Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) today announced that the College of Science and Engineering (CSE) is collaborating with IBM to train its students in new and emerging technologies through IBM Skills Academy program.

The program will provide HBKU’s CSE students with opportunities to develop future-ready skills in new and emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, data analytics and other advancements shaping the global business landscape. It will also provide a hybrid approach to learning, enabling students to participate in an innovative mix of career-driven online courses and classroom-blended training activities. These are not only expected to improve employment prospects but also encourage accelerated economic growth through entrepreneurial activities. 

Speaking about HBKU’s collaboration with IBM, Dr. Mounir Hamdi, Founding Dean, CSE, said: “We’re naturally delighted to be working with IBM and immersing our students in this innovative approach to training and development. The overarching objectives of the IBM Skills Academy echo our determination to provide individuals with the prerequisite technological and entrepreneurial skills to thrive in tomorrow’s workplace. Our collaboration with one of the world’s leading tech companies also reflects HBKU’s growing international profile and ability to build proactive relations across the public and private sector. 

“The IBM Skills Academy’s unique take on classroom and interactive learning underscores that future job opportunities are likely to favor candidates that are not only tech-savvy but also comfortable in agile environments. To this end, we’re looking forward to seeing our first cohort of students putting key lessons learned into practice.”
