Speaking on the occasion, eminent economist Dr. Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad, Chief Patron, USET said, “The objective of this university is to contribute towards the sustainable development of the country by developing skilled people and supporting employment. The students of this university will be able to learn, think and ask questions which are the three main steps of earning knowledge that ultimately helps people to apply their knowledge in their respective fields.
