A Review Meeting held with Foreign Interns at COMSATS Secretariat
A Review Meeting held with Foreign Interns at COMSATS Secretariat

Eight foreign students studying at COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT) are doing internship at COMSATS Headquarters. The batch was inducted in March 2017 for their professional development, as well as to further strengthen the organization’s liaison with member and nonmember countries.

On June 3, 2017, a review meeting was held with these talented students to assess the outcomes of the efforts made by them for establishing links between various member countries of COMSATS and the Secretariat. The meeting was chaired by the Executive Director COMSATS, Dr. S.M. Junaid Zaidi. Among others, the meeting was attended by the Advisor (International Coordination), Dr. Abdul Aziz Khan, and Advisor (Programmes), Mr. Tajammul Hussain. The former is also mentoring the foreign students.


The amount of work done by the interns during a short period of just two months was appreciated. During this time, they had identified new research institutions for collaborations, suggested improvements in the working of International Thematic Research Groups (ITRGs), and created new inroads through highlighting the work being done by various Centres of Excellence (COEs) under the umbrella of COMSATS.

Encouraging the interns on their performance, the Executive Director tasked them to: (i) document their activities at the Secretariat so far, and (ii) develop country-specific projects to make a comprehensive S&T profile and develop concrete linkages of COMSATS with the reputable research centres working in those countries.
