Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the Ajman Municipality and Planning Department and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the City University College of Ajman, and Joseph McHugh, Minister of Education of Ireland, who is currently visiting the UAE, discussed the means of strengthening bilateral cooperation between universities in Ajman and Ireland.
During the meeting, which was attended by Aidan Cronin, Ambassador of Ireland to the UAE, both sides discussed several issues related to education and ways of developing their education systems to achieve the common interests of Emirati universities, particularly those in Ajman, and Irish universities.
Both sides also highlighted the need to keeping pace with the latest developments, especially in the areas of technology, telecommunications and scientific research.
Sheikh Rashid briefed McHugh about the goals and programmes of the City University College of Ajman, while affirming that the UAE, most notably, the Emirate of Ajman, is an attractive destination for students as the Emirate’s leadership believes that training people and arming them with science and knowledge is the best way to achieve prosperity.
“The college has achieved many successes and aspires to be the best by adopting modern technologies, including Artificial Intelligence. The college also aims to identify the needs of the job market and the specialisations required by the government and private institutions,” he added.
The meeting was attended by Abdulaziz Al Jassmi, Member of the Board of Trustees and Representative of the Board of Directors of the College, and several members of the college’s board, along with Imran Khan, President of the College.
