We kicked off 2018 with an exclusive evening with Dr. Alan Shihadeh, new Dean of the Maroun Semaan Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (SFEA) who was visiting the Bay Area.
In addition to his newly appointed role as Dean, Dr. Shihadeh currently serves as an advisor to the FDA, a scientific expert to the WHO, and a Project Director and Executive Leadership Committee member of the Center for the Study of Tobacco Products at Virginia Commonwealth University as well as many other roles in various prominent organizations. Read his full bio here.
Attendees took the opportunity to have an intimate and engaging event with Dr. Shihadeh as he discussed a new school of design within the faculty of Engineering and Architecture, redesigning the curriculm to include more classes on modern, soft skills, such as creative writing etc..
Dr. Shihadeh suggested to have LebNet members come in to teach short courses for 6 to 12 months, and to give talks to AUB students, in collaboration with LebNet.
The discussion was followed by dynamic Q&A and networking.
Special thanks to AUB Alumni Bay Area Chapter for their ongoing collaboration and to all who attended this sold event!
