Malegaon: Defeating 94 students from the leading Maharashtra Universities, a girl student of a college in Malegaon, won the top prize for Pune University in an Inter University science competition held in January this year.


Syed Tehreem Ahmed Ali of JAT Arts, Science & Commerce College, Malegaon created history when she bagged the first prize in an Inter University competition on scientific research held at Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS), Nashik on January 21 to 23, 2011.


Syed Tehreem, a third year student of B. Sc. (Zoology) at  JAT Arts, Science & Commerce College, Malegaon, was representing the Pune University at AVISHKAR - the annual Inter University competition on scientific research. AVISHKAR was introduced by the government of Maharashtra five years back to highlight the importance of scientific research among the science students at graduate level.


Syed Tehreem's project was based on biotechnological implementation of an aerobic bacterium Zoogloea ramigera in Sewage water treatment. Zoogloea causes reduction in BOD level of sewage water by promoting formation of sludge deposits and bioasortion of metals during sewage treatment.


Syed Tehreem had to compete 30 students from 19 universities including Mumbai University in the final round before she secured the top position leaving the second position to the student of Amravati University.


"I was confident of my project since beginning. If I was nervous, it was because, hailing from a backward area that too from Malegaon was an additional burden....I, however, did not let loose my nerve and finally reached to the top position",  a beaming Tehreem told


Earlier, Syed Tehreem in the zonal round defeated 34 students and as many students in the Intra University round before she was finally selected as the top contender to represent the Pune University at the final round.


JAT Arts, Science & Commerce College, Malegaon is the leading educational institution of India that hosts over 9000 girl-students in its campus. In January 2010, Sumayya Moin Ansari, one of its another student had reached Intra-University level in the same competition.
