Professional Grooming of the Engineers is of a paramount importance in the technological arena. Keeping in view this important aspect, PEC has made an elaborate program for the professional grooming of Engineers by incorporating COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT). By the Grace of ALLAH Almighty, CIIT Abbottabad is one of those Prestigious Institutions who were awarded subject license. In this regard, CIIT Abbottabad in collaboration with PEC/CIIT Islamabad organized subject one day symposium through Industrial Liaison Group of EE department.
Moving to 3G and 4G networks means connectivity to the Internet through high speed mobile broadband access and the availability of feature rich applications and value added services. Mobile Monday (MoMo) looked for answers and viable solutions when representatives of the leading mobile operators and service providers in Pakistan got together with some of the leading researchers on Monday, June 13, 2011. This event helped to have a close liaison and an open discussion forum between our faculty, students and industry.
Following were the Keynote Speaker/ Resource Persons:
Dr. Mehmood Ashraf Khan.
Chief Engineer, Electrical Engineering Department, Islamabad
Dr. Khurram Aziz
Broad band Optical Network, COMSATS-Abbottabad

Under the dynamic moderation of Dr. Shahid Khattak, Head, Department of Electrical Engineering, CIIT Abbottabad, panel discussion on the subject was conducted and all the resource persons acted as panelist. During the panel discussion, comprehensive and thought provoking questions/ answers were witnessed.
Subject International symposium helped a lot in professional grooming of the young faculty and final semester students. We sincerely hope that CIIT Abbottabad’s EE Department will continue holding such events in future as well for the professional grooming of its faculty.
