SMIU has become a world-class varsity: VC

Karachi:July 24:Sindh Madressatul Islam University (SMIU) has transformed from a typical public sector school into a world-class varsity within the last 23 years, said the vice-chancellor Dr Muhammad Ali Shaikh during a meeting of senior management and deans of the university on Friday.
According to Dr Shaikh, when he joined SMIU 23 years ago, the university’s conditions were miserable. “There was no drinking water available at the university and the students used to go outside for water,” Dr Shaikh said.

About 1,500 students have submitted online forms for admission against 200 available seats at the varsity’s five departments, Dr Shaikh said. “One can judge from this that SMIU is getting more importance day by day due to its quality of education,” he added.
