement with the value addition of cutting-edge approach, prolific mindset & applied expertise. With this approach our youngsters will stop looking for jobs and start exploiting the unexplored and uncapped potential in the varying fields of economy, especially value addition to Agri-products, mines and minerals, digital economy, e-commerce and what not.
I would like to conclude by quoting Nobel Laurate Rabindranath Tagore that “The Higher Education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with our existence.”
