Nabeela Umer also met Chancellor Jawaid Anwar and Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Vali Uddin and discussed various proposals for further improvement of the program. She remarked that it is for the first time that the government has launched free Hi-Tec courses for the students to increase the chances of employment. Time now demands us to focus on updating with the western world. Students are our assets. They have to enhance the resources of the country.
Speaking on the auspicious occasion, SSUET Vice Chancellor said, “according to an estimate, only 1.5% young population of the country can avail higher education at university level due to various socio-economic reasons. It seems that economic development can take place by promoting vocational training for the youth, especially those who are unable to get higher educations.”
He pointed out that the university seeks to integrate higher-level education and corporate sector’s demands to emerge as full-fledged metropolitan university oriented to address the social, economic, environmental and technological issues. Sir Syed University seeks to accomplish its mission in collaboration with the government and its public sector institutes.
Moreover, the university has developed good linkage with the industry. It is, therefore, in a good position to provide internship and employment opportunities in diverse fields to its students through its partnering organizations.
On the occasion, SSUET Registrar said, “due to the remarkable efforts made by NAVTTC, the youth of Pakistan now capable to come up with successful stories. Today is certainly an eventful occasion because the first batch of the NAVTTC from SSUET is receiving their certificates. The students should be indebted to the Government of Pakistan and especially to the NAVTTC for equipping them with skills that will make them stand out amongst others in practical life and future adventures.
