Qatar's Education City Convocation tomorrow
Doha, May 4, 2009
The second Education City Senior Convocation will take place tomorrow (May 5), in a ceremony that signals Qatar’s emergence as a hub for world-class education.
'The Education City project has brought first-class teaching to Qatar, making it possible for young generations to reach their full potential,' said Dr Fathy Saoud, president of Qatar Foundation.
'We are proud to have campuses of six leading teaching and research universities at Education City.'
“Qatar Foundation is helping to develop a knowledge-driven society through education,” added Dr Abdullah Bin Ali Al-Thani, vice president-Education for Qatar Foundation.
While the Georgetown School of Foreign Service in Qatar (SFS-Qatar) and Faculty of Islamic Studies (FIS) will graduate their first students this year, the joint convocation will celebrate the second graduating classes from the Education City university campuses of Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC-Q), Texas A&M University (TAMUQ) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU-Q), as well as the eighth graduating class from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCUQ).
Since the 2008 inaugural convocation, Northwestern University (NU-Q) has joined Education City and will graduate its first class of students in 2012.
Almost 200 students will graduate from the Education City universities this year.-TradeArabia News Service
