UAE university and systems integrator collaborate for IoT education

An educational institution and a technology company in the UAE have announced a collaboration to drive IoT advances.

The American University of Sharjah (AUS), a leading university in the Gulf, and Waseela, a master systems integrator specialising in large-scale information and communications technology projects across the Middle East, say they have united their expertise to advance engineering education and innovation in the field of the Internet of Things (IoT) in a recent on-campus memorandum of agreement ceremony.

The collaboration, which operates within the framework of the AUS Engineering Al Nukhba (Elite) Programme, will see Waseela supporting the training of AUS students through internships, providing hands-on experience to complement academic learning and meet graduation requirements.

Both parties will collaborate to jointly supervise selected capstone and research projects, facilitating industry-relevant research and fostering innovation. AUS and Waseela say they will collaborate on joint research and development projects, driving innovation and pushing the boundaries of technological advancement.

Established in 2007, Waseela has fully operational branches in Jordan, UAE, KSA, and Qatar, in addition to projects and accounts relationships in Oman, Iraq, Egypt and Libya

Dr Fadi Aloul, Dean of the College of Engineering at AUS, says: "As we embrace the era of interconnected devices and smart technologies, our collaboration with Waseela signifies a transformative step in our commitment to cultivating IoT expertise within our engineering students. Together, we're not only bridging the gap between academia and industry but shaping the architects of tomorrow's interconnected world."
