Week 14 started with a bang with the commencement of HCT Sharjah Innovates. During this innovation-centric week the HCT-Sharjah Women’s campus (SJW) celebrated the students’ innovative activities in class and on campus. The events were organized by various members of our student clubs, Tomouh and Shumoukh, SHC Innovation Committee and the Innovation Week Task Force as well as faculty and staff from all divisions.
In the Applied Media department, student artwork and innovative projects were displayed in the A-Block Dome area and included the following:
- Project related to Sustainable Recycled Design in Dress form and Jewelry design. This contribution was made by the students of the Sustainable and Social Design course and was supervised and coordinated by faculty, Ilze Loza and Dr. Nadia Hassani. Visitors to the exhibit were invited to submit their votes for the best sustainable dress design. The winning student will be awarded with a certificate of achievement.
- Project on Digital room designs done by students – poster presentation and videos demonstrating the art medium. Artwork contributed by students of Visual Communications and was coordinated by faculty Salwa Nabhan.
- Interactive Art Form – digital display by level 7 students – coordinated by Faculty Ilze Loza.
- Display of art work done by the Final Year students wherein the contributions were made by three Final Project Course Students – Safiya Rashed, Alia Mohammed and Shaikha Mohammed. The artwork was submitted through Faculty Susan De Guzman.
The students were excited by the comments they received, especially the Final Year students as they received a number of requests for purchase of their artwork. Shaikha commented, “I feel proud of my work and what I have learned at the college.”
The students were grateful to the Sharjah Colleges and HCT for providing the opportunity to showcase student projects and look forward to the bigger innovative displays in February 2018.
