SU Organizes Software And Hardware Exhibition At Larkana Campus

In conjunction with the Hyderabad Information and Software House Association (HISHA) and Gaxton, a high-level exhibition of software, applications, and models created by final-year students at the Sindh Agriculture University’s Information Technology Center in Tandojam was held.

Meanwhile, a job fair was organized by IT-related private companies in Karachi and Hyderabad to offer internship and employment opportunities to the students.

The mega-event was officially launched on Monday by Dr. Fateh Marri, SAU’s vice chancellor, and Ms. Tanzeela Ume Habiba, the chief minister of Sindh’s special assistant for information, science, and technology.

The Sindh government is working on numerous projects for the youth in Sindh, and various programs are being launched, as Ms. Tanzeela Ume Habiba stated when speaking at this event. According to her, the young people are working on business-related projects, AI, and agri-tech in response to market demands; this exhibition is proof of the young people’s talent.

Information technology is playing a significant role in the development of all sectors, including the medical, agricultural, engineering, livestock, manufacturing, and e-business ones, according to Dr. Fateh Marri, vice chancellor of SAU.

He claimed that the projects and models created by university students are of a high calibre, and that by using IT in agriculture to export agricultural products and gain access to the global market, the GDP of the nation can rise.

With 5.5 million children being born each year, according to Dr. Bhawani Shankar Chaudhry, a distinguished national professor and the head of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Karachi, it is essential to improve children’s nutrition, use resources responsibly, and practise sustainable agriculture.

He claimed that our youth are creating information technology-related projects for new businesses and connections between business and academic institutions to make them more commercially viable. He stated that we would cover half of the cost for 12 members of the SAU’s IEEE.

Miss Florence Rolle, head of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in Sindh, said that Sindh Agriculture University is playing a major role in research and extension work in agriculture and is offering services in terms of agricultural development and women’s inclusion.

Dr. Jan Muhammad Marri, Pro-Vice Chancellor, Sub-Campus Umerkot, and Dr. Aijaz Ali Khooharo, Dean, Agricultural Social Sciences Faculty, said that information technology has changed the world in a few decades and that the world’s economic and business activities and markets are just a click away.

In their speeches, Ms. Mona Shah of HISHA, Mukesh Kumar of SMEDA, Project Head of NIC Syed Azfar Hussain, and others expressed appreciation for the projects completed by university students and stressed the need to strengthen the technical ties between academia and business.

On the occasion of exhibition of software, the IT students have created software for agriculture, health, monitoring, quality detection, artificial intelligence, smart health care, various animal and insect monitoring systems, mobile applications, and other models. Students and representatives from industry showed interest in the 40 projects that were displayed for exhibition.
