CSO Holds Webinar on Engineering Grad School
Career Services Office (CSO) held a webinar on August 26, on the theme Engineering Grad School to teach students that a different discipline can also be chosen as a postgraduate degree.
The webinar was conducted by Iman Abid Khan, Assistant Manager, CSO. A team of panellists were carefully selected from the LUMS alumni database. All had graduated in different years from LUMS but in different disciplines. The panellists were Jaffer Haider (BSc Computer Sciences, 2006) Nabeel Abdur Rehman (BS Electrical Engineering, 2013) and Usama Javed Mirza (BS Physics, 2013)
The panellists shared their candid experiences with the attendees to keep the session light-hearted all the while sharing their incredible journeys with real-life examples. Students were given an insight into the ‘when, how and what’ of a Master’s degree applications procedure. Examples were shared to give the students a realistic timeline and requirements for pursuing higher education.
Panellists shared their respective email addresses and LinkedIn profiles to be contacted by the students for any remaining questions. A feedback survey and a thank you email was circulated amongst the attendees post-event.
