The significance of research and innovation in contributing towards the country’s economic strength is incontrovertible. This is particularly true in the current era where a knowledge-based economy has emerged as a major driving force in rapid national development.

Knowledge strengthens the national resolve and capacity to grow, and higher education has a cardinal role to play in this regard. University education has emerged as the most powerful growth engine for research, and University of Wah aims to excel as a premium institution in the region by offering professional education at under-graduate and graduate level.

It is heartening to note that University of Wah has embarked upon a dynamic and rewarding academic journey by launching a multidisciplinary professional journal “University of Wah Journal of Science and Technology (UWJST)” in the fields of Engineering, Computer Science and Basic Sciences. I am confident that this Journal will provide a platform to young researchers to document their research efforts, and will also further promote research culture in the University, a culture that is based on values of ethical research and exchange of ideas without prejudices.

I wish to express my appreciation to the Vice Chancellor and the Editorial Board for their commendable effort in ensuring that a high-quality journal is shared with the academia. I hope that the readers will benefit from this effort by reading, analyzing and reflecting on the articles published in UWJST.
