The month of Innovation has again been a hectic time for the HCT-Sharjah campuses, with the Sharjah Men’s (SJM) being the focus of attention as the Faculty of Business hosted its inaugural innovation competition on February 25, which saw 72 students from all majors competing in 10 teams .
All competitors were enrolled in the Innovation and Entrepreneurship course, with their projects being a diverse range of product-based and service innovations, as well as artistic innovations. A video showing two years of photography about Sharjah Emirate was a good quality example of innovative arts. Other projects presented covered different industries, such as home electrical machines, cars, sustainability, 3D glasses, traffic solutions, tourism, medicine smart applications, and women’s sports facilities.
The winning concepts were a hybrid car, a sustainability machine and a software Application called E-doctor.
The event was full of activities, other than the innovation challenge. Students were able to attend a workshop about a new patent presented by Dr. Saeed Al Hassan, Associate Professor at Khalifa University, as well as a discussion panel about the secrets of success of innovators and entrepreneurs.
The discussion panel included Dr. Saeed Al Hassan in the field of Chemical Engineering, Dr. Ali Al Aani in the field of Business consultancy, Dr. Wasif Minhas, in the field of General Education, & Mr. Fahad Al Shaer an “A” student who has won many competitions, and is a successful innovator and entrepreneur as well.
