Be socially responsible
Dr.Shaukat Ali Mirza encouraged students to be socially responsible. In his address, he said that the word engineer meant genius. Genius is the one who finds solution to the problem. He asked to students to find solutions to the problems faced by fellow countrymen. He also stressed that no government could manage the demands of citizens. Hence, young engineers need to contribute to the society. He observed that EWB fills the gap as there is no scope in the present education system to build social responsibility.
