The College of Engineering Vice deanship for Development and Quality organized an introductory lecture about the Alumni and Employment Website, which was launched few days ago. The lecture was attended by the dean of the college, Prof. Khalid Ibrahim Alhumaizi, and the college’s Vice Dean for Development and Quality, Dr. Waleed Zahid, as well as a number of faculty members and college students. The lecture was delivered by Dr. Ahmed M. El-Sherbeeny (Head of Alumni and Employment Unit) on Tuesday, 18 Jumada-II, 1436H (April 7, 2015). Dr. El-Sherbeeny first presented the website objectives, features, and some relevant statistics. This was followed by an active, online presentation of website capabilities and options. Finally the floor was given to participants for discussion and questions, where some of the attendees provided some suggestions aimed at improving the performance and general layout of the website, all of which are to be implemented in the near future.

The site can be accessed through the college web site. Some of the main objectives of the site are: Building an information database dedicated to alumni through registration on the website, as well as updating personal, career-related information, and CV’s; assisting in establishing communication amongst alumni and with the college of engineering through alumni blogs, alumni search engine, and contact page for inquiries directed to the Alumni and Employment Unit; assisting college alumni in locating and directly applying for job opportunities advertised by companies registered on the website; and developing an information database for companies through registration on the website, and regularly updating their profile, and making this information accessible for college alumni.
