To promote a strong cultural and educational exchange program between the UAE and Armenia, the UAE Embassy in Yerevan has initiated an educational trip for top Armenian students studying IT, Architecture, and Engineering to visit the UAE.
On 5 February 2020, Khalifa University welcomed 14 students from different Armenian universities at the KU Main Campus. The KU Outreach Department arranged a special full day tour, starting with a welcome note from Dr. Ahmed Al Shoaibi, Senior Vice President, Academic and Student Services. A presentation about Khalifa University’s academic programs, research centers, and KU initiatives and achievements was also shown to the guests.
The Armenian students also visited KU’s Aerospace Research and Innovation Center (ARIC), Healthcare Engineering Innovation Center (HEIC), and Emirates ICT Innovation Center (EBTIC). The directors of the centers, Dr. Wesley Cantwell, Dr. Cesare Stefanini, and Dr. Nawaf Al Moosa, met and discussed with the students about the goals, initiatives, and projects of each of the centers.
At the end of the tour, the students also visited the Admissions and Scholarship Office to know more about the admissions procedures, scholarships, and student services offered at KU.
