It’s a matter of great pleasure for us to share an outstanding achievement of our student Aftab Ur Rehman (Department of Computer Science). After his graduation from GCUF, He is currently doing MS from here in Department of Computer Science. IEEE Computer Society has awarded him Richard E. Merwin Student Scholarship 2016 (USD 1000). Aftab is very active member of IEEE GCUF Computer Society and was student organizer in IEEE Pakistan Computer Society Congress 2015 (IEEE PSCSC’15) that was hosted by GCUF last year in April.

This scholarship is awarded by selecting few candidates all across the world to recognize and reward active student volunteer leaders in student branches or chapters who show promise in their academic and professional efforts. This scholarship was created in honor of the late Richard E. Merwin, past president of the IEEE Computer Society, to recognize and reward student leadership.

It’s an achievement for Pakistan, especially for GCUF that our student has won this merit scholarship this time.
