The Bard of Governors (BOG) of Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University (HBMSU) haild the launch of the school of Artificial intelligence as promoting smart learning.
During the second meeting of BOG, the board members welcomed the launch of the school of Artificial Intelligence, which was established in anticipation of the demand for the new set of skills required for the future. The school, one of the UAE’s forward-looking initiatives and strategies, will offer Master's degrees in Robotics, Data Science, and Game Design, in addition to numerous relevant programs and professional diplomas.
Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Deputy Chief of Police and Public Security in Dubai and Chairman of the HBMSU's Board of Governors (BOG), said: “The launch of the school of Artificial Intelligence gives strong impetus to develop and innovate smart learning skills that match the future needs of smart education, as well as establish a solid base for innovation. We are committed to enhancing the education system and using the best creative and smart means to support the country’s comprehensive development process. By doing so, we are building a promising future driven by an innovative educational system that meets the challenges of the modern era. Additionally, we will strengthen our cooperation with all government institutions to support their employees as part of our joint commitment to support human capital development as per the directives of our wise leadership."
Tamim lauded HBMSU for promoting smart education, innovation, and scientific research through an education system that employs the latest innovative techniques, making it a leading smart education institution in the UAE. He explained that the community and government entities’ high confidence in HBMSU is the result of its persistent efforts and continuous work. This has led to stronger relations with the university so that they, too, can benefit from its training programs in a time when smart education is seen to play a role in the global socio-economic advancement.
The meeting - held recently in Dubai- discussed three agreements inked between the university and three government bodies as well as the launch of the ‘Entrepreneur Club.’
The meeting also offered an opportunity to showcase the university’s efforts to promote smart education, digital transformation within the public sector, and innovation in the country, resulting in the government entities’ higher confidence in the university. Digital transformation, in particular, aims to enhance the government’s performance in line with its mission to adopt smart education in support of the UAE’s shift to a competitive and knowledge-based economy.
The attendees reviewed HBMSU’s agreements with three government entities. The first agreement with Umm al-Quwain Executive Council aims to support the employees of the Umm al-Quwain Government through HMBSU’s professional diploma programs. Its second agreement with the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization aims to develop and digitize the Ministry’s initiatives such as its Emiratization strategy, the labor law, and electronic portal. The third agreement with the Dubai Committee of Military Human Resources seeks to develop an electronic platform for the committee and two electronic courses on human resources law and the law of military pensions and social security benefits.
At the end of the meeting, Tamim underscored the significance of “Entrepreneurs, Not Job Seekers” principle adopted by HBMSU in which it encourages graduates to become entrepreneurs and run their own projects. HBMSU launched the “Entrepreneurs Club” on February 21, 2018 to foster entrepreneurship and innovation among the university’s students and graduates.
