For the third consecutive year, I participated lately in the biannual advisory board meeting of New York Institute for Technology (NYIT) in Abu Dhabi. The meeting was an opportunity to thank Dr. Ahmad Tabbara for his efforts and achievements during his service as campus Dean, and to wish him all the best with his new responsibilities. Welcomed was Dr. Chakib Farhat, the new Interim Executive Director. The board consists of seven members who provide support and consultancy services to the management team by discussing and reviewing the overall performance, along with new expansion plans such as launching a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and two new Master’s programs. NYIT is the first American university established in the United Arab Emirates’ capital city.
