On 31 January 2012, the Faculty of Engineering at BZU held a workshop on student graduation projects.  The workshop aspired to achieve the objectives of the graduation projects by consolidating the positive interaction between the universities and the labor market.

In his opening address, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Adnan Yahya, stressed the importance of coordination with the industrial sector in paving the way for graduation projects to meet market needs and at the same time demonstrate the skills acquired by graduates. He underscored the special relationship between academia and industry, especially in the engineering field. Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Dr. Afif Hasan, noted that this workshop aligned with the concerted efforts of the Faculty of Engineering to strengthen its relationship with the labor market.


During the first part of the workshop, BZU, An-Najah University, Palestine Polytechnic University, Al-Quds University and Palestine Technical University presented their experiences in graduation projects and coordination mechanisms with the private sector in terms of follow-up and evaluation.  In the second part of the workshop, the participating companies presented their experiences, as well as comments on required qualifications and skills students need to complete their graduation projects.

The workshop ended with a discussion of the presentations, followed by recommendations from the academic and professional sectors. In addition to the workshop, an exhibition of engineering students’ graduation projects at Palestinian universities was held.
