Qatar University has set up a display area at the City Center mall to showcase the talent currently at the university’s College of Engineering. The displays are led by a one-of-a-kind race-car built by the university’s mechanical engineering students. The car is the centerpiece of the exhibit which will be inaugurated today and will be on display until March 23. The exhibit is one of many initiatives planned by the university to demonstrate the importance of various specialised engineering studies to Qatar’s growing economy. Amer Sandawi, City Center director, said it was one of the most interesting ways to encourage the youth to pursue future education in specialised fields which are of such great importance to a country that is building one of the most advanced knowledge-based economies in the region. Among the other exhibits in the College of Engineering display area will be a frame robot built by students from the computer science and engineering department, detailed architectural scale models produced by the architecture and urban planning department, bridge designing techniques showcased by the civil engineering department and a solar tracker system being demonstrated by the electrical engineering department.
