As part of its mission to nurture technically grounded leaders and innovators through teaching and research, the College of Science and Engineering (CSE) at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) has launched a series of workshops for high school seniors with an interest in computer engineering.
The ‘Innovate.Create’ series provides opportunities for participants to work in group settings to better understand how computer engineering affects their lives.
They also get to engage in practical engineering projects and application developments covering cybersecurity and robotics.
The workshop on January 25 explored the origins of computer security and how cybersecurity works.
A session on programming as well as mobile application design and development will be held on February 22.
The workshops are open to students in their final two years of high school and with a good academic record.
Following the first workshop, Dr Mounir Hamdi, dean of CSE, said: “CSE’s determination to become a world-class multidisciplinary college effectively starts at home. Put simply, we need to attract local students with a passion and flair for computer engineering. Our ‘Innovate.Create’ series of workshops are designed specifically to pique high school seniors’ interest in this constantly evolving field of research. We’re also determined to show them what makes HBKU such an exciting and innovative place to study.”
CSE regularly holds events that reflect its research activities and interests.
The second session will be held at the Information and Computing Technology (ICT) Division, Penrose House (LAS building), Education City.
