Electrical Maintenance Engineer at ADNOC Offshore

  • Why is a KU Alumni Association important?

The KU Alumni Association plays a valuable role in keeping the stories, memories, and reputation of Khalifa University alive. Alumni are proof of KU’s impact and role in building future generations.

  • What motivated you to run for a position in the alumni association?

Being a KU graduate, I wanted to give back to the place that helped shape my career path. It was an environment I truly missed, and the Alumni Association was an opportunity to stay connected and do just that.

  • What specific goals or initiatives do you hope to accomplish during your tenure?

I would like to play a part in the following areas:

  • Connect current/prospective students with KU alumni through conducting experience and knowledge sharing sessions.
  • Provide professional development opportunities for KU alumni struggling on the job hunt.
  • Facilitate lifelong learning. Alumni in various industries may reach out to current Senior KU students and provide ideas for real-life industry struggles to be tackled as a Senior Design Project.
  • How do you plan to foster stronger connections between alumni and current students?
  • Allowing alumni to become a resource for current students; through mentoring students in their areas of expertise.
  • Engaging alumni in KU celebrations.
  • What experiences or skills do you bring to the alumni association that you believe will be valuable in your role?

During my years as an undergraduate at KU, I was involved in the Student Exchange Program, which helped me develop my intercultural skills. I was also a part of the Stanford University Innovation Fellows, a program designed to introduce new, innovative, and creative ways to enhance student life. Another achievement worth mentioning is my Gold Medal in Public Speaking for the Emirates Skills National Competition, a step I was encouraged to take by one of my Public Speaking professors at KU.

Upon graduation and after my internships, I joined ADNOC Offshore and have undergone many experiences in my area of work, which developed my expertise further.

  • How do you envision the alumni association contributing to the overall growth and development of the university?

I have faith in the Alumni Association and its contribution to the development of KU.

The Association can help KU through its involvement at the university and support of current students as they start their careers.

The Alumni Association’s loyalty to KU provides great support in branding Khalifa University as the internationally top-ranked research-intensive university that it is.
