Aurak in training tie-up with Al Nuaimi

RAS AL-KHAIMAH, March 4, 2018

The American University of Ras Al Khaimah (Aurak) has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Al Nuaimi Group to augment research, help students prepare for competition, and improve job opportunities for students.

Al Nuaimi Group is a Ras Al Khaimah local contractor and construction management company specializing in road and infrastructure development, supplying mixed concrete, architectural glass, and metal fabrication.

The institutions have agreed to share research, invite each other to conferences of related topics, and work together to organize workshops and conferences concerning, but not limiting to, building construction and civil works.

Al Nuaimi will also assist Aurak students with expertise, tools, and assembly of a Zero Energy Building to enter into the 2018 Solar Decathlon Middle East that is set to take place in November in Dubai.  The decathlon is an international competition created by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) and the Department of Energy of the US; competitors design solar houses and adapt their designs to heat, dust, and high humidity.

The competition is based on architecture, engineering and construction, energy management, energy efficiency, comfort conditions, house functioning, sustainable transportation, sustainability, communication, and innovation.

Al Nuaimi has agreed to provide Aurak students with internship opportunities, and the respective institutions plan on meeting three times a year to discuss expansion of this memorandum to benefit both establishments in the future.

Prof Hassan of Aurak said: “The more real world, practical educational support we can provide our students, the better off Ras Al Khaimah will be. It is always wonderful to teach students ecological responsibility and to do collaborative research that will help conserve the environment.” – TradeArabia News Service
