The Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology (SSUET), Karachi, added another feather into its hat when two of its projects in bio-medical engineering and Telecom engineering won the UNIDO awards worth Rs three million. 

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) had, in March 2016, organized a contest.

Around 80-90 projects were initially selected from all over Pakistan with four from SSUET. Since then theses projects were being monitored and surveyed how to commercialize them. 

Out of total number of projects, five are to be selected for inclusion in the final round for the 15 K and 20 K US dollars prize money and to be taken to Silicon Valley USA as well while two from the SSUET have already been selected. 

The news about these SSUET achievements were broken by Prof Dr Haleem and Prof Dr Aamer during their speeches at the recent Orientation Programme its new batch of 2017 students held at the Karachi Expo Centre on January 18. 

The ORIC introduced this UNIDO contest at the SSUET and arranged the seminar for all the students to avail this opportunity.
