NUCES convocation, awards 383 degrees

Karachi, July 23: The National University of Computer & Emerging Sciences (NUCES) conferred 383 degrees to its students in various disciplines at the eighth convocation held on Saturday. The university awarded degrees to 31 students in Master of Science, 272 in BS (Computer Science), 62 in BS (Telecom Engineering) and 18 in BS (Computer Engineering).

Senator Nisar A. Memon, chief guest at the convocation, presented medals to meritorious students. Memon expressed his satisfaction with the overall improving standard of education at the university which has enabled 240 fresh graduates to get job offers from various companies. According to him, university education stands at four per cent and IT education at 0.5 per cent. Both figures show the lamentable condition of higher education in Pakistan.

"Pakistan has only 52 PhDs in IT sector, nine of which are from Karachi while the National University has three PhDs. It is a matter of pride for the university but much more needs to be done," said Memon to the graduating students.

The Rector of the university, Dr Amir Mohammad, informed the audience that the Federal Ministry of Information Technology announced an Outreach Scholarship Programme for the students of the rural areas to study in the BS programmes of Telecommunication Engineering, Computer Engineering and Computer Science in the top-ranking universities of Pakistan. It is heartening to know that 100 students, mainly those from rural Sindh, will be undertaking such programmes in the university's Karachi campus. He also disclosed that the university's Karachi campus will soon establish the first-ever Microsoft Innovation Centre in Pakistan. The news
