Pro-Green and Energy Studies students' technical training trip to the UAE

​​The Munib and Angela Masri Institute of Energy and Natural Resources at AUB organized the second technical training trip, this time to renewable sustainable cities in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, as well as to an international exhibition for the power industry in Dubai. Over five days, a group of 15 students from the Pro-Green online joint professional diploma program in green technologies and energy studies programs at the Maroun Semaan Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (MSFEA) were able to examine sustainable development efforts in this part of the region, in the company of three faculty members from MSFEA and two Pro-Green program ambassadors.

Below are testimonials from the students:

“This was an inspirational, memorable trip that puts the diploma’s learning platform in the practical context while allowing for a bonding between great colleagues and a sharing of experiences through its well-organized sessions." (Adiba Al Masri, Pro-Green)

“The technical training trip was a great educational and eye-opening experience for three main reasons: first, I got the chance to witness first-hand the operation of renewable energy plants that I only knew about in theory. Secondly, being able to travel to a nice area with a group of interesting people from different backgrounds is by itself a refreshing boost. Third, we got the chance to meet experts in the field and have interesting discussions with them." (Ahmad Diab, Energy Studies)
