Dr. Hadi’s speech was followed by a brief presentation from Mr. Hersh Gardi, the CEO of Yana Banking Services, in which he highlighted the importance of the widespread electronic payment services offered by the company and the essential steps needed to forge a path to payment digitization adoption within the government and private sector.
The second session of the workshop was presented by Ms. Darsim Bakr, which fully focused on how to enrich the students’ university experience and how to make the most out of each course taught. Ms. Bakr also highlighted the importance of building strong communication skills and their impact on the workplace, career, productivity, and personal development. Further to this, some tips and tricks on boosting the graduates’ chances of landing a job after graduation were also shared and discussed.
The workshop was concluded by the certification and plague awarding ceremony by the Faculty of Engineering represented by the Dean of Faculty, Dr. Halit Vural, and the Vice-Dean of Faculty, Mr. Safwan Mawlood, to the workshop presenters.
