بارشا کرکی آسٹریلوی یونیورسٹی کی ڈگری سے آگے کے ڈیٹا کے بارے میں آپ سے بات کرنا چاہتی ہیں

سڈنی، 18 اگست 2021 /پی آر نیوز وائر/ ۔۔ جب بین الاقوامی طالبہ بارشا کرکی نے یونیورسٹی آف ٹیکنالوجی سڈنی (یو ٹی ایس) میں انجینئرنگ کی ڈگری شروع کی تو اس نے کبھی سوچا بھی نہیں تھا کہ ایک دن وہ ٹیک میں ماہرین کی نمائش کرنے والی ویڈیو سیریز کا چہرہ ہوگی۔اس طلبا اور المنائی کی کامیابیوں کے حوالے سے  اس 10-07 ستمبر کو یو ٹی ایس ورچوئل اوپن ویک میں مزید سنیں۔

آج یو ٹی ایس ماسٹر آف انجینئرنگ اسٹڈیز کے 2008  گریجویٹ ماسٹر آف انجینئرنگ مینجمنٹ سڈنی میں قائم ڈیٹا مینجمنٹ کمپنی نیٹ ایپ کے پری سیلز انجینئر کے طور پر کام کرتے ہیں۔ جب وہ ڈیٹا مینجمنٹ حل ڈیزائن نہیں کر رہی ہوتی ہے تو وہ آل اباؤٹ ڈیٹا ویڈیو سیریز کی میزبانی کرتی ہے، دیگر آئی ٹی پیشہ ور اورصنعت میں موجود خواتین کو اچھے ڈیٹا سے متعلق بات چیت میں مشغول رکھتی ہے۔

ان کا کہنا ہے کہ جب یہ خیال پہلی بار ترقی کے مراحل میں تھا تو میں نے کہا، ‘اگر میں کچھ کرتی ہوں تو کیا میں آئی ٹی میں خواتین کے لئے ایک سیشن ہائی جیک کر سکتی ہوں؟ کیونکہ میں واقعی اس کے بارے میں پرجوش ہوں،” ۔

میں یہ بات چیت کرنا چاہتی تھی کہ جہاں خواتین کو مدعو کیا جاتا ہے اور ضروری نہیں کہ ہم آئی ٹی کی فیلڈ میں خواتین کے ہونے کی بات کر رہے ہوں بلکہ یہ دکھا رہے تھے کہ خواتین کس طرح بہترین انداز سے کام کر رہی ہیں۔

برشا کا ٹیک میں ایک خاتون کی حیثیت سے سفر یو ٹی ایس سے شروع ہوا جو روایتی طور پر مردوں کے غلبے والی ڈگریوں میں خواتین کے فروغ کے مواقع پیدا کرنے کے لئے پہچانی جاتی ہیں ۔ انہوں نے اس کورس کا انتخاب کیا کیونکہ انہوں نے اپنی تکنیکی انجینئرنگ کی مہارت ، منیجر اور لیڈر کی حیثیت سے اپنی صلاحیت دونوں کو منوانے کا موقع فراہم کیا۔

ان کا کہنا ہے کہ لوگوں کو دیکھنا کافی اچھا تھا لیکن پھر انجینئرنگ کی تعلیم کا اختیار بھی موجود ہے۔

ان کی ڈگری کی خصوصیت سیکھنے کے نقطہ نظر سے ہٹ کر برشا کا کہنا ہے کہ طلبا کو اپنے مستقبل کے کیریئر کے لئے تیار کرنے کے لئے صنعت پر مرکوز مواقع کی ایک وسیع رینج تک بھی رسائی حاصل تھی۔

ان کا کہنا ہے کہ مجھے یاد ہے کہ ہمارے پاس صنعت کے مقررین تھے جو آکر ہم سے تھری جی، فور جی، اوپٹس کے لوگوں، دیگر تنظیموں کے لوگوں کے بارے میں بات کرتے تھے۔ یہ بہت اچھا تھا- مجھے ایسا محسوس نہیں ہوا کہ میں ایک کلاس روم میں ہوں۔

مجھے ایسا لگا جیسے مجھے لیس کیا جا رہا ہے، جیسے میں کچھ جانے بغیر کام کی دنیا میں قدم نہیں رکھوں گی کیونکہ میں سن رکھا تھا کہ میں جو سیکھ رہی ہوں وہ صنعت میں بھی لاگو ہوتا ہے۔

دراصل میں نیپال سے تعلق رکھنے والی برشا اپنے خاندان کی پہلی خاتون انجینئر ہیں۔ یہ ایک کامیابی ہے جسکا کریڈٹ  وہ اپنے والدین کو دیتی ہیں، جنہوں نے اسے معیاری تعلیم تک رسائی دینے کے لئے ہر ممکن کوشش کی۔

اس کے ساتھ جو استحقاق آتا ہے اسے وہ سرسری طور پرنہیں لیتی ہیں۔ آل اباؤٹ ڈیٹا سیریز کے ساتھ طالبات کو آؤٹ ریچ اور مینٹورشپ پروگراموں کے ذریعے بارشا دیگر خواتین کو ٹیک ڈگریوں اور کیریئر کے امکانات تلاش کرنے میں مدد دینے کے لئے پرعزم ہیں۔

ان پروگراموں میں لوسی مینٹورنگ پروگرام بھی شامل ہے جو ایس ٹی ای ایم ڈگریاں حاصل کرنے والی طالبات کو صنعت کے سرپرست اور سڈنی ویمن ان انجینئرنگ اینڈ انفارمیشن ٹیکنالوجی اسپیکرز پروگرام، دونوں یو ٹی ایس سے جوڑتا ہے۔

برشا کے لئے یہ اس ڈگری اور پیشے کو واپس دینے کا ایک طریقہ ہے جس نے اس کی زندگی کو علمی و بہترین انداز میں تشکیل دیا ہے۔

بارشا کا کہنا ہے کہ خواتین اکثر مواقع سے ناواقف ہوتی ہیں اور اگر وہ ہیں تو بہت سے رول ماڈلز کی طرف دیکھنے کے لئے نہیں ہیں۔  میں دوسرے لوگوں خصوصا نوجوان خواتین کو یہ بتانے کی بہت شوقین ہوں کہ انجینئرنگ کی فیلڈ میں بہت کچھ ہے جو ان کے لیے ممکن ہے۔

میں سمجھتی ہوں کہ یہ ان چیزوں میں سے ایک ہے جو نوجوانوں کو معلوم ہونا چاہئے کہ کچھ بھی ممکن ہے، یہ مکمل طور پر آپ پر منحصر ہے کہ آپ اپنا کیریئر کیسے تخلیق کرتے ہیں۔

07 ستمبر کو براہ راست ورچوئل گفتگو میں شامل ہوں، “ایس ٹی ای ایم میں مشق پر مبنی تعلیم کیا ہے؟”سائنس، انجینئرنگ اور انفارمیشن ٹیکنالوجی کی یو ٹی ایس فیکلٹیز کی میزبانی میں یہ سیشن اس بات کا جائزہ لے گا کہ کس طرح صنعت کی مشغولیت یو ٹی ایس میں ایس ٹی ای ایم طلبا کے تجربے کے لیئے کلیدی ہے۔ یہ ایونٹ یو ٹی ایس کے ورچوئل اوپن ویک 10۔07 ستمبر کا حصہ ہے، مزید جاننے کےلئے وزٹ کریں ۔

یونیورسٹی آف ٹیکنالوجی سڈنی (یو ٹی ایس) جو وسطی سڈنی میں واقع ہے، آسٹریلیا کی ٹیکنالوجی کی معروف یونیورسٹیوں میں سے ایک ہے۔ یہ اپنی تدریس اور تحقیق میں اختراع، تخلیقی صلاحیتوں اور ٹیکنالوجی کو فیوز اور صنعت پر مرکوز یونیورسٹی ہونے کے لئے جانا جاتا ہے۔ یو ٹی ایس میں مجموعی طور پر 40,000 سے زائد طلبا کا اندراج ہے اور کیو ایس رینکنگ میں آسٹریلیا میں اسے نمبر 1 ‘ینگ’ یونیورسٹی کا درجہ دیا گیا ہے۔ مزید معلومات کےلیئے وزٹ کریں۔

Barsha Karki wants to talk to you about data beyond Australian university degree

SYDNEY, Aug. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Back when international student Barsha Karki started her Engineering degree at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), she never imagined that one day she’d be the face of a video series showcasing specialists in tech. Hear more student and alumni successes at the UTS Virtual Open Week this 7-10 September.

Today, the 2008 graduate of the UTS Master of Engineering Studies, Master of Engineering Management works as a pre-sales engineer for NetApp, a data management company based in Sydney. When she’s not designing data management solutions, she hosts the All About Data video series, engaging other IT professionals and females in the industry for conversations about … well, data.

“When the idea was first in development, I said, ‘If you do anything, can I hijack one session for women in IT? Because I’m really passionate about it,” she says.

“I wanted to have that conversation where women are invited and we’re not necessarily talking about being women in IT but were showing how women are doing great things.”

Barsha’s own journey as a woman in tech started at UTS, which is known for creating opportunities for women to thrive in traditionally male-dominated degrees. She chose the course because it offered an opportunity to build both her technical engineering skills and her potential as a manager and leader.

“It was quite the sweet spot, to look at people but then have the option of engineering studies as well,” she says.

Beyond the hands-on learning approach that characterised her degree, Barsha says that students also had access to a wide range of industry-focused opportunities to prepare them for their future careers.

“I remember we had industry speakers that came in and spoke to us about 3G, 4G, people from Optus, people from other organisations. It was great – I didn’t feel like I was just in a classroom,” she says.

“I felt like I was being equipped, like I wasn’t going to step into the working world without knowing anything because I could hear what I was learning was also applicable to industry.”

Originally from Nepal, Barsha is the first female engineer in her family. It’s an achievement she credits to her parents, who did everything they could to give her access to a quality education.

The privilege that comes with that is something she doesn’t take lightly. Through the All About Data series, as well as outreach and mentorship programs that target female students, Barsha is committed to helping other women explore the possibilities of tech degrees and careers.

These programs include the Lucy Mentoring Program, which connects female students studying STEM degrees with an industry mentor; and the Sydney Women in Engineering and Information Technology Speakers Program, both at UTS.

For Barsha, it’s a way of giving back to the degree and the profession that have shaped her life in a profound way.

“Women often aren’t aware of the opportunities, and if they are, there aren’t many role models to look up to. I’m very passionate about letting other people, especially young women, know that there’s so much in engineering that’s possible for them,” Barsha says.

“I think that’s one of the things I want young people to know – that anything is possible, that it’s entirely up to you how you create your career.”

On 7 September, join the live virtual discussion, “What is practice-based learning in STEM?”. Hosted by the UTS Faculties of Science, Engineering and Information Technology, this session will explore how industry engagement is key to the STEM student experience at UTS. This event is part of UTS’s Virtual Open Week, 7 – 10 September. Discover more at

The University of Technology Sydney (UTS), located in central Sydney, is one of Australia’s leading universities of technology. It is known for fusing innovation, creativity and technology in its teaching and research and for being an industry-focused university. UTS has a total enrolment of more than 40,000 students and is rated No.1 ‘young’ university in Australia in the QS rankings. For more information go to
