Sharjah24: As part of its Elite Programme, the American University of Sharjah (AUS) has announced a new collaboration with Nokia, a prominent telecoms and technology firm. The goal of this program is to connect professors and students with prominent business sector members so that they can gain hands-on experience and participate in research that addresses pressing issues in the real world.
AUS and a number of other companies can collaborate on R&D, training, information sharing, and student project monitoring through the Elite Programme. In order to succeed in the job market, students gain practical experience and significant internal training through this partnership.

Dr Fadi Aloul, the Dean of the Engineering Faculty at AUS, discussed the MoU and the prospects it would provide for students and faculty members. He underlined the university's commitment to fostering creativity and critical thinking in the next generation through its outstanding academic programmes and extracurricular activities.

"Although we pride ourselves on our exceptional faculty and cutting-edge facilities, we recognise the importance of collaborating with other organisations to ensure that our students have an unforgettable, hands-on learning experience," Dr. Aloul stated.

This collaboration with Nokia, a world leader in technology, reflects the objectives of the Elite Programme. Students will improve their hard and soft skills by gaining exposure to state-of-the-art technology, industry standards, and expert knowledge.

Participation in internships and job placements, as well as an interactive classroom that changes with the times, are common outcomes of such partnerships with companies. In the end, it's a win-win for the institution and the companies involved.

Through the Elite Programme, companies are able to work together with AUS in a strategic way, which benefits students through supervised research projects that address real-world issues and employers through the possibility of hiring top graduates.

Building a strong academic-industry environment, training students for successful careers, and solving important global concerns are all goals of this partnership between AUS and Nokia.
