The technical visit is in line with Power Company’s vision to equip and well prepare these students with practical industrial exposure: Spokesperson KE
Karachi, March 29, 2016: K-Electric hosted the visit of NED University’s students at its power plants located in Bin Qasim and Korangi. The technical visit is in line with the KE’s vision to equip and well prepare engineering universities’ students with practical industrial exposure.
As per KE’s press statement, a group of 65 students from NED who are also the members of “American Society of Mechanical Engineers” and “Society of Manufacturing Engineers” along with faculty members visited Bin Qasim Power Plant (BQSP-1) and Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) Korangi.
While sharing experience about the visit, Maryam Khan, an engineering student from NED University said, “We have had many industrial visits but this was by far the best one. We learned a lot; we got the opportunity to practically see everything that we had been studying in theory. The environment was very friendly.’’
These technical visits are part of the knowledge sharing platform that KE maintains with engineering universities’ students.
Manoj Kumar, an engineering student from the same university thanked KE for giving them opportunity while he added, “Such visits allow students to understand and learn practical processes that probably one cannot learn in a classroom.”
Furthermore the students were given a safety induction briefing which was followed by a brief history of the plant along with a detailed tour of the plant. Various electrical installations, control room and monitoring areas were also shown along with safety measures, SOPs and other regulations which are followed by the power plants.
Commenting on this occasion, KE’s spokesperson said, “We believe that the kind of knowledge gained through this visit will assist these passing out engineering students to gain better understanding of the practical aspect of the theory that they were taught during their curriculum.”
The faculty members appreciated the time and effort that KE is putting in for the benefit of the students. The faculty members also showed interest in initiating long-term collaboration with KE.
