The event saw the presence of 30 companies from different industrial sectors such as energy, telecommunications, construction, chemical, and more. The participating companies opened their doors and welcomed UDST’s engineering technology students to experience the incredible job and career opportunities that are available. The young talents were able to apply the technical skills and knowledge they acquired from their studies in internships and work terms and some were able to land jobs even before graduation.
Commenting on the event Dr. Salem Al-Naemi, President of UDST said: “As an applied university, UDST has always taken into consideration the industry’s feedback and needs before devising any program through advisory committees that represented different industrial sectors. The academia-industry collaboration is of top importance to UDST and is one of the main drivers of research and high-quality teaching. Today we wish to recognize all the efforts that have been deployed by our partners and thank them for the continuous support they show to our students and faculty. It is through such collaborations that we develop a generation of thinkers and innovators that will lead Qatar’s development and achieve its unique vision.”
