March 10, 2012

More than 200 alumni along with their families attended special celebrations in a ceremony organized to acknowledge their contribution in their professional fields and to welcome them to their alma mater. The special networking and get-together session was organized by the Alumni Section, Office of Participants Affairs (OPA). The program initiated with the national anthem followed by recitation of some verses from the Holy Quran.

Rana Iftikhar Ahmad, Director, Participants Services, welcomed the guests. In his remarks, he said that ILM/UMT is proud of its alumni who are the best ambassadors of the values of professionalism, leadership and ethical standards of their alma mater. He added that an Alumni Center will be set up at UMT while alumni chapters are already being established in major cities of Pakistan. An ILMIAN Association managed by ILMIANS themselves is also envisaged for the future. He urged the alumni to help UMT graduates in job placements through their networking.

Among the many sources of entertainment for the evening were two plays performed by students through the UMT Dramatic Club. Three alumni received surprise birthday felicitations.
