ALHOSN University, a leading Abu Dhabi-based university dedicated to high-quality, value-based education, is highlighting the creativity of its students, the scope of its programs and its thrust towards becoming a university of innovation during the 3rd Elite Exhibition which started yesterday (Monday, April 20, 2009) and runs until April 22, 2009 at the Al Wahda Mall in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Organized by the UAE Ministry of Education’s Department of Government Communications, the event features the creative and artistic works of selected secondary-level students across the UAE daily from 10 am to 10 pm. It complements broader federal efforts to better educate society as the Emirates moves towards a Knowledge Economy. H.E. Dr. Hanif Hassan, UAE Minister of Education, opened the exhibit yesterday afternoon.
“Creativity is essential for the Emirates to successfully establish a knowledge economy, which is why we encourage our students and our educators to use their imagination to come up with ideas and creations that could later on benefit society. We are truly overwhelmed and pleased with the wonderful student projects on display; they have encouraged us to mold our own elite group of students who will pave the way for this country’s brighter future. We would like to express our full support for government efforts in this direction,” said Prof. Abdul Rahim Sabouni, Vice Chancellor and CEO of ALHOSN University.
ALHOSN University is contributing to the establishment of a knowledge-based society by providing high-quality education based on international standards. Most of its 11 undergraduate and 7 graduate programs, which are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, have been developed by academicians from prestigious Canadian university. The university recently added four new Master and Graduate Certificate programs in Buildings Engineering and Engineering Management as part of its efforts to emphasize on engineering and technical courses.
The educational institution addresses community and social needs as well by accommodating special needs students; providing scholarships; encouraging women to join the engineering fields; and opening its programs to students of all nationalities. It has been highly visible in recent major events such as the Gulf Education and Training Exhibition in Dubai and the 7th Counseling Arabia Conference and will join Earth Day and other activities which promote educational, social and environmental development.
