College of Science and Engineering to Hold Computer Engineering Outreach Workshops for Young Adults

Interactive sessions will introduce high school students to practices, processes and real-world applications

The College of Science and Engineering (CSE) at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) is to host a series of outreach workshops for high school seniors with an interest in computer engineering.

Over three sessions, participants will learn how computer engineering affects their daily lives and engage in workshops covering practical engineering projects and applications. The series begins with a workshop on the hardware components of a robot. Participants will also learn about embedded system design and other relevant programming skills. This is followed by a session tracing the development of computer security and how cybersecurity and its related protocols function. 'Innovate.Create' concludes with a workshop outlining the foundations of programming, as well as mobile application design and development.

Speaking ahead of the first workshop Dr. Mohamed Abdallah, Assistant Professor, CSE, said: These sessions underline our commitment to serving Qatar's needs through the development of future generations of technically-minded innovators and leaders. This can only happen if we spark local interest in computer engineering and related disciplines at an early age. We're confident that our mix of expert academic knowledge and real world applications will serve this purpose. We also hope our participants have fun in the process.

The computer engineering outreach workshops will take place from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on November 30, January 25, and February 22 at the Penrose House (formerly known as the LAS Building), Education City. Students interested in participating may apply through hbku.edu.qa/en/innovate-create.

The College of Science and Engineering regularly holds events to highlight its research activities and projects. For more information, please visit cse.hbku.edu.qa.
