Master’s Thesis Defense Presentation: Amna Batool and Sameea Ashraf
ITU takes immense pride on the successful completion and approval of final thesis of two of its Master’s students, Amna Batool and Sameea Ashraf. Amna, presented her thesis on ‘finding technological intervention to reduce maternal mortality’ to the evaluation committee which included illustrious and top-notch faculty members including Kentaro Toyama, who’s an assistant professor at University of Michigan, Samia Razaq Khan, Dr. Mohsen Ali and Dr. Saeed Ul Hassan.
Sameea Ashraf, another candidate brimmed with passion and ardor to do something meaningful for Pakistan, defended her comprehensive thesis on ‘digitization of IMCI guidelines to improve child healthcare practices.’ Both the thesis were defended on March 25th, 2015 and involved a thorough scrutiny of all the aspects of the research with questions related to the substance, meaning and the usefulness of the research in thesis. Almost all the faculty members and MS students passionately attended and participated in the public defence presentation and gave their useful feedback in a polite and civilized manner. The grade of the thesis, however, depended on the core evaluation committee.
