On March 10, Pakistani chapter of American Society of Mechanical Engineers organized the first ever Engineers Week in Pakistan. The event was attended by a large number of engineers, students, entrepreneurs, government officials and managers. Following is the official press release
The Pakistan Section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers organized the first ever Engineers Week in Pakistan at the Marvel Hotel in DHA, Lahore on Saturday. The event was attended by industry professionals from all over Pakistan along with a huge number of engineering students.
The event focused on networking where new talent got the opportunity to learn from the experience of senior engineers and professionals. The event was attended by a large number of professors from the Engineering Universities who helped bridge the gap between industry and academia. Among the attendees were corporate managers, CEOs, entrepreneurs, educationists, consultants, government officials and students. The attendees discussed how professionals can help solve the current crisis situation in Pakistan and how to maximize the potential of resources as well as utilizing the great potential in the youth. The event also featured musical performances to celebrate the engineers week for engineering professionals.
The organizing committee at ASME remarked that it is pleased to bring the Engineers Week to Pakistan. There are many challenges facing our world that require immediate engineering solutions. At the same time,
we are challenged to prepare the next generation of talent by helping to remove the social,education and economic barriers that deter young students from engineering and technology education and careers. ASME along with its partners delivers programs locally, nationally and internationally to achieve this objective.
“ASME and its partners recognize that they are working to cultivate and celebrate the engineering profession. We want to create more opportunities for our young talent in Pakistan. We have very bright minds in our society who lack opportunities to learn, grow, excel and deliver. We strongly believe that through a strong partnership between the academia and the corporate sector and a little help from the government, we can extract the true potential of our resources. It is critical to create think tanks of experts to drive the national policy.” – Usman Bin Younos, Chairman ASME Pakistan
ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 120,000 members in over 150 countries worldwide.
