SSUET convocation on 29th
The 11th Convocation of Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology (SSUET) will be held on March 29, at 10am in which 983 students of the BS and MS programmes will receive their degrees. The position holders in each discipline will be decorated with gold, silver and bronze medals on the occasion.

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 values.

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 financial limitations.

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
