Office of Dean of Computer and Mathematical Sciences has a well-established tradition of holding an annual faculty get-together. This year it was held on Tuesday, June 18, 2019, in order to welcome new faculty, give farewell to outgoing faculty and to congratulate the faculty members who got promotions. Chairpersons and the entire faculty was invited to join at this auspicious gathering from all three respective departments Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics. This was much appreciated by the faculty. Small tokens of appreciation had also been presented to the chairpersons and to the faculty members who had significant contributions.
The celebration was started with a welcome address by the Dean. Our worthy Associate Vice Rector for Academic Affairs, Dr Gloria Calib was the chief guest. She was invited to share her thoughts and was being acknowledged by the souvenir.

And, Last but not least, the event was concluded successfully with the following thoughts of our respected chairpersons.
Dr. Aasia Khanam (HOD, Department of Computer Science)
It was a wonderful event to celebrate the end of the academic year. A commendable activity for faculty to socialize, welcome the new ones and acknowledge each other’s achievements.
Dr. Shabnam Malik (HOD, Department of Mathematics) She could not join this year, as she was in Iran to present her research paper but participated through her message.
The annual faculty get together arranged by the office of Dean of Computer and Mathematical Sciences is really a great opportunity to get to know each other, celebrate yearly achievement and to get familiar with new faculties from other departments.
Dr. Sharoon Hanook (HOD, Department of Statistics)
Faculty get together is a wonderful tradition Faculty of Computer and Mathematical Sciences have. It provides an amazing opportunity to all the colleagues to get together and have some time to appreciate the contribution of each one of us to strengthen FCCU, moreover, it provides a good environment to recuperate after a busy academic year. No doubt the food/Hi Tea always serves as a cherry on a cake.
