UET Students Visit Roshan Packages Flexible Plant
“The Only Source of Knowledge is Experience” – Albert Einstein
The role of any organization should not just be to earn money but also to give back to the society, especially the future generations. And we can only do that by transferring practical experience as well as knowledge to the next gen. A group of 38 students of M.Phil. in Food Science and Applied Chemistry visited Roshan Packages Flexible unit this week from the University of Engineering and Technology. The basic idea of the visit was to deliver practical knowledge to the students regarding flexible packaging manufacturing and its standard parameters. Roshan Packages flexible plant manufactures wrappings and films for products such as personal care, snacks, shampoo, confectionary, pharmaceuticals, detergents, processed food, oil and ghee, ice cream and dairy to water and beverage industry.
Students were welcomed along with their lecturer Dr. Sobia by Roshan Team Mr. Waseem, Mr. Huzaifa and Ms. Maryam Zulfiqar. They were given brief instructions regarding safety & measures that are strictly complied within the plant premises. After that the students were directed towards mess area where they were shown the brief introductory video about Roshan Packages history and the processes that are being carried out at Roshan Packages flexible plant. At the end of the video, students enthusiastically asked some technical questions which were answered by the Quality Control expert Mr. Abdul Rehman. Food Safety Instructions were also given by Sr. Executive Quality Assurance team Mr. M. Huzaifa. After the engaging Question & Answer session students were served refreshments after which they were taken for the visit to production areas. All the queries from students were answered side by side to satiate their curiously which was peaked during the whole visit. Following a scrumptious lunch, students were presented souvenirs along with the Certificate of Appreciation from Roshan Team.
Quality Control expert Mr. Abdul Rehman demonstrated the significance of such visits and internships as these activities serve as a bridge between student’s academics and their professional career.
