The NED University of Engineering Technology Saturday held a ceremony to celebrate the issuance of a commemorative coin of Rs 100 and a stamp of Rs. 20 by the Government of Pakistan to mark the 100-year academic excellence of the varsity.

According to a university spokesman, the Prince of Wales College was established on August 29, 1921, and was later renamed NED after Nadir Shah Adalji Dinsha. Due to the Covid-19 situation, a short event is being held at the City Campus while engineers from around the world virtually participated in the event.

The NED VC Prof. Dr. Soroush Hashmat Lodhi on the occasion said that the issuance of this commemorative coin and stamp by the Government of Pakistan is very commendable. He appreciated every person associated with the varsity for playing their role in the development of the institution.

 “We want modern education and technology in the engineering sector, which is why our engineers are recognized nationally and internationally,” he added. “We are launching civil engineering admissions at the Thar Institute this year so that more capable engineers can make the university famous all over the world,” he said.
