On 20th and 21st April 2019, students from the Department of Computer Science participated in Computer Project and Exhibition Competition (COMPPEC) which was held at NUST College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, Islamabad. More than 100 teams from about 30 universities across Pakistan participated in various categories of COMPPEC. 3MT (Three-minute thesis) competition was also part of this event. We are delighted to inform that Mr Nabeel Zafar, an MS student at the department of Computer Science was awarded a “Merit Award” at 3-minute thesis competition. He is conducting research titled “Investigation of key Project Management components to overcome software failures in Pakistan” under the supervision of Dr Saba Khalil Toor and Dr Mubashar Mushtaq. Nabeel’s achievement is considered remarkable owing to the fact that this event was mostly dominated by PhD students from established programs.
