When students were feeling bored after taking a tough spring semester. There was surely something cooking up at our end and we geared up to provide them with some excellent opportunities that helped them hone their skills and brought them closer to practicality of the world.
On the lighter side, this enabled the students in a way to beat the extreme heat of this summer.
Old Students Association of FAST (OSAF) in collaboration with FAST-NUCES offered workshops on Basics of Web Development and Graphic Designing for current students of FAST. Muhammad Ateeq Azam from Batch 2011 taught the Basic Web Development Short course, While Ch Umair Ahmed & Ehtasham Khan from Batch 2011 provided a unique and real time project based training workshop on Graphics designing.
Huge number of students took interest and joined these workshops. Ms Aqsa Sarfraz from Placement Office of FAST played a pivot roll in this whole process. These workshops will definitely unleash the creativity and will play a key role towards a successful earning career for students.
