      1. Name: Zeeshan Safdar
        Year of Graduation: 2018
        Company: Global Software Consultants
        Designation: Software Engineer

        Before joining Virtual University - Software house, i was only familiar with css/html and had no experience on working on projects and lack confidence. After joining Virtual University - Software house I have great learning experience. All the teachers were very good and exceptionally cooperative && Professional. They work hard and ask us to do so. I have learned how to deal with pressure specially how to meet deadlines. We have series of Workshops in sequence, first of all work on Problem Solving and Logic building followed by Workshops on Requirement Engineering / Software Design and ASP.Net. In Parallel we have sessions on Javascript, Ajax, JQuery, MVC and these sessions help us to make our foundation strong. We have to go-through immense pressure with weekly monitoring of work and I believe this was turning point for me. It helps me to get job right after internship at there. I think every University should have a setup like this so that students should not only read theory but also learn how to implement it.

      2. Name: Tauqeer Chaudhry
        Year of Graduation: 2018
        Company: TheSeoTeam
        Designation: Software Engineer

        Alhamdulillah, Virtual University – Software House helped me a lot in gaining new skills, improving self-confidence & handling pressure. The environment and the mentors around were awesome. Things that i have learnt there are helping me a lot today and I am very much happy about. Skillset which I have gained there help me in landing in my job even before my graduation because we worked on latest in-demand skills with focus on implementation rather than theory only. Different Workshops / Sessions / Weekly Sprint-Reviews have enabled me to cope with challenges / pressure which I am facing in Professional life. I highly recommend this place for other students and I suggest that every University should have Professionals setup managed by Industry Professionals.

      3. Name: Muhammad Ahmad
        Year of Graduation: 2017
        Company: Gray Math Technology
        Designation: Team Lead

        I am Muhammad Ahmad. I was the student of BSCS (Hons) in VU-Software for the session 2013-2017. The best part of all these 4 years is the year spent in VU-Software house. On the day of interview for VU-Software House I was very tense as I didn't know much about programming. I got selected and that was the day when my life completely changed as I learned latest technologies which are much needed in Industry. The life at VU-Software was very challenging but with the guidance of team leads and the mentor Sir Sheraz I continued to learn throughout the year. Though we had immense pressure of work but it proved to very helpful in professional career. To conclude I can say that without VU software house I might not have secured a job, At least not so quickly after graduation. When I gave my first Job Interview in a software house, the interviewer was shocked about the knowledge I had at such beginner level. I was immediately selected for job. Currently I am working as a Software Engineer in Gray math Technology Co. Because of my familiarity with modern technologies Management has promoted me to Team Lead duties despite the fact that I have only one hand half year experience.
