Abu Dhabi-based Alhosn University unleashed the talents of ‘Engineers of the Future’ at the 'Civil Engineering Capstone Week' held recently in the university.
A total of 14 capstone projects prepared by 30 graduating civil engineering students were presented at the event held at the university's civil engineering laboratory.
The key projects showcased included concepts for transport engineering planning using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), eco-friendly villas, and advanced drainage and highway designs.
The event was a platform for students to merge their theoretical and practical knowledge, with participants presenting full technical details of their projects such as design aspects, structural analysis, and modeling, said a statement from AlHosn University.
Commenting on the event, Prof Abdul Rahim Sabouni, vice chancellor and the CEO of AlHosn University, said: "It reaffirms our promise of grooming the ‘Engineers of the Future.’ Some of the best student-made engineering projects in the country were on display, and we are very proud of the hard work of our wards and their mentors."
A pioneering engineering education in the UAE capital, AlHosn University opened its doors to students of all nationalities in 2005.
It is also the first private university in the country to establish an ‘Association of Women in Engineering.’ Civil engineering is the university's largest engineering department, overseeing over 160 students, approximately half of which are Emiratis.-TradeArabia News Service
