His Excellency Engr. Mustafa Mohammed Al Mahdi, the Chief Executive Officer of the Royal Commission in Jubail, met recently with the graduating students of the RC-Jubail Colleges and Institutes Sector and listened to their inquiries and suggestions.
Prior to the meeting with the graduates, Engr. Al Mahdi went around seeing some of the student projects that have been completed during the current academic year. Among the projects presented by JIC students is the 'Smart City' project that is supported by multi-use central electronic guidance boards that guides vehicle drivers to places and landmarks in the city, as well as in the event of accidents and disasters where application signals are sent to guide the drivers to empty places. Another distinguished project is the 'Smart Door', which can identify faces, and opens or closes doors with a smart software that facilitates face recognition. The Smart Door project helps prevent the entry of unauthorized persons, and definitely, door keys or magnetic cards are not needed. Another project is the 'Smart Car' that do not need a leader or guide but rather identifies, uses, and accesses site tracks. Lastly is the 'Smart Blind' designed specifically for the blind to detect the road and give warnings when there is a barrier along the way.
During the meeting, Engr. Al Mahdi explained to the students the strategy of the Royal Commission in Jubail to modernize the academic curriculum and transform the teaching methods to keep up with the industry. This strategy will result to having a high employment rate of graduates in various fields, whether in Jubail or in all regions of the Kingdom, which also indicates that the education methodology adopted by the Royal Commission in Jubail is in line with the needs of the industry. At the end of the meeting, an open discussion followed thereafter. Several questions and inquiries from the students, which were focused on how to develop strategic plans for them after graduation, were answered.
