Dr. Hamad Odhabi, Director of Abu Dhabi University’s Al Ain campus, commented, “Hosting these workshops during the Holy Month of Ramadan is part of ADU’s contribution to the people in our community. By providing them with expertise in specialized fields, we are helping to develop their personal and professional skills. This initiative complements ADU’s other activities launched during the current academic year. These include workshops for school students, led by our faculty and students, and scientific competitions enabling students to improve their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).”
Dr. Odhabi explained that the University is also launching a series of workshops to help students obtain the required certificates for enrolling in ADU focusing on English, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and ensuring a smooth transition to university life. Courses to support parents with the management of the family budget and improvement of their English language are also in the pipeline.
In celebration of the upcoming opening of the new Al Ain campus, ADU will be launching a set of scientific courses for the community in cooperation with a group of global institutions including Microsoft, Cisco, IBM, Huawei, and other key players in the field of AI data analysis, programming, and blockchain.
The University is also organizing visits for school students and allocating a specific space on campus for both parents and students to attend seminars on the latest developments and technology. ADU also hosts career workshops to connect students with potential employers.
