KARACHI: Students of Usman Institute of Technology (UIT) exhibited their talent through their final year projects at an exhibition and job fair 2018 organised at the institute on Saturday.
The exhibition provided a platform to students of engineering and information technology to showcase their projects they had been working on during their final semester.
Federal Minister for Information Technology and Telecommunication Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui was the chief guest at the event. Mehran Sugar Mills CEO Ibrahim Hashim and some other notables from General Tyres and IBEX Global were also present on the occasion.
Speaking on the occasion, the minister said it is a great idea to invite prominent industrialists at the exhibition because such events minimise the gap between the students and the industry. He also appreciated the creative and hard work of the students.
UIT Director Zahir Ali Syed visited a number of projects and hailed the efforts of the students. The event provided students with an opportunity to interact with people in the industry, he said. “Our students did a terrific job as several projects are industry or research-based and cover a range of disciplines.”
A large number of students, parents and teachers attended the event to see projects of the graduating students.
