Student Clubs

1. Academic Clubs

 

The university aims to create, develop and provide cultural and social activities for its students to enhance their educational and personal development.

The Student Affairs Office is continuously working on providing opportunities for students to develop their leadership and social skills as well as their individual responsibility through participation in student activities and organizations. The office carries out recreation programs and services, works with students to develop arts and various cultural programs and advises the student government.

The student union is a key player in shaping campus activities and helps develop students' sense of social responsibility. Various student organizations exist under the umbrella of the student union.

Part of the plan is to establish clubs that simulate real life situations as well as entities such as the International Conference for Global Economy (ICGE), Model United Nations (MUN), AIESEC internships abroad, and Model Arab League (MAL).

2. Community Service

Community service is one way students can channel their energy to benefit our communities, institution, and themselves. Providing much-needed resources and services to our communities is one way students can learn essential intangible leadership skills such as persuasion and mediation. By doing so, they will also gain business domain specific knowledge that will prove to be an invaluable asset to future employability, in addition to adding value to communities that are in need of such services.

The Student Affairs Office will work closely with existing and future clubs, community organizations, corporate entities, NGOs and nonprofit organizations, in alignment with the university’s mission, to facilitate the creation of the community services that will add value to our communities, institution and students.

ActivityTypeDescription
Codex Cultural and Social

Just about any aspect of our modern lives is influenced directly by a code; today almost every medium to large-sized company either has a team of developers or has to hire developers to do jobs for them. The real benefit of learning how to program is being able to automate simple tasks and find new ways to solve problems. Learning programming is all about learning how to take complex problems and break them down into smaller parts. This trains your mind to think about problems in a different way.
