Scientists Commend AIOU’s Role Promoting Material Sciences



On Saturday, scientists from home and abroad praised the role of Alama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) in advancing materials science and paying particular attention to nanomaterials, modeling and simulation.

They said at the opening ceremony of the fifth International Conference on Materials Science held here on the main campus of AIOU that they have made remarkable achievements in promoting quality education.

The three-day event was warmly welcomed by scientists and researchers from some famous universities. Professor Richard Bakere from the United Kingdom and Professor Hafzeez-ur-Rehman Hoorani, Director of the National Center for Physics at Quaid-i-Azam University, delivered opening speeches.

They congratulated the Deputy Principal Dr. Zia-Ul-Qayyum for his leadership role in promoting the country’s research-based culture and new learning practices based on contemporary needs.

Dr Richard Bakers noted that AIOU has achieved an unusual position in expanding the country’s education network through distance learning systems.

He said he was impressed by the enthusiasm of university students for being familiar with new learning methods.

Dr. Hafeez-ur-Rehman said that during the event, participants will discuss this topic, which is of great significance and beneficial to society. He noted that AIOU is working to strengthen research in the field of nanoscience.

Earlier, Dr. Syed Zafar Ilyas, Dean of Science, emphasized the goals of the conference and stated that it would publish about 80 research papers at its working conference. He thanked the Vice-Chancellor for his support for the event.

The conference, organized by the Department of Physics, aims to provide a forum for scientists and researchers around the world to exchange the latest research and development on all aspects of nanomaterials science.

He added that this will help engage academicians in research discussions and create opportunities for the younger generation to develop their expertise in the field of materials science.
