Dubai: Some 270 students were honoured yesterday at the second graduation ceremony of the Hamdan Bin Mohammad e-university held at the Cultural and Scientific Association building in Dubai.

Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, attended the ceremony yesterday and handed the graduating students their diplomas.

Sultan Bin Ayoud, one of the graduates, said he was able to balance both his daily duties and studying with the help of the e-university. With classes and books provided electronically at the tips of students’ fingers, one can get a degree while sitting on the beach, he added.

Graduating from Innovation and Change Management, Amal Al Misafiri was also able to balance her duties as a mother of three children, studying for her degree and working as the director of the training department of the Emirates Centre for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) in Abu Dhabi.

The university not only accommodates those responsible for families, but also fresh high school graduates who work alongside their studies in order to pay for their tuition fees.

Dana Esmail, a student in the university, explained that most students enrolled in the university who work to pay for their fees would have found it difficult had they been registered in any other non-virtual university. Among these fresh high school graduates currently enrolled in the e-university is Emirati student Adel Anwar, currently studying Business Quality Management in Public Relations. Anwar fondly speaks of the e-learning environment, encouraging students to consider the option when applying to university.

Why You Should Not Opt For IIT Bombay

This article is written by IITians in theblog








If asked to compare IIT Bombay to IIT Delhi, most students say that the difference is negligible. Both are in metropolitan cities with good options for hostels, PG accommodations, food and entertainment. Cultural activities are equally good as is the faculty and study methodology. Even placements at the two IITS are amongst the best in the country. Yet figures indicate that the top JEE rank holders prefer Computer Science Engineering at IIT Mumbai rather than IIT Delhi. But, we are here to tell you when and why you can avoid IIT Mumbai.

Mumbai IIT was earlier placed in the suburbs, away from the crowds, giving IITians the space and peace to pursue their career goals. Today the area in Powai is surrounded by high rise building, malls and traffic snarls, bringing with it all the clatter and patter of a metropolitan hub.
