process. The challenge here is to mould individuals by
developing needed skills and values thus confronting the
challenges of building institution, society and the
nation”. “Developing good habit will contribute to
development of good character and at the present age of
technology, people must know how to combine technology
and emotion to become a better human being”, he added.
Earlier, in his welcome address, USTM Chancellor M.
Hoque said that teachers are the architect of society,

contributing to the values of the society they serve.
