Texas A&M University at Qatar and Qatar University are jointly organizing the Eighth Annual Symposium on Material Sciences and Engineering. The 2017 edition will be held on March 16th at the Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) Student Center in Education City.
Experts from academic institutions, research centers, companies and government organizations participate in this symposium every year in order to discuss the latest advances in materials science and engineering. This year’s event will address the theme “Advanced Materials for Reliable Energy Systems: —IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE” to support research grand challenges in the State of Qatar. The symposium will feature speakers from top international academic institutions, Texas A&M at Qatar, Qatar University and industry.
The symposium program is designed to stimulate active discussions among participants through the presentations, posters and panel discussion. The poster presentations will be an integral part of this eighth edition of the annual symposium and the session is designed to provide an opportunity for the presenters (faculty, researchers and students) to get valuable feedback on their work.
