A group of HCT-Ras Al Khaimah Men’s College (RKMC) Engineering students visited the Falcon Pack factory outlets in Ras Al Khaimah to observe the highly automated manufacturing processes.
The objective of the field trip was to observe first hand instruments and control devices used in industrial automations.
Falcon Pack and other industrial organisations were recently introduced to the college’s database and have shown great support to our Engineering students. The company, established in 1992, is the leading manufacturer and distributor of disposable packaging products for food services in the Middle East.
During this visit students were able to observe industrial machines operating in real-time circumstances. In addition, students interacted with engineers and workers and received positive feedback regarding their field of study.
Falcon Pack Human Resources manager, Mr. Asem Hamaid and Production Engineer, Ahmed Fouda led the tour and explained the different plant operations and engineering concepts behind the highly automated machines, while responding to the students’ questions.
HCT-RKMC students and faculty members greatly benefited from the visit. The positive feedback from students reinforced the Engineering Technology & Sciences Faculty members’ commitment in RAK Colleges to the HCT’s Learning by Doing initiative.
