NED & Alumni Giving

This forum is dedicated to discussing how NED alumni can play a role in enhancing the academic life, extra-curricular activities and international perception of their alma mater. This is well established tradition in the United States and, recently, IIT of India has started emulating this tradition. The result has been a remarkable improvement in the perception of IITs in the West. IIT graduates now come with a cachet rarely accorded foreign institutions of higher learning by US industry and academia. Can we, the NED alums, do the same for NED? Please offer your thoughts.

We need to be self-motivated to seek the resources to educate ourselves about our specialized field and our general education about the world to learn independently and think analytically and act without whining. This forum is dedicated to life-long self learners who have no interest in learning by rote just to pass the exams and get a degree.With all of the online resources availlable including free access to course materials at the top universities, abundance of online knowledge such as Wikipedia, it is now more possible than ever.

The obvious examples are the universities in US and Western Europe and the IIT system in India. What is your view of the state of science & tech education in Pakistan? How does NED stack up versus IIT? What can be done to enhance it? Please discuss it with focus on understanding the causes and finding possible solutions.

    How to Answer Common Job Interview Questions

    You can feel that familiar bout of anxiety starting to hit. Your palms are getting wetter by the minute and the knees are so weak you are almost struggling to walk straight.
