Introducing the
Delivering on Articulated Needs
Our nations founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin
Sultan Al Nahayan, created
a huge momentum in educating and developing
our country. We want to
maintain the momentum by investing in our future

Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoun Al Nahayan The
secret for success lies in learning better how to
think and how to use our power of thought so that
we are not only a part of the future we are
designers of the future, creative thinkers who
can imagine how things can be, and show the way.
Nahayan, Minister of Higher Education
Technology Chancellor HCT/CERT Learning here
plays a pivotal and basic role, hence the
flourishing of any country is related to the
educational level of its people, which explains
the international concern and interest in this
field, as well as the educational jump witnessed
in China and India. In these two countries alone,
950,000 engineers graduated this year"
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al
Maktoum (Ms. LaBonte) I would like to thank you
for bringing this idea forward to my attention I
too share your belief that this would benefit the
school and college students of the region
