The College of Arts and Science has participated in the international competition 48 hours creativity led by Dr. Wassem Ahmad from Interior Design Department and team members consisting of Dr. Udai, Dr. Manaf, and Dr. Farah Jadid with the participation of 28 students.
The competition was organized by the National School for Industrial Systems and Innovation at the University of Lorraine/ France. College students around the world were challenged by major companies in France to generate creative ideas for specific business solutions within a 48 hour deadline. The goal was for students to gain practical skills in the early stages of a project, including research and idea generation, prioritizing ideas under a time constraint, and collaborating with partners in other countries during the development process.
Members of ASU Senior Management Team attended the event represented by the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Development, Deans of the colleges, the Dean of the students Affairs & Evening Studies, Heads of departments and many lecturers.
ASU students handled some projects among ten projects which were: the future on-line professional training, improving the sleeping experience hospital sector, and conceiving tomorrow’s individual air transport.
Dr. Wassim guided ASU students to collaborate with student design teams from universities around the world. Students here spoke with French university students to discuss their ideas in Skype video conferencing sessions via French and English languages. The students received feedback from big name corporate sponsors. Not forgetting that this is the third time where ASU is joining this international competition.
