Director CENTIN, Mr Rashid Hussain shared this exciting news: “I don't know how to express myself. UMTians have proven again and again, that they are at the top of everything, no matter- what field they are in, even if it is education, or extracurricular activities (winning inter-university cricket cup Clash 20) or going to competitions (last week- Fast business plan competition) and YES AGAIN, today UMT has won 3rd Prize in Young Entrepreneur Business Plan Competition' being held under the banner of the "LCCI Young Entrepreneur Business Plan Competition 2012".”
There were altogether 29 teams participated into this event. However, only 12 teams qualified for the final round. UMT was among those 12 qualified teams. Today, the final presentations were held at Chief Minister House, 90 - Shahrah-e-Quaide Azam, Lahore.
UMT team comprised of Shahzaib Omar, Hadia Zafar, Fatima Arshad, Hassan Ali Javed, Muhammad Omer, Wahaj Omer; Project Coordinator, Sundus Nazir; and Project Incharge - Rashid Hussain. Project was titled, "Mosquito Far Square". This is basically an electronic device that emits Ultrasonic Sound Waves through which the dengue carrying female mosquito gets repelled. The beauty of the device is that, it is one of its unique and innovative type in Pakistan and equally effective for the nature and eco system of the other harmless mosquitoes’.

The students developed this project during their Entrepreneurship class with day/night efforts and guidance of Mr Manqoosh-ur-Rehman.
It is worth mentioning that UMT students clinched top positions in Entrepreneurial Business Plan competitions being held by different authorities in a span of just 1 year, besides clinching 8th Inter-University Cricket Championship trophy.
“I think and believe that, this is just a marvelous performance institute could have produced in such a short period of time. With this, I thank again everyone at UMT for providing the required support again, especially to the faculty for grooming the students, for staff to make the things rightly available, when and where ever it has been required. And at most, Rector, Dr. Hasan Sohaib Murad to guide and encourage the students to achieve the set goals”, said Mr Rashid Hussain.
The Rector and the UMT community congratulates you all for this achievement once again.
