The Sir Syed Institute of Emerging Technology has been established at Sir Syed Tower Karachi. Lt Gen (retd) Moinuddin Haider along with President AMUOBA and Chancellor SSUET, Jawaid Anwar inaugurated the Sir Syed Institute of Emerging Technology by cutting the ribbon. Aligarh Muslim University Old Boys’ Association (AMUOBA) organised the event.
The institute will initially begin with cyber security course programme and later on many other technologies will be introduced.
Chancellor Jawaid Anwar said that the cybercrime is on the rise. Even some of the world’s biggest companies have fallen prey to cybercriminals, who have leaked sensitive data that put millions at risk. It is now risky to do business without taking the proper precautions.
General Secretary AMUOBA, Muhammad Arshad Khan in his concluding remarks said that the wives of King Shahjahan and King Edward died but King Shahjahan built Taj Mahal for her memorial, yet King Edward established a medical research centre.
It shows the difference of thought and priorities. Following the doctrines of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, we established academic institutions and started the project of 14-storey Sir Syed Tower. And today we are launching Sir Syed Institute of Emerging Technology at Sir Syed Tower.
