Becomes first Abu Dhabi –based private university to take part in recognition
UAE, March 17th, 2013 – ALHOSN University has confirmed its first-ever participation in the Tamaiaz & Falak Tayyeb Award, an excellence-driven competition open to Emirati university seniors and fresh graduates. The university joins an elite group of 11 public and private universities to promote innovation, creativity and competitiveness among young UAE Nationals. ALHOSN is the only private university based in Abu Dhabi to take part in the award.
Currently in its 6th edition, the Tamaiaz & Falak Tayyeb Award – which translates as ‘be distinguished and your dreams will be fulfilled’ – is an annual contest that honors top-notch research works and projects made by aspiring Emiratis aged 25 years and below. ALHOSN University recently received visiting award representatives who delivered a presentation on the application guidelines and selection criteria. Students were encouraged to develop projects and studies under the award’s seven major categories: Marketing, Communications and Media; Leadership and Management; Accounting, Banking and Finance; Society and the Environment; Science, Technology and Inventions; Entrepreneurship; and Design, Photography and Film.
“We follow a university motto of fostering ‘global knowledge with local vision,’ which the Tamaiaz & Falak Tayyeb Award fully complements. By inculcating creativity and excellence among young Emiratis, we build up the skills they need to achieve professional success while reinforcing their participation in national development. We take great pride in the works to be showcased by our students, especially as we are joining for the first time and are the sole representative of Abu Dhabi’s private higher education sector,” said Prof. Raymond Tennant, Provost and Acting Vice Chancellor, ALHOSN University.
The Tamaiaz & Falak Tayyeb Award was launched in late 2007 with the objectives of supporting Emiratization in the private sector, encouraging creativity and excellence among young UAE Nationals, and providing job opportunities for outstanding contestants. The 2013 edition is currently accepting individual and group entries until May 12, 2013. This year’s event will be held under the patronage of Sheikh Maktoum Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Deputy Ruler of Dubai. More details are available at http://www.tamaiaz.ae.
