Discussions on Town Planning And Architecture
Where does education in Pakistan stands also depends upon how much students in institutions get to know about practical implementation for what they learn in the classroom. Unfortunately, in Pakistan, there is a gap between industry and academia. One way to fill this gap is to arrange the discussions by the mentors, who have years of experience for working in the practical field. CIVCON 7 at UET Lahore also arranged the discussions by industry gurus. The expert engineers and town planners shared their thoughts on experiences in the field an enlightened the path for students, who are eager of knowing where to go after crossing the university gate.
The administration also arranged discussions with the keynote speakers who are social activists and an example of how to bring a positive change in society for showing care towards the most vulnerable stakeholders.
Musical Concerts At UET Lahore
It is obvious that events at universities are incomplete without musical concerts. So the Civcon 7 featured the musical performances by campus singers and a closing ceremony concert by the heartthrob Bilal Saeed. Such a night of entertainment also ensures the lively atmosphere at campuses and a way to break the monotonous life that typically roams around the lectures, exams, syllabus books and other such not so attractive stuff.
