SSUET convocation on 29th

Teaching students to mind their Ps and Qs
Dr Saiyid Nazir Ahmad, vice chancellor, Sir Syed University of Engineering and
Technology (SSUET), a civil engineer by profession, comes from the genus of
teachers that are not confined to the monotony of teaching only. He educates the
students, trains them practically and most importantly takes care to imbue moral
values in them.
"Yes, it seems a bit strange for many but I do care
about training the students to make them a responsible member of society. All
universities confer degrees, we do the same but differ in our outlook when
grooming students," Ahmad explains. An engineering graduate from the Aligarh
Muslim University (AMU), he is one of the several examples of the institution's
discipline, refined mannerism and a blend of modern education and cultural
Ahmad has PhD in Soil Mechanics from the Imperial College,
University of London and has taught in the AMU, King Abdul Aziz University
(KAU), Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and the University of Engineering and Technology
before assuming the post of VC at the SSUET in 1996. He continues to teach the
students and has set an example for other teachers by not missing his classes.
Talking about grooming the students, he says that 75 per cent to 80 per
cent of the students learn during the four-year programme in addition to
becoming useful and law-abiding citizens, withholding the cultural and moral
values in the process. "There was a time when training of a child began at home
followed by mohalla, school, college and then university. It resulted in the
robust character building of the youth. Now the system has declined but someone
has to carry the torch, somewhere," Ahmad recalls.
As far as the faculty
members are concerned Ahmad informs that even the teachers are sieved carefully
before they are inducted into the university. "We stress upon hiring teachers
who will become role models for their students. They are attired according to
the noble profession they are in and their personality conforms to our culture
and religion," Ahmad claims.
The university that has about 80 per cent
male and 20 per cent female students, wear uniforms – a rarity in universities.
The female staff including teachers performs their duties from 9.00 a.m. to 4.00
p.m. and the students do the same. "There is no culture of teachers not taking
their classes on one pretext or other. Hence the students too are inspired and
seldom leave their classes," Ahmad says proudly.
He is adamant that his
university has the lowest fee structure among private universities – about
Rs5,000 to Rs6,000 per month. "Many private schools charge even more than this,"
he comments. "The university, though receives no grants from the government or
other sources, makes sure to help the needy students through scholarships and
freeships. We are trying our best to retain the spirit of the AMU where material
gain is considered to be the education imparted to the community," he adds. The
university has provided complete internet and intranet services to the students
and teachers for educational purposes.
Ahmad was proud of the fact that
every department in his university had at least eight to nine laboratories with
state of the art equipment. "The classrooms and the offices are air-conditioned
– a facility seldom offered by the private universities. We also pay handsome
salaries to teachers to allow them to teach without worrying about their
They are also saved by the poaching- allurement
from other universities to join them for higher wages," he explained.
The SSUET, according to the VC, is the pioneer in the field of
Bio-Medical Engineering. "Even in the USA, the programme is taught at the
graduate level. We fathomed the importance of Bio-Medical Engineering and
introduced the course, though we had to import very expensive equipment from
abroad," elaborated Ahmad. However, he lamented the fact that the machine and
similar equipments are not manufactured in Pakistan. The News
