MUSCAT To connect with the international community in Oman, the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech) has participated in the Career Talks organised at the Indian School Mabeela last weekend. GUtech lecturer Petrit Pasha gave a talk on studying Urban Planning and Architectural Design and Nusaiba Al Sulaimani spoke about Computer Science. “I chose Computer Science because I wanted to solve problems by using time-saving technology,” said Nusaiba Al Sulaimani, who is an alumni of GUtech and has been teaching in the Department of Computer Science at GUtech. “During my studies I conducted an internship at the Ministry of Finance and I travelled abroad for several regional and international competitions,” she said. Nusaiba also attended different courses in Germany. For her studies Nusaiba received a partial scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Nusaiba encouraged the students in the audience who were mainly female, to pursue their dream careers.
“When you study urban planning you start to understand the urban structure,” said GUtech lecturer Mr Petrit Pasha. At GUtech students learn technical drawing as well as making small architectural models. During their studies students have to conduct internships in Oman or abroad and some students are already involved in real-life architectural projects such as the design of a building for the Omani Women Association in Seeb or a parking area on campus. The students were interested in knowing more about careers in architecture and to see some architectural models created by GUtech students.
