History of sorts was made at the Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology (SSUET), Karachi, when the Guidance Centre organized a first of its kind leadership camp recently. 

“Such camps are designed for students who are interested in acquiring skills necessary to become successful leaders. The students join for the fun, the fellowship and the memories that will last a lifetime they also gained self-confidence, time management skills, goal setting abilities and a head-start on helping,” the Director Programme, Siraj Khilji, Advisor to the SSUET Chancellor, remarked. 

“At the centre it is our ambition to ensure the highest quality of counselling, guidance and assistance within special needs of education. We desire to transform ours into a model guidance centre whose work is to be based on specific concepts of support concerning academic assistance and inter-disciplinary foundation,” he explained.

“The counselling and educational efforts are being planned to co-ordinate effort with clear, prioritized goals and directions as we understand that the counselling and educational effort must be based on the development of inter-disciplinary knowledge regarding the specific educational difficulties and those institutional, individual, social and cultural needs,” Siraj Khilji, added. 

“The counselling and educational effort must be focused on results by adapting the effort to the individual student’s specific difficulties and to his or her academic subject and level. The aim of the whole exercise is to compensate for the difficulties to the extent that the students can meet the general and specific academic requirements for quality,” he pointed out.

The Chancellor, Jawaid Anwar, Registrar Syed Sarfraz Ali and Coordinator to Chancellor also visited the camp and appreciated the efforts made by the SSUET Guidance Centre. 

The Chancellor was highly appreciative of the initiative of the SSUET Guidance Centre and he expressed the hope that such leadership camps will be hugely beneficial for the students who are at the doorstep of entering into their chosen professional field. 

“The objective is to provide our students a solid platform and guide them in the best possible manner to give them a head start to their career,” Chancellor, Jawaid Anwar remarked.
