HYDERABAD: The first ever ‘Technology Incubation Center’ (TIC) has been set up in the Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET), University of Sindh Jamshoro in a bid to help the passing out students start various businesses and earn money by opening their own companies instead of waiting for public sector jobs.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dr Muhammad Siddique Kalhoro, said in his presidential remarks that the Technology Incubation Centre will function under the office of research, innovation, and commercialization (ORIC) and that the university will support it to the fullest degree feasible. According to him, graduating students were obliged to work in the centre for a year or two in order to be prepared to deal with business-related issues and start their own firms. “Learn and earn” is the definition of incubation. As a result, whatever students learn on campus during their studies should be used to develop their abilities, create a business, and contribute to the development of the community.
He went on to say that launching a business may help more unemployed youth find work, and that there was no shortage of talent in the country, particularly in Sindh, but that the youths simply needed to be given opportunity.
Dr. Kalhoro claimed that Sindh University has more teaching departments than any other university in the province, and that as a result, the incubation centre will be able to function more successfully and earn money.
