Bright Minds provides the students with the necessary theoretical principles and practical skills to build their capacity in a variety of contexts related to different engineering disciplines. The programme encompasses three main aspects:
The theoretical aspect, the practical aspect and the awareness aspect. The theoretical aspect focuses on basic principles offered in a professional manner that is different from traditional tutoring, where students get the opportunity to search for information and use their knowledge in useful ways through the second aspect, which mainly concentrates on polishing the students practical skills and sing information on the ground. Both aspects will be supported by extracurricular activities, including field visits to research centres in Qatar Science and Technology Park, as well as laboratories of leading industrial companies such as QAPCO, in addition to attending a specialized conference on youth innovations, whether on the regional or international level, before the programme culminates with the students’ participation it’s the annual research exhibition held by the Supreme Council, where each participant presents their own project.
Through the programme, GORD hopes to inspire ambitious researchers with innovative ideas, and equip them with required skills that help convert their creative thinking into innovative practical projects.
