Students of Masters of Business Administration at the Abu Dhabi School of Management have recently displayed a range of their innovative projects, ranging from smart phone apps designed help raise funds for charity purposes to 3-D printers used in manufacturing high-fashion clothing.
The students have developed 25 innovative projects in line with the UAE’s strategy to encourage a culture of innovation among the country’s youth.
Speaking to Emirates News Agency, WAM, about the projects, during participation in a forum about graduation projects organised by the Abu Dhabi School of Management, student Mohammed Salem Al Ketbi said that his project is primarily concerned with sustainability and preservation of the environment, saying that he designed an app to determine the exact locations of waste bins in various areas.
Students Abdulla Saif, Mohammed Al Mazki and Ahmed Obaid Yamahi have made a smartphone application to spread knowledge via social media, saying that the application also supports e-learning, as it provides electronic lecture services.
Fatima Al Badi, Nahla Al Mansouri, Moza Al Harami, and Ghaneya Mazroui created a smartphone application that provides an intelligent channel to receive donations from philanthropists, and Yousef Al Muhairi, Mohammed Al Shamsi, Khalifa Al Dhaheri, Nejma Al Kaabi and Shamsa Al Marzouqi devised a 3-D fashion printing machine.
Dr. Mubarak Hamad Al Ameri, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Abu Dhabi School of Management, praised the creative efforts of the students. He said that their projects embody the academic community’s awareness about students.
Professor Abdullah Abonamah, President of the Abu Dhabi School of Management, said the MBA programme offered in partnership with Imperial College London, focuses on the consolidation of creative concepts and entrepreneurship, as well as practical application of skills, as part of the overall college strategy to match their programmes to the needs of society and the labour market.
