Becoming an engineer is no easy feat, and this program designed for youths in Qatar aims to make it easier.

The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) and the Qatar Scientific Club (QSC) have announced the launch of the second edition of the Future Engineer Program.

The program aims to guide students in various engineering disciplines in choosing their paths. It offers students workshops in different engineering fields.

The program has two stages – the first involves introducing students to the mechanisms of working in laboratories and the departments of Ashghal over five days. It will offer an overview of Ashghal and its role in infrastructure development, familiarizing participants with the importance of project management and planning, including the objectives and scope identification.

Participants will also be able to partake in discussions on risk management, project management, and project implementation, including a brainstorming session, wherein they will be asked to identify and address significant problems facing Ashghal.

They will also be given opportunities to visit a site to learn to apply project management principles in different projects and contexts. In addition, participants can also learn about contractual procedures from pre-contract to post-contract management.

For the program’s second stage, participants will be introduced to the laboratories of the QSC.

Established in 1987, the QSC is a non-profit organization offering training programs, workshops, and activities in a number of scientific fields.

QSC Deputy Executive Director, Eng. Abdulrahman Saleh Khamis said: “We are fully ready to welcome participants to implement their practical projects in QSC laboratories, which were designed for the implementation of modern technological projects, to match the aspirations of the young people and enable them to simulate the reality of work when they graduate and work in engineering fields.”

The previous edition of the program welcomed 32 Qatari youths with several workshops on various engineering topics, such as electrical and electronic engineering, oil and gas engineering, design, manufacturing, software, robotics, reverse engineering, and mechanical and aeronautical engineering.
