The Community College of Qatar (CCQ) is participating in the 9th edition of the annual University Expo Qatar (UniExpo), at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center, which is being held from 16 to 17 October.

The two-day exhibition brings secondary school students, parents, school administrators, career advisors, and key academic influencers under one roof to network and explore educational opportunities at more than 100 prestigious universities, colleges and academic institutions that represent over 15 countries at the event. CCQ’s dedicated booth at the event serves as a platform for more than 3,000 visiting high school students and professionals willing to continue their education, with the aim of navigating through the College’s academic programs that span a multitude of exciting fields and disciplines. The high-demand degree programs are tailored for the local and international job market needs and have been developed to meet the requirements of a 21st-century knowledge-based society.

Commenting on the College’s participation at the prominent higher education fair, CCQ’s President Dr. Mohamed Ibrahim Al-Naemi, said: “With every edition of University Expo Qatar, the exhibition reflects the constant progress that the country’s education scene is witnessing. And every time we are a part of this premier higher education platform, we proudly showcase CCQ’s growing range of academic offerings, as well as the various improvements we’ve introduced to enhance our students’ educational journey at the College.”

He added: “This year, we continue to play an active role in helping high school students plan for their future and learn more about the different learning routes at CCQ, through which they will have the opportunity to join the ranks of many successful CCQ alumni who have gone on to assume leading positions at prominent institutions, or further their education at one of our select partner universities around the world. On behalf of everyone at CCQ, I would like to thank the event’s organizers for helping our youth carve their path towards realizing their academic and career aspirations.”

Visiting students shared their views on their future plans.

Meanwhile, Abd al-Rahman al-Jaber, a student at the Tariq bin Ziad Secondary School for Boys, pointed out that he is planning to study Arabic literature at CCQ, and after the College’s academic advisors at today’s event addressed his questions regarding the study plan to follow to enter this field, he is more willing to enroll in this course of study. 

As part of the College’s participation, Chair of the Information Technology (IT) Program, Dr. Mohammed Al-Dorani, is presenting visitors and stakeholders with insightful information on the various specializations in IT on offer at CCQ. Additionally, Chair of the Engineering Technology (ET) Department at CCQ, Dr. Ahmad Al-Omari, will be delivering a presentation on the College’s ET programs and the wide range of technical roles that their students can assume upon graduation. The College’s academic advisors will also be meeting one-on-one with students interested in discovering CCQ’s diverse range of learning paths while providing them with personalized advice and detailed explanations on the right programs for their respective career choices.

CCQ’s participation at the Expo comes in the framework of its ongoing efforts to bring a holistic student-centered education to Qatar’s younger generation and help them define a brighter future for themselves and their communities. The event is also a great opportunity to foster and strengthen the College’s partnership with leading schools in the country to open more educational horizons for Qatari youth and ensure students’ successful and smooth transition from high school to college life.
