10th Convocation of Defence Authority Degree College  Karachi for Women held

KARACHI: The 10th Convocation of Defence Authority Degree College for Women was held in the institution’s auditorium on Friday with University of Karachi Vice Chancellor Professor Dr Pirzada Qasim Raza Siddiqui presiding over the ceremony.

As many as 613 graduates of the session 2005, 2006 and 2007 were awarded BA, BSc and BCom degrees whereas 45 masters degrees were also conferred on the students.

Dr Qasim in his convocation address said that the nation has lagged behind in education dismally. He lamented that education has never been given its due priority in the past and the culture for learning and research could not be developed. He attributed this dismal state to the lack of political will and allocation of inadequate funds for education. He said that the real wealth of a society was the quality of manpower it produced and added that in the world of knowledge-based competition, quality and relevance of education were the key elements in national development. The VC advised the students to develop a strong sense of dedication and patriotism and stressed that educating the young generation is the only solution to cope with the present problems. Dr Qasim further said that it is the responsibility of the educators to bring a visible change in society. Education, he said, is the only hope for the nation’s betterment and salvation. He pointed towards the malice inherent in our contemporary education system, which lacked the necessary vitality. He observed that an educated person, apart from professional brilliance, should also have a versatile personality with an understanding of the humanities and liberal arts. He stressed on the empowerment of a large number of uneducated and neglected womenfolk in the country by providing them quality education. He also congratulated the DHA College for Women for maintaining its glorious tradition of getting top positions in university and board exams. He also appreciated the excellent student teacher ratio of 1:20 being maintained by the college.

Earlier, Principal Prof Nasreen Nasir, in her annual report, highlighted the academic and co-curricular achievements of the college. She said that the college imparted education to young women to nurture and develop their intellectual and physical talents in an intellectually stimulating environment. As many as 45 students of the college were awarded degrees in MA (Economic), 296 students were awarded BCom degrees, 87 students received BSc degrees and 230 students were given BA degrees in Humanities. app
