The University of Bahrain has a mission to change the future of higher education in Bahrain and improve outcomes by bridging the gap between the university of Bahrain and industry. Typically, progressive economies have strong university-industry integration.

The work of the UOB’s Office for Industry Engagement is an opportunity for the UOB faculty and students to collaborate with industry and other stakeholders to develop a sustainable mutually beneficial relationship as the UOB attempts to future proof Bahrain’s economic and social development.

The Industry engagement office will build on the strategic objectives of our national higher education and national research strategies for the kingdom of Bahrain, which was launched by the Higher Education Council in 2014. The University supports integration with industry through the industry engagement office to provide support to the industry through some the following key areas of work:

  • Co-ordinate with the key industries to understand their skills and business needs to help them improve their business output and quality through a skilled workforce.
  • Help create sustainable business through involving industry experts in curriculum design, teaching and introducing relevant programs and specialties.
  • Through knowledge exchange and ongoing support create opportunities for UOB to provide value for money business solutions, consultancy and to provide access to specialist knowledge.
  • To co-create value with industry through longer term aspirations of leading edge industry focused research and driving innovation.
