2008 US Convention in ConnecticuttEdit
On November 1, 2008 the NED Alumni Association of New England hosted NED Alumni 4th annual convention at the Marriott in Farmington, Connecticut. The conference was designed to help establish a more effective collaboration between NED University and its Alumni in the United States by:
- Discussing the help that Alumni can provide to NED University of Engineering and Technology (NEDUET);
- Discussing current ranking of NEDUET in Pakistan;
- Explaining the significance of curriculum and technology in an institution and how NED standards differ from other top-notch institutions in countries as US and India.
The convention was highly successful. It attracted an attendance of about 150 in the morning session of panel discussions, while in the evening the dinner and entertainment session was attended by over 400 guests. These guests had traveled from all parts of the country including California, Texas, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, and Canada.
