CAS signs pacts with Total Qatar, SCH.

MOHAMED KHOULAIDI DOHA QATAR University's College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) has signed two memorandums of understanding (MOUs) with Total Research Centre Qatar (TRCQ), a research division of TOTAL EP Qatar and the Supreme Council of Health (SCH) in the field of academic cooperation and development of the students.

Both MoUs, which directly benefit students from the college's Department of Biological and Environm-ental Sciences and the Human Nutrition Progra-mme, aim at strengthening the links between corporate and governmental organisations, as well as the academic community.

The agreements cover the provision of student internship programmes, participation in job fairs, seminars, conferences, workshops and identification and implementation of mutual environmental research interest for Masters and PhD students' research.

Speaking about the agreements, CAS Dean Dr Eiman Mustafawi said, "With our agreements with SCH and TOTAL, clinical training and supervised practical experience will be provided to our Human Nutrition Programme students and Biological and Environmental Sciences students during the course of their studies." She said that the MoUs cater to the college's objectives as they give students the opportunity to undergo training from entities that had been given the responsibility by the Emir His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khailfa al Thani to guide reforms in the country in order to establish one of the world's most admired and renowned health and industrial systems.

"This is the beginning of long- term partnerships that can expand into more than one component so we can collectively work together to enhance these specialisations on a national and regional basis," she added.
