The Governor Sindh in efforts for encouraging students to attain internationally recognized certifications has been suggested to arrange an Inter-university IT competition next month.
The meeting was arranged at the house of Sindh governor and was attended by the Higher Education Commission Regional Director—Javed Memon, Senator Rukhsana Zuberi and twenty-five vice-chancellors of different universities present in the province of Sindh.
Zuberi, who gave the suggestion also briefed the students regarding the reason behind the competition. She informed that Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship (MOS World Championship) which is done in America, is a great chance for students.
MOS World Champion is a global competition which is conducted and under the test students are tested on their skills on Microsoft Office applications like Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
She indicated that people are still not aware of the opportunity and said that the inter-university competition would be making students more aware and would be encouraging them to participate actively in the event.
IT is playing a significant role in the modern economy and its influence would be surging with time. The Governor Sindh said that the inter-university IT competition is among the many competitions targeted at attracting youth towards IT and improving the IT sector.
He stressed upon the significance of these activities as they open new doors for Pakistan’s youth enabling them to participate on the international level. The governor also encouraged the university vice-chancellors to give more opportunities to the students.
He said that he is in full support of the idea and that he would be helping them in every possible way to arrange the event.
