The British University in Dubai held its 3rd Doctoral Research Conference on Saturday 13 May 2017. In line with its commitment as the leading research -based University in the region, BUiD welcomed more than 70 postgraduate students who participated in the conference from different universities from the UAE and UK. Students’ research presentations covered different areas of sustainability, project management, finance, IT and education. The conference was sponsored by Al Maktoum Foundation, Dubai International Academic City, and PMI UAE – Khaleeji Chapter.

BUiD Dean of Research, Prof Ashly Pinnington, said, “This Conference provides an excellent opportunity for our students to showcase their research and share their findings with postgraduate students from other universities from the UAE and UK. Participating in specialist doctoral conferences is important for refining high-level skills and gaining more experience in presenting and discussing scientific research.”

The students delivered their research presentations through different sessions chaired by BUiD’s professors who directed discussion based on questions put by the audience. Other presentations were also made by Skype from students from the UK. At the end of the conference, students’ presentations were assessed by a committee of academics from BUiD. Six students received Best Paper Awards, which were given by Professor Alshamsi and Professor Pinnington.
