Pakistani student nominated for International Lexus Award

The National University of Sciences & Technology (NUST) alumna Aqsa Ajmal has become first Pakistani among global finalists for Lexus Design Award 2020 for her phenomenal project called ‘Pursewit’.

Aqsa’s final-year project ‘Pursewit’ is a sewing machine exclusively designed for low visioned people with low-income backgrounds.

The machine is ergonomically designed and being developed with special embedded features to enable differently abled individuals to operate it without any hassle, and, in so doing, earn a livelihood for themselves and their families.

Aqsa is currently working on her prototype under the supervision of co-inventor Mr Jawwad Zaidi, HoD Industrial Design at NUST SADA

Prior that Aqsa was attending a 3-day exclusive mentor-ship workshop in New York, USA, in the last week of January 2020.
