Mohamed al-Housaini, a student enroled in the PhD in Sustainable Energy programme at the College of Science and Engineering (CSE), part of Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU), has earned a gold medal at the 47th International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva. 
Al-Housaini was part of a delegation of representatives from Qatar and the region who engaged with more than 800 exhibitors from across 45 countries. 
The annual convention brings industrial and commercial entities, higher education institutions, and private and state sectors to demonstrate the latest in the fields of technological invention and market commercialisation. 
Al-Housani completed his MS at HBKU with a thesis on drone-based cleaning technology and strategies for solar PV farms in desert climates, including that of Qatar. 
His PhD dissertation research at HBKU aims to address entrepreneurial ecosystem capacity development and put forth potential solutions for economic diversification and sustainable development. 
CSE offers 12 graduate degrees at the master’s and PhD levels, each catering to a sub-set of critical challenges facing the region and beyond. Its Sustainable Development Division places special emphasis on energy and the environment – areas deemed as instrumental for the continuity of generations to come.
