Social Awareness club

Education is aimed at producing graduates with the necessary academic and technical knowledge in different disciplines. We must, however, not forget that it should also be aimed at nurturing graduates with a reasonable sense of social responsibility, so that they can behave as responsible and rational citizens who are aware of the current problems, challenges, opportunities and alternatives to resolve conflicts in society
Students have to be aware of the values, causes, consequences and implications of issues from multi-disciplinary perspectives. Only through such multi-disciplinary and cross-curricular thinking can our students develop objective, rational and critical thinking. The social service undertaken by the students of this group include energy conservation, environmental issues, and Alcohol and Drug awareness. AIDS awareness, gender equality, heritage, and traffic and hygiene awareness. 
As such, our young people can be nurtured as responsible, reasonable and informed adults.
