Abu Dhabi, March 23, 2010
Alhosn University, a leading Abu Dhabi-based university dedicated to value-based education, is hosting an international faculty fellowship of a leading US university.
Prof Basem Alzahabi, professor of mechanical engineering, and Prof David Strubler, associate professor of business of Kettering University’s Oswald International Faculty Fellowship are visiting Alhosn University from March 21 to 26.
They will participate in a weeklong series of lectures and discussions related to their respective academic fields.
The two professors will also meet with Alhosn administration and faculty members to discuss opportunities for collaboration and partnership between the two universities, especially in the areas of student exchange programmes, faculty member visits, and the sharing of ideas in engineering- and business-related academic programs.
Professor Strubler will take the opportunity to study Arab and Islamic cultures, their business practices, and their possible interaction with the Western business world.
Professor Alzahabi will give different seminars from an international perspective and participate in special seminars.
“The fellowship arrangement with Kettering University affirms Alhosn’s commitment to exposing our students and faculty to international expertise,” said Professor Abdul Rahim Sabouni, vice chancellor and CEO, Alhosn University.
“This initiative complements efforts to bring Muslim and Western countries closer together through peaceful dialogue and collaboration, especially in socially relevant fields such as education,” Prof Sabouni concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
