ISLAMABAD: The US-Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Energy (USPCAS-E) at the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) held its first graduation ceremony yesterday the 18th of April.  Ninety-four students received Master of Science degrees in Energy Engineering. Federal Minister for Power Division Awais Ahmed Khan Laghari and American Ambassador David Hale spoke at the ceremony.

Ambassador Hale commended the students for their work and encouraged them to apply their expertise.  “With the skills you’ve gained here, you are now equipped to tackle Pakistan’s most vexing energy challenges,” he said.  “Your achievement, and the building we are standing in today, is a testament to 70-year partnership between the United States and Pakistan to build a brighter future for the citizens of both our countries.”

Federal Minister Laghari also congratulated the graduates and called them “a highly valuable addition to Pakistan’s resurging energy sector”, adding that specialized centers like USPCAS-E would be instrumental in providing sustainable and renewable energy solutions.

The USAID-supported USPCAS-E program is a partnership between Arizona State University and Oregon State University and NUST and the University of Engineering and Technology Peshawar. —PR
