by Dubaiforum

SHARJAH, 8th February, 2023 (WAM) — The College of Engineering (CEN) at the American University of Sharjah (AUS) has launched the AUS Engineering Al Nukhba programme (elite in English) designed to strengthen the college’s industrial outreach and enrich the learning experience of students.

Through the programme, CEN will establish a framework of cooperation through Memoranda of Agreements (MoAs). These will focus on areas of mutual interest such as research, development, training programmes, internships, exchange of information and personnel, joint supervision of students’ capstone projects and field trip visits.

This mutually beneficial programme will enable students to gain valuable experience, while industry partners will benefit from the skills of dedicated and talented AUS students.

As part of their graduation requirements, CEN students must complete an internship lasting a minimum of 16 weeks. The Al Nukhba programme is part of the college’s commitment to helping its students make the most of their internship opportunities, equipping them with the requisite knowledge and skills and connecting them to corporate and industrial entities that match their majors.

“Through this programme, CEN students will have the opportunity to gain valuable industry knowledge, allowing them to best prepare themselves for future careers. Companies will also get to work with the best engineering students,” said Dr. Fadi Aloul, Dean of CEN.

He added, “With our student-focused approach, we are confident that this new initiative will provide students with the best possible hands-on industrial experience and enhance their career opportunities. We welcome industry partners to join us in the AUS Engineering Al Nukhba programme. We look forward to the successes and possibilities that this programme will unlock for our future leaders.”

As one of the Middle East’s top-ranked engineering colleges, CEN empowers the next generation of innovators, problem solvers, independent thinkers, global citizens, entrepreneurs and leaders that will impact the future of the world.
