EME students were lucky today that they got some career counseling today. Members of the Alumni and speakers from NUST HQ held two separate sessions at the ASG Lecture Hall and Akhtar Saeed Auditorium respectively.
The session at the ASG lecture hall was the beginning for the series of career counseling talks to be held by Wahaj Tanvir. Wahaj Tanvir is from DE 25 Electrical Engineering and is currently working as Network Consultant Engineer with Cisco Systems Inc. He was accompanied by Ahsan Rasheed Ghani also from DE 25 EE. He is currently working as Wellsite Drilling Engineer with Dubai Petroleum. It was an informal and interactive session. It kicked off at around 10’o clock and was attended by more than fifty students from the senior and junior degrees. The session concluded around 11:30 AM and the timings for the future sessions are going to be 10:00AM to 12:00AM.
The topic of the discussion was ‘Life outside the University.’ Questions from the students led the discussion to other topics like change of career path and going to work out of your field, working for defense organizations, pursuing a master’s degree and what to do after it, interviews and presentations. He exerted the students not to make their career and themselves limited to one and only one field but to consider them as professionals able enough to work in any environment. Wahaj Tanvir shared his experiences and decided to include various other topics in the coming sessions. In the future sessions he is not only discussing the career outside the university but also the doe’s and don’ts at the college. So, from now on all degrees should look forward for the next session.
The topic discussed at the auditorium was ‘Importance of Career Counseling’ and was attended in good number.
(* Both of these sessions were really good but I would soon be discussing what students really demand from such sessions.)
