The year 2018 marks 100 years since the birth of the UAE’s founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan, may God protect his soul. This year HCT 2.0 unveils its Productization, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation roadmap (P.I.E.). Last year witnessed tremendous efforts by all faculty and staff to enhance graduates’ employability, employers’ satisfaction, accreditation submissions of all HCT 2.0 programs, faculty ranking, and to establish applied research and strategic partnerships, among many achievements. This spring semester, the HCT Biannual Academic Forum will kick off under the P.I.E. theme. Productization activities related to HCT’s core businesses is what we all, faculty and staff, will embark on as of today. I look forward to welcoming you all to HCT’s Biannual Academic Forum and to sharing thoughts and ideas about our strategies for the Year of Zayed.
