Quotes

"We are thrilled with our student’s performance at this conference," said Dr. Arif Sultan Al Hammadi, Khalifa University’s Executive Vice President. "The term "hacking" certainly has negative connotations, but in today’s world, hacking is a necessity for exposing loopholes and flaws in secure systems, so it’s wonderful to see our students excelling in this very valuable, and exciting, area. Khalifa University strives to ensure that our students are experienced and educated in the most cutting edge techniques and methods so that they can contribute effectively to the future of the U A E and its industry."
Ali AlNuaimi, one of the graduate students said: "I am proud to be part of the Energy Pioneers. I speak on behalf of all the graduates when I say that we will work hard for continuous development and continue to strive for excellence, setting an example to future generations of pioneers of peaceful nuclear energy."
Dr. Al Meheiri added, "Developing programmes and diplomas mapped to the outcomes and levels of the National Qualifications Framework will place the U A E in the league of countries whose teachers meet international educational standards, and so become an exporter rather than an importer of qualified teaching workforce."
"Now you hear about robots helping doctors and I think that they will be used a lot more of the future."
