Alhosn enlists educators from 36 countries
Abu Dhabi, September 3, 2012
Abu Dhabi-based Alhosn University, a leading private university, has assembled a lineup of educators from 36 countries to deliver world-class education during 2012 Fall semester.
To meet the specific needs of its students, of who 60 per cent are Emiratis, Alhosn has developed 19 undergraduate and graduate programmes in engineering, business, and education, the university said in a statement.
All these programmes have received accreditation from the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in the UAE, and several have also been granted accreditation from prestigious professional international accreditation boards.
Alhosn will be accepting applicants for the upcoming 2012 Fall Semester during its 'Registration Weeks’ from September 2 to 23.
To spice up the registration period, the university will offer scholarships, raffle off free Admission fees, and launch campaigns on Facebook and other key social networks.
Alhosn will also continue its advocacy of encouraging more women to participate in technical fields such as Mechanical, Industrial and Civil Engineering by offering special scholarships.
There are currently about 200 new incoming students already registered, with more expected to follow in the coming two weeks. Classes are scheduled to begin on September 9.
“If we want to help our students make a difference in the world, then we must bring global experiences and expertise to them,” said Prof Abdul Rahim Sabouni, Alhosn’s vice chancellor and CEO.
“Alhosn invests heavily to ensure that its academic personnel are up to the challenge of molding productive citizens and future leaders who have a global view of things while they seek the betterment of their community.
“For this coming Fall semester we have assembled a dedicated and highly competent team of educators of almost 40 nationalities who will ensure that we live up to our commitments to our students and their parents and guardians.”
“We also want to maintain an equal-opportunity environment and fill the gender gap in some professions in the UAE and the region, by encouraging our female students to pursue engineering degrees such as Civil Engineering, and Industrial Engineering,” Prof Sabouni added.
Alhosn University has been experiencing a remarkable period of growth which has seen its student body grow to more than 1,600 at the start of Fall Semester, while this year’s graduating class is expected to top last year’s class of 250 graduates. – TradeArabia News Service
