Middlesex University Dubai’s Department of Computer Engineering & Informatics, together with the Office of Careers & Employability, recently held a Career Day for all current students, led by Dr Eliseo Ferrante.

The day was divided into two sessions, the first of which witnessed prominent speakers and panelists from the Human Resources, Government and Private Sectors, introduced by our Director, Dr Cedwyn Fernandes.

Mr Laurent Samson, HP Senior Recruitment Consultant at SAP MENA shared with students the Human Resource perspective of large IT companies. Mr Samson was followed by Mr Rakan Brahedni, Head of Technology at AREA 2071 (part of Dubai Future Foundation), who gave a motivational talk on the Government’s initiatives towards encouraging entrepreneurship.

The esteemed panel comprised of Mr Amol Kadam, Co-Founder of Red Blue Blur Ideas, Mr Hussam Refaat, Senior Director at Oracle, Mr Indumon Das, Founder and Principal Consultant at BEINEX and Ms Ayesha Mujahid, Pre-Sales Solution Architect at IBM. The University was also honoured to welcome Dr Amit Garg, holder of the Guinness World Record in Mathematics and Chief Scientist at ORMAE. The panelists shared their own experiences of their career paths and informed students of the skills and technologies to focus on in such a hyper-competitive market. Being open to learning from failure, maintaining passion, commitment and discipline and enhancing soft skills were emphasised by the panelists and students were fully engaged and inspired.

The second part of the event enabled students to meet with employers for one-on-one interviews and networking. 17 companies were present, offering computing and IT related opportunities, including our Academic Alliance partners Dell EMC, IBM and Oracle.
