Yet Another EBTIC Student Graduates with a Masters

15th of May, 2018

We are really proud that EBTICs own Sara Alshamsi graduated with a Master of Science by research in Engineering in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Khalifa University.
“It’s a huge relief that it’s all done now, it’s been a very enjoyable experience” said Sara.
It all started when Sara completed her internship at EBTIC working on a project to do with Indoor localization. “The work I did then was at a general level, but I learnt a lot and the people at EBTIC were so supportive.”
Khalifa University provided a lot of project proposals for her to consider, and after speaking with Prof. Rasool Asal at EBTIC, she was eager to take on one with EBTIC. “EBTIC were continuing their work on indoor localization, and when I saw that, with my experience from my internship, it all helped me decide to do my MSc and to do it with them too.”
Aside from the team spirit, one of the main reasons Sara wanted to work at EBTIC was because they work directly with companies and UAE Government departments. “It’s great to know my project will make a difference with real companies.”
When reflecting on her last few years in EBTIC, Sara really values the opportunities that came about. She knows, for example, that her presentation skills have developed well as a result. “EBTIC has a lot of visitors from real companies and this gives the students chance to present their projects to them, which is great practice. Not only that, but I get to discuss my projects with real industry experts at ETBIC, getting help and advice, and this has been really useful for me.”
Now that her current studies are over, Sara plans to take a well-earned break, but is keen to start full-time at EBTIC so she can continue her work with real users and customers. Dr Nawaf Almoosa, Deputy Director of EBTIC said “Whether Sara decides to continue towards a PhD, or whether she starts her career in industry, EBTIC is really proud of her and her achievements. We’re glad we’ve been able to give her the opportunity to flourish.”
“I’d recommend EBTIC to anyone!” said Sara, when asked what advice she would give to other Khalifa University students considering working with EBTIC. “You will really enjoy it because it’s not just about the project, it’s about the supportive and friendly team and these people really have an effect on you.”
