To help Lebanese students gain global knowledge and prepare them for the labor market, Maroun Semaan’s Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (MSFEA) at The American University of Beirut (AUB) partnered with LebNet to give engineering graduates the rare opportunity to work with US-based companies for their final year projects (FYPs) and course projects.
This collaboration was launched after LebNet and MSFEA signed a memorandum of agreement in 2019 to create a bridge between students and the Lebanese Diaspora. Final Year Projects is one of the major component in the partnerships and it helps students acquire the global and practical expertise needed in the workforce. Other components include advisory, internship opportunities, talks and seminars, entrepreneurship support and mentorship, and research with industry.
FYPs Academic Year 2019-2020: In 2019 and 2020, four teams from AUB worked with two companies in the US: Asurion (a device insurance, warranty, and support services provider for cell phones, consumer electronics, and home appliances) and FADEL (the creator of rights and royalty management software). Each of the four teams either worked on an FYP or a course project, closely collaborating with mentors from FADEL and Asurion. Find out more about the FYPs and course projects below:
