NYIT co-sponsored and participated in the recent Al Ain Education and Career Fair (AECF), which took place 28-30 April at the Al Ain Convention Center in Al Ain, U.A.E. The three-day fair, which helps young people prepare for higher education and careers, was inaugurated by His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, the U.A.E.’s minister of culture, youth, and community development (pictured, right, greeting NYIT Admissions Officer Ms. Manar Odeh).

Several of the nation’s institutions of higher education joined NYIT in highlighting their academic programs and opportunities to the thousands of school students who attended the fair. In addition, major companies based in the Emirates sought new graduates to staff their organizations. Khurram Saeed, AECF’s Exhibition Director, stated, “The substantial growth of this fair over the past six years is a testament to the growing demand for local talent. We actually sold out of floor space six weeks before the event.”

NYIT-Abu Dhabi Campus Dean Garon Wheeler, Ph.D., stated, "NYIT has enjoyed participating in AECF for several years. Our educational mission extends throughout the UAE, not just to Abu Dhabi. Our presence at this event has allowed NYIT students to share their experiences with potential students, to give them and their families a sense of what it is like to study at our university."

In addition to NYIT, sponsors for Al Ain Education & Career Fair 2014 included the General Headquarters of the U.A.E. Armed Forces; Abu Dhabi Vocational Education and Training Institute (ADVETI); the Institute of Applied Technology (IAT); Etihad Airways; Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC); and Al Khawarizmi International College.
