At the 4th Symposium on Technological Impact on Society, Conference Hall Taimani Campus

Kardan University's Faculty of Engineering and Technology organized the 4th symposium on 'Technological Impact on Society' on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in Conference Hall Tiamani Campus. The program aimed to observe Engineering and Computer Science students' creative and practical work and its applicability in the Afghanistan context.  

Fourteen teams from the Engineering and Computer Science Department of Kardan University introduced their respective projects covering a wide range of topics from a 'Tennis Stadium to Baraki Intersection, Zero Net Building, and more.

The University leadership team, Faculty Deans, lecturers, students, and guests had participated in the event and observed students' project blueprints and functionality. The event was open to the public—and students from across universities participated in this symposium and gained some useful and practical insight on how technology impacts society from a broader perspective.

"Students should work on practical projects and put their learned theories in practice, which ultimately positively influences the community. We want our students to move on with the new trends, such as using technology and the internet in the contemporary situation. The symposium is designed to encourage students to come up with competitive projects, and the first three teams will receive monetary awards," said Dr. Amir Zada Ahmadzai, Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Technology.

"We have taken practical measures to mitigate the traffic level in 'Baraki Intersection' in our proposed project. Doing so would enable us to reduce greenhouse gases, fuel consumption, and increase service level," said Haroon Rashid Safi, Kardan University alumni (2019).

To streamline our students' activities around Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG4: Quality Education, and SDG8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, Kardan University consistently endeavors to organize symposiums and practical work opportunities for students to synchronize their theoretical lessons with more practical vision.
