Madrassa students outperformed dozens of colleges and universities at the 19th National Engineering Robotics Contest (NERC) hosted at the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST).
The event, which is a collaboration between NUST and the STEM Careers Programme of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) Pakistan, aims to boost robotics research in Pakistan.
Between July 11 and 15, participants from Pakistan’s schools, colleges, and universities fought for top honors in the automation and robotics categories in the much-anticipated event. One of the contenders, Madrassa Jamia Baitussalam, stood out and excelled, earning recognition and admiration.
Baitussalam Welfare Trust, the organisation behind Jamia Baitussalam, expressed gratitude in a tweet, thanking God for their team’s amazing accomplishment in the National Robotics Contest.
NERC served as the institute’s last peak of achievement after it had already won many competitions. The students worked tirelessly to put together this spectacular event. Jamia Baitussalam took first place in the Modular School category and first and second place in the Ready to Race category.
