The Rector of University of Management and Technology, Dr. Hasan Sohaib Murad, has congratulated Professor Asad and has lauded his efforts for successfully establishing valuable academic linkages with top European and North American universities and institutions. These initiatives have resulted in actual research cooperation and faculty and student exchanges.
