THE College of Engineering at Applied Science University (ASU) has invested in opportunities to help students develop innovative techniques for graduation project presentations.
The programmes offered at ASU fulfil the needs of future technological and scientific advancements related to the environment which reflect positively on the economy.
They also aim to broaden the knowledge of students and improve their analytical and innovative thinking skills.
The students are then able to apply the acquired knowledge to scientific research and their future careers as competent engineers.
The college’s acting vice dean Dr Marwan Aouad said the programmes offered in architectural and civil engineering, in collaboration with the London South Bank University, are the result of in-depth studies on the needs of the market.
He added that one of the main objectives behind offering these programmes was ASU’s willingness to diversify subject offered and create opportunities for Bahraini youth to enhance their skills and enable them to secure unique employment opportunities after graduation.
The effectiveness of these programmes have been confirmed by the Industry Advisory Board, which is involved in sharing information and giving advice about graduation project topics to ensure that they are in line with market requirements and the latest national and international standards.
The high levels of scientific and practical attainment of the students in their graduation projects reflect their innovative thinking in tackling practical requirements, said Dr Aouad.
Although the current Covid-19 pandemic poses a serious international challenge in the higher education sector, the university sees the situation as an opportunity and incentive for creativity and innovation in implementing unconventional methods of teaching, learning and assessment.
To ensure this are graduation project supervisors Dr Hamdy Al Sayed, Dr Wael Abdelhameed and Dr Rouya Hdeib, along with staff members in various departments.
The college implements the latest digital applications to facilitate communication with students and showcase their work, Dr Aouad added.
One of the initiatives in this regard is a virtual exhibition which aims to present student projects and models, which are then supervised by the academic members of staff.
This application allows students to participate in a virtual tour which resembles a real exhibition by enabling them to take a virtual walk through the projects.
