UMT-IIE Student Chapter wins Gold Award 2012!
The Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) Student Chapter at UMT is the premier organized campus chapter. It was founded in January 2011. Prof. Farhan Daud Qazi has served as the faculty advisor of the IIE Student Chapter since its inception.
University of Management and Technology is the only university from Pakistan that has received the Gold Award. This award shows how UMT's Industrial Engineering program students are willing to help each other and serve their community. Their willingness, hard work, commitment, and team work brought this important and prestigious award to UMT. We will soon be arranging a celebration event at UMT-IIE Student Chapter along with our members because it is a big success for all of us!
Students visited local heavy mechanical industries gaining knowledge about the on field industrial engineering applications; organized various functions including membership camp, oath taking ceremony, and orientation for new students, seminars and lectures on important IE topics such as Arena Simulation software. First time ever from Pakistan our student members participated in the Annual Rockwell's Arena Simulation competition and this year participating again. We also conducted the first election in our organization giving chance to the new leadership to come forward and lead the organization to new heights. These are just some of the great achievements of our newly born student chapter which is "God wiling" destined to become one of the best run student chapters of industrial engineering profession in Pakistan.
