Expressing his views, the Chairman of the Higher Education Commission Sindh, Prof. Dr. S.M. Tariq Rafi said that action is louder than words. We talk a lot but practically we do nothing. The curriculum should be designed according to the modern trend of education. Universities should educate students according to the industry’s demand. Improvement of the faculty is also needed. Lectures of the industry profession should be a part of the syllabus. Universities should sign MoUs with the companies to connect their students to the industry. In Western countries, students spend two years in a university and two years in industry for their 4-year course program.
On the auspicious occasion, Chancellor SSUET, Jawaid Anwar, said that Career fairs provide students with the chance to meet employers face-to-face, to learn about current vacancies and opportunities available, and to market themselves to prospective employers. A job fair is also an opportunity for a company to promote its name and brand to more people and to network with other employers.
Vice Chancellor SSUET, Prof. Dr. Vali Uddin said that new avenues are emerging. Students today have more opportunities than ever before. Technology is changing rapidly. Today, it is not enough to create awareness about higher education, but vocational training in the subjects for the students is also an essential part of education. To achieve the target, all universities, industries and organizations need to make joint efforts. A job fair serves as a public relations agency for any company, offering on-spot jobs.
President of the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry Iftikhar Ahmed Sheikh said that unless academia is connected with the industry, the pace of development will not be fast. Only the students of the universities can bring innovation, but it is very important to connect the curriculum of the universities with the needs of the industry.
Dean, Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Prof. Dr. Mohammad Amir said that a job fair is an excellent idea to provide internships and employment to students. On this occasion, students also come up with new ideas for their own unique projects.
Dean, Faculty of Computing and Applied Science, Prof. Dr. Muhammad Asif said that the job fair plays an important role in connecting students with the industry and meeting the top executives of industrial organizations and getting jobs. Provides useful career advice and guidance.
Chairperson CED, Dr. Shakeel, presented the vote of thanks.
