Thanks for your comments, certainly you have experienced these kinda forumns more closely.....but let me share couple of points...

1) we have couple of mailing lists for NEDians to say in touch but most of the students are not aware of dat

2) web is the most effective way to share our thoughts (scholarship program: transactions can be made onlilne etc, mentoring forum: detailed profile of alumni with search capabilities and students can contact us)

3) online books, resources that can be added later....in fact that should be done by NED Admin but I dont think daz gonna happen in next decade


So, my point is if we can create a web its easy to share with students and they can get any info they want from there (just one platform)

I know its a lot of effort and you are right you wanna figure out if its worthit.....which is perfectly alright BUT I THINK its worth trying


Solution::: Can we suggest the web development as final year project for NED students?? Do you think this can do??

When I had time, I worked on that but I was depending on folks in karachi to register NGO / NPO but no one really wanted to do all the paper work and therefore I almost had to quit the idea....

Couple of students contacted me for scholarship but I really didnt have any good answer for them


Bottomline::: These ideas are not new, all we need is a proper representation, that is accessible to students [we dont need to depend on any mailing lists, any other mode of communication, like notice board :) etc......just one single platform]

Looking forward to hear from you more on this

Take care,

Respected Sir Riaz,

Your prompt response reflected your ruly, kempt and neat disposition. It indeed gives me an alloyed emotion of pride and mirth to have earned the honor of interviewing a man of your stature. Certainly, it would add a new moon to our magazine. Thank you for granting us the access.

Afterwards, I would like to brief to you a little about the magazine I have been working for, for the last four years.

Sir, in my mail prior to this, I mentioned that the name of the magazine is 'The Watt'. It is the sole annual official magazine of the department. It has had four previous editions which were all acknowledged in good esteem. In the past, the magazine was a mere 30 page magazine. But this year, owing to the insistence of the pupil and preachers, we have set to work on a 80 page edition. Obviously, it is no trifling errand to materializing our dream. The magazine is not only floated in the department of Electrical Engineering but is also circulated in the department of Telecommunication Engineering, the daughter branch of Electrical. It is an annual magazine and every year we go with as many as 800-1000 copies, hinging upon our fiscals. The printing cost, as we have been told by the official printers of NED, is around 150,000 PKR. Our current monetary figure rests at 120,000 PKR all of which wad accumulated by visiting a lot many sponsors. We are far from our target and neither are there any more hopes from any other company to stand with us in good stead in our time of need.

If you could show us a little glimmer of hope in the vast desert of deprivation and despair, our long-woven dream would no longer be a mirage. I should only be too glad to apprise you with any other information that you may want to know regarding the tabloid.

I shall soon post you the questions that we have worked-out for your interview. We are all conducive to suggestions and counsel so do let us know should a find something amiss with our queries.


Editor, The Watt

Thank you very much Riaz Bhai. Please feel free to use my comments with or without my name anywhere. ISRO is not coming upfront with actually what happened to the spacecraft. It is a great set back to their space program. I am sure they are busy analyzing the data and will put out a report in six months (available only to the top govt officials). We will find out more in the coming days.
Ramazan Mubarak to you and the family.

Respected Sir,

This is to kindly draw your attention and cordially invite you to the 5th annual all Pakistan Student's Project Exhibition and Competition (SPEC), organized under the proficient supervision of the electronics department of one of the most reputed and alleged engineering universities of Pakistan, the NED university of Engineering and Technology. This year SPEC 2010 is being held on 19th April, 2010.

Last year your contribution was of tremendous help for us in organizing such a successful event. This year along with all the competitions held last year we have come up with a new competition named as "Alternate Energy Competition" which will provide innovative and feasible solutions for the current energy crisis in Pakistan. The event will serve as a platform for all the undergraduates to showcase their technical skills and will surely enhance their abilities for a better performance in their future careers. We have Express News as our media partners this year.

Your generous contribution and sponsorship would be of great assistance and would certainly add to the success of our event. We await your support and look forward to extending our sincerest gratitude for lending the needed support.


Dayab Hussain,

Marketing Manager SPEC 2010

    Solar Power Boom in Pakistan

    Falling solar panel prices and soaring rates for grid electricity are driving a renewable power boom in Pakistan. A second factor spurring the growth in clean energy installations is the requirement of major western apparel brands for garments and textile manufacturers to switch to clean energy. As a result, the solar panel imports in the country jumped from 2,800 MW in 2022 to 5,000 MW in 2023, in…
