IEEE SS CASE IT Student Branch in collaboration with IEEE SS CASE IT Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) and SS CASE IT Adventure Club held a joint venture to visit Karachi and compete in the annual Grand Electronics and Robotics Spree, GEARS’19 organized by PAF Karachi Institute of Economics and Technology (KIET).

The plan was for 6 days stay in Karachi in which we competed in the competition and in the free time, our team decided to explore the city of lights as for many members it was their first time in the South of Pakistan.

Event was very well planned and organized by the students under the supervision of our Faculty head: Dr. M. Saleem.
