Doha, – The Qatar University Alumni Association (QUAA) recently held the annual meeting of its board of directors which was attended by HE Minister of Energy and Industry Dr. Mohammed bin Saleh Al Sada who was appointed QUAA President, QU President Dr Hassan Al Derham and board members.

HE the Minister of Energy and Industry said, “In the eyes of its graduates, QU is not just an academic institution that offers academic degrees while contributing to the development of Qatar into a modern nation and to the country’s journey to the future. QU is the “Key of Life” that opens doors for its graduates, giving them access to development, growth and prosperity. Every Qatari household has been directly or indirectly attached to QU. We had a student who walked in, full of hope and ambition; a graduate who walked out, loaded with knowledge and unforgettable memories; a professor who passed down his or her experience to the University’s students; or an employee who contributed through his or her knowledge to the growth and progress of his or her beloved country.” He added, “I am so proud of being one of QU’s forty thousand alumni. Since its establishment in 2012, the association has served as a link that binds together thousands of graduates from all over the world, regardless of their interests, profession and country affiliation. The association has also succeeded in just a few years to launch a number of outstanding projects that contributed to promoting the positive image of QU graduates.” Dr. Hassan Al Derham said, “QU graduates are the university’s ambassadors everywhere and we are proud when our graduates are appointed in various positions that have a significant impact on the society and its social and economic growth. QU relies on its alumni association to achieve its various strategies and objectives. QU continues to deliver on its mission to become a catalyst for development in the State of Qatar and a key partner in the fulfillment of the goals of Qatar National Vision 2030.” (QNA)
