Bahrain Polytechnic held the Orientation Day for more than 290 students recently enrolled in both the Master programmes as well as the Top-Up programme that provides holders of diploma or higher national diploma with a path to top-up their existing qualifications and obtain a bachelor’s degree.
The Orientation Day was held to introduce candidates to the program content, teaching methods, and the qualifications expected to be obtained upon completion of the programmes. On this occasion, Mr Abdul Ridha Dismal, Director of Lifelong Learning at the Polytechnic, said: “Since the launch of the programme a year ago, it has been very well received by diploma holders, where it received more than 500 applications of diploma holders from Bahrain and the Gulf countries.
This confirms the Polytechnic commitment to promoting a culture of lifelong learning. It also reflects the positive impact of the Polytechnic on society by providing learning and reskilling opportunities for all”.
“The same positive impact was received upon the launch of the Polytechnic Master programmes in July 2023, and which includes: the Master’s in science in Engineering (Applied) in Sustainable Energy Systems, Masters in Science in Artificial Intelligence, and the Masters in International Trade and Strategy,” Dismal added.
“By launching these programmes, the Polytechnic aims to meet the renewable demands of the labour market, and to achieve the Polytechnic Strategic Plan 2023-26 which is compatible with Bahrain Economic Vision 2030 that seeks to create an effective education contributing to the sustainable development process, while ensuring the development of the human element in accordance with the directives of the esteemed government.”
