Masters in Innovative Technologies in Education at NUST

18 Jun


NUST is planning to launch a new program “Masters in Innovative Technologies in Education (MsITE)” which will be a two year long (30 credit hours) semester based program at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science within NUST . A background in technology and/or education is recommended but not required. Most courses require lab work and group projects and you will be spending your final semester working on your Master’s Thesis. The details are available at the following link



This newly started graduate program will provide a design space for mixing and matching of diverse disciplines and research areas thus creating disruptive technologies at the innovative edge of psychology, information technology, graphic design, story telling and drama. It will provide a practical forum to look beyond the obvious, to ask questions not yet asked and to provide innovative solutions that could dramatically improve the way people learn – not only for those who go to a school but also those who can not attend a conventional school.
Educational innovation, driven by a need for continuing education in the labor force, is transforming the global industrial landscape. Moreover, this need has also put a lot of stress on producing dynamic and diverse educational entrepreneurs as well as researchers who can steer the next revolution in education.  We are the first program in Pakistan that will address the deficiency of such individuals and aim to create graduates with the ability to “Learn, Think, Apply, Innovate and Educate”.

قومی شاعر کیا ہوتا ہے ہم اور ہمارے قومی شاعر؟

قومی شاعر کیا ہوتا ہے ہم اور ہمارے قومی شاعر

آج ٩ نومبر ہے یعنی حضرت علامہ اقبال (رح) کی پیدائش کا دن ہے . اقبال ہمارے قومی شاعرہیں . یوں تو قومی شاعر وہ ہوتا ہے جس کی سوچ اور فلسفہ اس قوم کی انفرادی اور مجموعی زندگی میں نمایاں ہو – قومی شاعر کے خیالات اس قوم کے لیے مشعل راہ ہوتے ہیں – قومی شاعر کے فلسفے پر چل کر قوم دنیا میں اپنا ایک مقام بناتی ہے –

اب بات ہو جائے ہمارے پاکستان کی . کبھی ہم نے سوچا ہے کہ ہم نے بطور ایک قوم اپنے قومی شاعر کو کیا مقام دیا ہے . ہمارے قومی شاعر کا نام تو ہر کوئی ہی جانتا ہے کیونکہ ہم لوگوں کو اول کلا س سے ہی یہ پڑھانا شروع کر دیا جاتا ہے کے پاکستان کس نے بنایا اور ہمارے قومی شاعر کون ہیں لیکن ہمیں کبھی بھی یہ نہیں بتایا گیا کہ قومی شاعر ہوتا کون ہے اور اسے قومی شاعر کیوں کہتے ہیں .

ہماری قوم نے نے تو اقبال کو صرف کتابوں کی حد تک رکھا ہوا ہے – ہر سال بعد اقبال کی سالگرہ پر پورے ملک میں چھٹی کر دی جاتی ہے اور دو چار چوٹی موتی تقریبات سے ہی کم چلا لیا جاتا ہے . آج ہم لوگوں کو اس دن یہ عزم کرنا ہوگا کہ ہم علامہ اقبال کو پڑھ کر اور انکا فلسفہ سمجھ کر اپنے آپ کو بلند کرنا ہوگا جس کا اقبال بار بار ذکر کرتے رہے .

خودی کو کر  بلند  اتنا کہ  ہر تقدیر   سے   پہلے

خدا بندے سے خود پوچھے بتا تیری رضا کیا ہے

اگر ایران والے اقبال کو پڑھ کر اور سمجھ کر اپنی صفیں درست کر سکتے ہیں تو ہم کیوں نہیں .
