UAAR convocation: 38 students awarded gold medals
Rawalpindi: Thirty-eight students of various disciplines were decorated with medals and over 1,000 graduating students were awarded degrees at the 9th convocation of University of Arid Agriculture Rawalpindi (UAAR) on Tuesday.

Fourteen PhD scholars were also awarded degrees on successfully completing their studies.

Punjab Governor and Chancellor of UAAR Lt Gen (r) Khalid Maqbool presided over the convocation and awarded degrees to students. Higher Education Commission (HEC) Chairman Dr Attaur Rehman, UAAR Vice Chancellor Dr Khalid Mahmood Khan and faculty members were also present on the occasion.

Maqbool called upon the graduates to apply their knowledge of modern technologies in practical life. He urged the university faculty members to encourage and facilitate students in focused research. Besides the conventional agricultural education, the livestock sector should be emphasised to overcome the food shortage, he added.

He said agriculture was lifeline of Pakistan. Huge population, climate change and world economic indicators are putting a lot of pressure on our agriculture, he said, adding, UAAR is playing a leading role in human resource development to face the agricultural challenges. He asked the university to focus on agricultural productivity, soil conservation, quality of seeds, water management, agro processing and waste management.

He also appreciated the HEC for providing financial support to the university and closely monitoring its progress.

Earlier, Dr Khan said academic departments of UAAR had increased from 11 to 27 with the initiation of Faculty of Animal and Veterinary Sciences and Faculty of Forestry, Range Management and Wildlife. He said five projects costing Rs166.310 million had been finalised and the Punjab government approved five more projects amounting to Rs195.706 million. He said UAAR's budget for 2008-09 had been increased to Rs310.910 million against last year's Rs 268.843 million budget.

Khan said they had reorganised and reequipped all UAAR laboratories and allied facilities. He said they had also set up an agriculture research farm on 2,000 kanal land at Mauza Koont on Mandra-Chakwal Road.

Talking to journalists, Maqbool said the higher education standard in the country had improved due to the efforts of President Pervez Musharraf and HEC during the last eight years. He said in future there would be acute shortage of food all over the world and university students and scholars should do more work as how to overcome this crisis. Daily Times
