I am especially excited this year to announce the launch of a new graduate degree in Energy Engineering as well as a PhD program in Business Administration, hence diversifying our offered graduate education opportunities and providing our students with challenging and inspiring education. With these new programs, female students can now fulfill their ambitions to specialize in emerging and topical fields such as petroleum engineering and renewable energy. These programs also offer our entire community of both students and researchers new possibilities for research and innovation in these exciting fields.
And what says ‘innovation’ better than inventive patents? We are immensely happy that Effat University was recently granted two patents. Presented by the US Patent & Trademark Office and registered under the name of Dr. Mohammed Asmatullah Khan, Leader of the Biometrics & Sensor Systems Lab, one of the patents was given for a method of improving the detection of low-contrast and narrow-width vessels.
