Karachi University violent students

KU teachers set deadline for violent students
Karachi, Sep 15: The Karachi University Teachers Society (KUTS) has given the University of Karachi (KU) administration a three-day ultimatum to take action against students who manhandle teachers.

A KUTS meeting, chaired by Prof. Aqeel Ahmed, was held on the growing number of incidents in which students misbehave with teachers. The actions KUTS will take against such incidents in the future were also discussed.

The teachers stated that the external 'political' elements entering KU create a lot of friction and cause problems.

'These elements carry weapons and brandish them in front of other students,' they revealed, adding that such an environment will affect the students.

Teachers were manhandled on the same day two student organizations clashed in KU, killing three students and a man. The incompetence of the university security office was blamed for being a major reason behind the lawlessness on the campus.

KUTS members also criticized the university administration's ineffectiveness and stated that if it doesn't take action against misbehaving students within three days, the teachers will resort to extreme measures, including boycotting classes.

The teachers also asked the administration to notice that officials are not taking actions against the continuing activities of student organizations. Many teachers attended the meeting, including Prof. Moonis Ahmar, Sadiq Ali Khan, Dr Riaz Ahmed, Dr Khalid Iraqi, Dr Zafar Iqbal, Saba Masood, and Dr Zahoorul Hassan Khan. Daily Times

Only 26 buses for 26,000 KU students
Karachi: Some 26,000 students of the University of Karachi (KU) are facing immense hardship owing to the non-availability of sufficient transport facilities despite the fact that the fees is increased by 10 percent every year.

Sources in the KU transport department said that only 45 point-buses (popularly known as žpointsÓ) were available with the transport depot, of which only 26 points were in running condition.

The sources said that six out-of-order points had not been repaired for the last one year due to the delaying tactics of the transport in-charge. 'These buses are parked in the depot and are rusting away,' they said, adding that out of the available 26 points, two had been allocated to pick and drop the children of teachers and Rangers officials, while just 24 points catered to the needs of 26,000 students.

The sources said that the administration had completely failed to extend the points service to students from far-flung areas of the city, including Balida, Naval Colony, Zia Colony, Memon Goth, Shireen Jinnah Colony, Gardan, Lyari and others.

They said that the running points were dangerously overcrowded and even 100 to 120 students travelled in buses which had only 45 seats, causing many serious incidents in the past. In 1999 some 16,000 students were enrolled at KU, and 22 points catered to them. Now the number of students has increased but the number of buses for the students is just 24.

Former City Nazim Naimatullah Khan had announced donating three points for KU, of which one bus was delivered in his tenure in 2003, while the rest of two buses were delivered by the current city government in 2007, sources said. 'The city government at the time of handing over these points to university had announced to provide two new point buses to the university every year but they failed to keep their word,' they said.

Sources claimed that an amount of Rs175,000 was there in the university's contingency account. This could be used for the maintenance of faulty points, but university officials were not ready for it.

The sources said that the administration was earning millions of rupees from fees from more than 0.1 million external students, but it seemed it was not ready to spend these funds on the welfare and facilitation of students.

The sources said that the KU administration had even failed to get assistance from the Higher Education Commission (HEC) in purchasing points while other universities including the Mehran University of Engineering and Technology and the Dawood College of Engineering and Technology had successfully obtained buses for their students from the HEC.

Sources said that although the KU administration had sent a summary to the HEC demanding 100 points, the proposal had, however, not been followed or pursued. KU Transport Committee In-charge Dr Zulqarnain Shadab said that the university was considering increasing the number of points by two every year. He conceded that the present fleet was insufficient for pick and drop services.

SSUET students invent biomedical equipment
Karachi: Students at the biomedical engineering department of Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology (SSUET) have devised equipment that can be used in hospitals and laboratories for research.

Dr M.A. Haleem, Chairman of the department of biomedical engineering, said that the students had designed the biotelemetry-based ECG, micro controller-based blood warmer, temperature compensated digital pH meter, the Blind People Can Read SMS device, the infant incubator, and had redesigned the pulse oximeter with Matlab (Mathematical Lab) Interface.

Haleem spoke about what the field of biomedical engineering entails.

"Biomedical engineering combines engineering expertise with medical needs to enhance health care," he said. "Students choose the field for the excitement of working with living systems and to apply advanced technology to the complex problems of medical care."

A biomedical engineer designs computer systems to monitor patients during surgery or in intensive care. These computer systems are also used to monitor healthy persons in unusual environments, such as astronauts in space or deep sea divers. Bioengineers are responsible for designing and constructing medical equipment such as cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators, artificial kidneys.

Faisal Azhar, who graduated from the department of bioengineering in SSUET in 2008, was responsible for redesigning the pulse oximeter with Matlab Interface. Azhar topped his department and is a junior lecturer in his alma mater. His equipment displays a pulse rate and oxygen saturation on a computer, called an oxigraph. This oxigraph can be used for medical, sports, and research purposes.

"It is cheaper than similar imported equipment, but its function is not inferior to them," said Azhar. "Hospitals and laboratories are using this device for patient care and research."

Murtaza Halai is another SSUET ex-student of the bioengineering department, and also teaches at his university. He developed the temperature-compensated digital pH meter. "The pH is the measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution," said the young scientist. "If the temperature-compensated digital pH meter is manufactured on a commercial scale, we will get pH meters at cheaper prices, and save precious foreign exchange."

Rabia Rehman is another SSUET bioengineering student who graduated in 2008. She, too, is a junior lecturer at her former university, and designed and produced the infant incubator. Health professionals have seemed eager about the equipment, but owing to a lukewarm from sponsors, the project has not taken off. The incubator is said to be on par with international standards, displaying all the major specifications of a functional and safe infant incubator.

Haleem is proud of his department, and claims it is the best in Pakistan. "The biomedical engineer is a health care professional, a group that includes physicians, nurses, and technicians," he said, but lamented the lack of recognition of medical engineering. He expressed disappointment at the non-committal attitude of the industry and government departments concerned.

"People do not know about the role of a biomedical engineer," he said. "We need recognition from the authorities and the society." The News
