SPA inks MOU with Hunerkada
December 9, 2009
The School of Professional Advancement (SPA), University of Management and Technology (UMT) and Hunerkada signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Dec 09, 2009 at the UMT campus. Dr A Rashid Kausar, Pro-Rector UMT and Jamal Shah, a renowned TV artist, film director, painter, writer and academician represented UMT and Hunerkada respectively to ink the agreement. Dr Kamran Siddiqui, Director School of Professional Advancement (SPA) welcomed Jamal Shah at the campus and briefed the visiting delegation about future prospects of arts, textile design and fashion programs offered under the auspices of SPA.

Speaking on the occasion, Jamal Shah praised the pace of development made towards realization of UMT and future aspirations of its leadership to promote the knowledge of science and arts. He explained the progress made towards preservation and promotion of Pakistani art and culture through the platform of Hunerkada and said that the partnership with UMT would reinforce efforts in this direction. He said that Islam was not against art; rather it advocated that human spirit and passion should be used for the betterment of societies and art could meet this challenge without compromising on the universal principles of decency and morality.  

Expressing his optimism regarding the future of the ties between UMT and Hunerkada, Dr A R Kausar said that this relationship would strengthen with the passage of time. The talent and skills of our youth could now be channelized for projection of our national image and this strategic partnership would open new chapters of learning and developments for the youth of our country, particularly those seeking opportunities to have access to short courses in the fine arts, textile design, fashion and interior decoration.

At the end, the Pro-Rector presented a souvenir to the guest. Prior to his departure from the campus, Jamal Shah visited the textile laboratory and also gave autographs to the students of fashion and designing.
