The Chancellor of the Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology (SSUET) Jawaid Anwar firmly believed that his institution holds a prominent place in the academic sector due to its high standard of education and the training it imparts to its students.
Pointing out that this is an era of knowledge-based economy in which small countries such as Singapore and South Korea have excelled, the Chancellor asserted that keeping the importance of education in mind, the access to, and use of modern technological education are central to social development and the key to the evolution of human civilization.
“Keeping this important factor in mind, the SSUET has been established to advance the concepts and ideology of the great thinker, scholar and social reformer, Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, who not only promoted education but was instrumental in the progress of Muslims and Islamic renaissance,” the Chancellor said.
Chancellor Jawaid Anwar informed that besides new programmes, the university has introduced new engineering and science departments keeping the present day challenges in mind
"We have given a new direction to SSUET to meet all the standards set by Higher Education Commission (HEC) and to make the university an exemplary institution so much so the HEC has maintained the highest rating for the university,” he concluded.
