He underscored the special relationship between academia and industry, especially in the engineering field. Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Dr. Afif Hasan, noted that this workshop aligned with the concerted efforts of the Faculty of
Engineering to strengthen its relationship with the labor market.


During the first part of

on required qualifications
and skills students need to
complete their graduation

The workshop ended with a discussion of the
