Students from AUIS's Engineering Geology class recently visited the Darbandikhan Dam on a recent school-sponsored field trip to learn how concepts taught in the academic program are applied in real-world settings. Taught by Mohamed Shwani, Adjunct Assistant Professor, students made the trip to learn more about dam structures, fluid mechanics, and maintenance of the infrastructure projects. Students were curious to also learn about the effects of recent earthquakes and heavy rains on the structure and safety measures taken.

Last week, Information Technology students taking ITE202 (IT Systems) and ITE301 (Data Communications and Networks), paid a visit to AsiaHawala. The visit was to help them get advice on the IT courses they should focus on, in order to work in similar environments to those AsiaHawala. The event was organized by the IT Department. Dr. Atheer Matroud managed the connection with one of the IT graduates working there, Karzan Fadhil. Karzan presented the tools that they are using to operate all the e-wallet transactions. The good news is, AUIS teaches 80% of the tools and systems AsiaHawala uses. And they admitted that AUIS prepares good and professional candidates. The field trips were managed by AUIS IT Lab Assistant, Berzy Bahzad.
