Burnishing its credentials as a leading center for innovation in the Middle East, the American University of Sharjah (AUS), in the Emirate of Sharjah, partnered with Sui to launch a new center for blockchain research.
The initiative comes as part of the Emirate of Sharjah’s objective of positioning itself as a regional hub for education and research, particularly in the field of technology and blockchain. This effort complements the neighboring Emirate of Dubai's leading position in the blockchain industry, ensuring a healthy level of regional expertise in building new decentralized apps and integrating the technology into existing infrastructure.
AUS hosts a range of colleges, covering diverse subjects including art, design, engineering, and business administration. Its student population represents over 90 countries, giving graduates global reach. Cultivating blockchain engineering, AUS will remain at the forefront of technology.
Students will be able to learn how a decentralized infrastructure works and discover the tools they need to build innovative apps leveraging Sui's unique capabilities.
The partnership shows Sui's commitment to growing blockchain engineering expertise, a crucial skill that will be needed to bring the benefits of the technology into existing systems and domains. In a similar initiative, Sui partnered with the London Business School's Wheeler Institute to promote blockchain research, and Sui maintains an active program of academic research awards.
