He also underlined ALHOSN’s great success and commitment in the past seven years to bring the dreams of national students and graduates to fruition.
“Although this is the first time that ALHOSN University is taking part in the Tamaiaz & Falak Tayyeb Award, we have been staying abreast of the remarkable achievements of the Award in the past years. The Award had been instrumental in fueling students’ desire to achieve excellence and self-fulfillment. I would like to take this opportunity to propose before the Board of Trustees to add a new category that covers engineering projects,” said Prof . Sabouni.
