Pro-Chancellor of the International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) and President of Imam Muhammad Ibn Saud Islamic University, Professor Dr. Ahmad Salem Muhammad Al-Ameri, emphasized the critical need to keep up with the quick speed of technological advancement and modify educational institutions to fit modern needs.
He underlined that for educational institutions to serve humanity as best they can, they must continue to be relevant to society’s requirements.
During his extensive day-long tour of IIUI’s new and Faisal Masjid campuses, he gave this message.
The recently relocated Center for Advanced Electronics & Photovoltaic Engineering (CAEPE), housed in a newly constructed block at the new campus, was officially opened by Professor Dr. Ahmad Salem Muhammad Al-Ameri during this visit.
This demonstrates IIUI’s dedication to remaining on the cutting edge of innovation in the domains of electronics and solar engineering.
The CAEPE’s emphasis on engineering devices, materials, and systems at the micro- and nanoscale is in line with addressing important problems including energy, connectivity, and improving human well-being.
Its goal is to create a long-term source of research training to produce skilled labor while providing facility access services that meet national demands advance knowledge and address contemporary issues.
The institution’s commitment to modernization and the use of technology for research and teaching is further demonstrated by the opening of the smart weather station at the engineering block.
This facility is a big step in gathering precise weather data and monitoring, which is essential for environmental and meteorological research.
Professor Dr. Ahmad Salem Muhammad Al-Ameri also made time to tour the university’s female campus while he was there. He participated in a dialogue with the vice presidents, deans, directors general, and directors of IIUI.
These exchanges provide a useful forum for talking about plans and projects to improve the caliber and applicability of the university’s curricula.
By doing this, IIUI is able to maintain its alignment with the changing requirements of society and continue to generate graduates who are capable of taking on new possibilities and challenges.
Given that the IIUI Pro-Chancellor is also expected to attend the university’s 12th convocation, his historic visit to Islamabad is extremely significant.
His visit and the activities he spearheaded during this period demonstrate the institution’s commitment to quality in research and teaching as well as its role in developing technology and meeting societal demands to serve humanity by tackling the opportunities and problems of the modern world.
The institution has been successful in staying at the forefront of research and innovation, which eventually benefits society at large. Examples of this include initiatives in nanotechnology and smart weather reading.
