Qatar University College of Engineering (QU-CENG) signed an agreement with the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) to establish collaboration in the field of education, research, consultancy, and knowledge exchange.
Both sides affirmed that the agreement comes within the framework of developing and enhancing their co-operation in order to benefit from the common potentials in the fields of research, consulting and community service, and to promote the sustainable economic and social development of the country.
QU president Dr Hassan al-Derham said that the agreement is the continuation of a series of agreements with SC in order to provide the university with research and advisory services.
Al-Derham pointed out that both parties will co-operate to implement a set of projects that contribute to solving some of the problems that may be faced by the security committee and other SC committees, and enhance opportunities for co-operation between QU and SC to serve the World Cup 2022.
Al-Derham added that the agreement reiterates QU’s continuous efforts to find solutions to the challenges facing the country’s sectors and to expand co-operation between the two parties to serve local institutions in line with national priorities towards a knowledge-based economy.
The QU president stressed that the 2022 World Cup is an honour for Qatar and all Arabs, and expressed happiness that the university is part of it.
For his part, SC Secretary-General Hassan al-Thawadi said the agreement “refers to the commitment of SC to co-operate with QU in different research and consultancy areas including the security issues of 2022 towards the success of 2022 plans.”
“QU’s role in launching the Khalifa Stadium was remarkable, and I am sure that today’s agreement will open new aspects of collaboration with QU. Such agreement represents a noticeable example of collaboration that can be invested in the post-tournament phase,” al-Thawadi added.
Commenting on the signing of the agreement, QU-CENG dean Dr Khalifa al-Khalifa said that there are different areas of cooperation with SC through the agreement, including studies and quality and consultancy services.
Al-Khalifa added that the fields of co-operation include several projects such as face recognition in a challenging environment (the 2022 World Cup in Qatar) and a platform for identifying and controlling unauthorised drone pilots, real time intelligent scene analysis and crowd traffic monitoring system, mobile photovoltaic module with solid-state batteries, and crowd control during emergency evacuations.
