The AUS College of Engineering (CEN) and Schneider Electric have signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA), as part of the American University of Sharjah’s (AUS) Engineering Al Nukhba Program.
As part of the agreement, Schneider Electric will help build the capacity of CEN students by providing training and internship opportunities, jointly supervising student capstone and research projects, and hosting student field visits to Schneider Electric’s exhibitions and research centers.
The agreement will also allow for an exchange of knowledge and expertise between CEN’s world-class faculty and Schneider Electric by giving access to AUS students and faculty to Schneider Electric’s Energy University and Schneider Electric Academy Resources.
According to the statement, “This collaboration comes as part of the AUS Engineering Al Nukhba Program, which connects CEN with industry partners as part of the college’s strategic goals to increase community engagement, develop a student-focused approach to support their training and education, and enhance research and innovation in key areas that are globally important and align with the UAE’s innovative agenda.”
The AUS Engineering Al Nukhba Program forms part of the college’s commitment to helping its students make the most of their internship opportunities, equipping them with the requisite knowledge and skills and connecting them to dynamic corporate and industrial entities that match their major.
Dr. Fadi Aloul, Dean of CEN at AUS, said that, At CEN, we are always keen to provide our students with technical and transferable skill sets and competencies that make them stand out in their specialty. This will help them excel as experts, entrepreneurs, and academics. Schneider Electric is a global industry leader.
