Ambassadors of the Future Program is a crucial step towards the UAE vision and pioneering plans
Visits to the Switzerland and Colorado institutes and laboratories
Breaking the traditional instructional stereotype by actual experiments
New concepts of physics, chemistry and mathematics under the Ambassadors of the Future Program
In its pursuit of qualifying leading human cadres in the various fields and developing their highest skills and most profound forms of knowledge, Ambassadors of the Future Program tours several European capitals known for their distinguished position in entrepreneurship and practical research under “Our Ambassadors” initiative. Such tours aim to identify the best practical practices and applications which have become essential future requirements and a real guarantee which contribute to the human cadres’ leadership and excellence.
The Ambassadors of the Future Program, in which 100 students participated, is carried out by the Ministry of Education (MOE) with the purpose of opening UAE student’s horizons to future international developments and crucial academic requirements, which provide the society with its future leading potentials and development grounds in response to the wise leadership’s vision. The vision foresees the UAE standing on the verge of the future, and recognizes the importance of equipping the coming generations with the means of competitiveness in the local, as well as international markets across borders which are only accessible by those who possess high knowledge and skills.
In this context, the MOE sent two student delegations to the University of Colorado in The USA and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ), to contribute to achieving a future vision and approach of the coming years in UAE. The choice of both destinations is determined upon their leading and precedent roles in future promising fields, and in the academic mechanisms developments which draw the future academic features and requirements.
In the framework of the Ambassadors of the Future Program, MOE achieved major educational and academic aims, since the students participating were introduced to university life nature and procedures. The Program crushed the outdated stereotype of academic instructional fields which were focused on oral lectures and guidelines.Over a period of more than one month, the students lived in a university-like atmosphere and got to know the most important features of it; how to select an academic specialty and how the university student’s life progresses. The Program introduces new conceptions of physics, chemistry and mathematics and shows the students how to regulate and maintain the balance of the universe through practical applications.
In the context of the Ambassadors of the Future Program, the visit to the University of Colorado in The USA included visiting leading research space centers and laboratories, including the Laboratory for Atmospheric & Space Physics, which is considered a research partner of Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) in The UAE’s Hope Mars Mission, and The UAE’s Space Exploration Project. Students had the chance to identify the stages of the project implementation and the steps taken to the point of its announcement.
Our students were introduced to entrepreneurship and renewable energy engineering, which is now a key feature of the future and to the medical specialties and means of university admissions.
The delegation of the Ambassadors of the Future Program that travelled to Switzerland visited the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), and had a close perspective of physics and astronomy. They were lectured by experts on the future trends in generating electricity from clean energy resources which achieve environmental sustainability. They also visited the Federal Institute of Technology and its laboratories of physics and chemistry.
