This has been a momentous year for us — we graduated our 1,000th engineer in May and just a few weeks ago, our research program reached new heights with 14 new awards from the Qatar National Research Fund.” He continued, “We have come so far since we started in the fall of 2003 with just 29 students and I am proud of the work we do every day as engineering leaders, not just in Qatar but in the Gulf region as well.”
