The Skyline University team won 1st place in the much-coveted Sharjah Sustainability Award (SSA). Skyliners Sahtaj Sultana and Hamza Paracha worked on the Smart Application for the Wasit Nature Reserve, which won 1st place in the Smart Application domain for three years in a row. The Smart application developed for the Wasit Nature Reserve includes information on the area's endangered animals and plants. Its features include gifs, sounds, maps, and social media to make the application more interesting, and is organized in such a way that it is both user-friendly and interactive.
The team was supervised by faculty members Dr. Mohammed Abdul Salam and Dr. Deepak Kalra, who is also the Director of Learning Resources, with the support from the Community Service Committee headed by Dr. Osama Ali Thawabeh, Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. Taleb Bilal Eli, Dr. Sharon Mendoza Dreisbach.
Furthermore, Skyline University College faculty member, Dr. Abdul Salam Mohammed, has been nominated to be a member of the judging panel of SSA University 9th Cycle in two domains and Ms. Nadine Felix has been nominated as a judge under school categories.
To the students and faculty members involved in this project, congratulations on this milestone! The Skyline community is so proud of you!
