These lectures were organized in accordance with IoBM’s strategic plan to enhance the student experience in academics and research through technology. The Institute’s Electrical Engineering Department and the Society of Eglence & Technologies (SET) collaborated with the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) Karachi, IET on Campus NED and Engineering Society to organize this event. The IET has been inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community to engineer a better world. As a diverse home across engineering and technology, IET shares knowledge that helps make better sense of the world in order to solve the challenges that matter. It’s why IET are uniquely placed to champion engineering. “IET Karachi Network” is one of local networks of IET. Mr. Talib Karim, President IoBM has been envisioning a closer linkage between the industry and academics. These lectures, therefore, aided to the President’s vision.

During these lectures, Zafar Faridi, Chairman IET Karachi delivered a presentation about On-campus activities for IoBM.
