ALHOSN University presented its unique brand of ‘global knowledge with local vision’ to students, parents and educators in Al Ain during the 2011 Al Ain Education & Career Fair which took place from May 2 to 4, 2011 at the Al Khabisi Celebration Hall in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi.
The university outlined the career prospects related to its 11 undergraduate and 7 graduate programs under the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Faculty of Business, and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Representatives explained that all programs were developed in collaboration with North American academic experts and are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
Also discussed were ALHOSN’s various social advocacies, such as its various environmental protection initiatives, its campaign to attract more women to technical and scientific courses, and its encouragement of multicultural harmony via community-outreach initiatives such as the American Corner and the International Day festivities. The university stressed that its programs are open to students of all nationalities.
“Al Ain is of prime historical significance for the Emirates because it is the birthplace of the founding father of our country, the late H.H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. It is also home to the country’s highest number of UAE Nationals. Education is thus a priority component of its development plans and ALHOSN is committed to helping Al Ain’s students receive world-class education while staying true to their cultural values,” said Prof. Abdul Rahim Sabouni, Vice Chancellor and CEO, ALHOSN University..
The Al Ain Education & Career Fair has been attracting over 5,000 visitors every year since it was first inaugurated in 2009. Established in support of the UAE’s Emiratization program, the fair is regarded as one of the leading events in the culturally-rich city of Al Ain. During the three-day career and employment event, ALHOSN University joined an elite group of educational and private sector organizations, which included the ADNOC Group of Companies, Ernst & Young and the Abu Dhabi Airports Company.
