Congratulations Sir Asad Umar

Congratulations sir on your victory in By-elections. I am a recent Electrical Engineering graduate. and we have high hopes from you that you will play effective role in boosting industries in Pakistan.

Asad Umar in Election Campaign for NA-48

I would like to specifically draw your attention in Telecommunication sector in Pakistan.

Sir, There is no mobile phone and other telecom devices manufacturing plant in Pakistan. We have experts in all fields like in software development, hardware designing, pcb designing e.t.c. required for manufacturing process. We have great many people who are interested in RnD and we seriously focus to reduce the technological gaps that we have.

One of my concern is what is the future of Pakistan if there is no latest technology exist in Pakistan? How our future engineers learn the new technology without proper planning and without facilities available in Pakistan?

Engineers have skill to design and make products, but they can’t establish a production/manufacturing units. It needs money which engineering graduates don’t have. It needs support from investors. But it is saddening that our investors prefer to invest in land, commercial buildings and other things but not in technology.

Sir, all eyes are on you and looking forward to your useful steps inside the assembly and outside.

What most Engineers lack!

Engineering is a challenging career, not only for those who are/were academically weak or people who are not passionate about solving real world problems through electrical, civil, mechanical or other engineering disciplines’ intriguing practices. As a student, I, at times, feel that subjects like Mathematics, Physics etc do not have real world applications. Average engineering students, like me, assumes that once we graduated from reputed engineering institutes, all the hardships will come to an end and we will be perfect of engineering concepts and knowledge. But soon after starting careers, most realize that their academic education was just the beginning.
Rightly said by Carl Selinger in his book, ‘Stuff You Don’t Learn In Engineering School’,
“Soon after starting their careers, most realize that their academic education was just the beginning”

Whenever I think of enhancing my technical competencies, I generally rely on readily available sources: class lectures, books, websites etc. These sources help in learning technical theories, methods and tools required for enhancing technical abilities. But there are other subjects as well, generally which are not taught in engineering institutes. These subjects are as important as any other core engineering subjects. These includes

  • Communication and Interpersonal Competencies
  • Leadership Qualities
  • Business Skills
  • Professional Development Planning

Deficiencies in these areas can’t be solved overnight. Even the brightest engineers, after realizing the importance of all these competencies, find it makes their heads spin. They often don’t know where to start and don’t know how to go about developing these abilities.
