A team from the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) comprised of students Nisin Mathew and Kartik Rao (and ably sponsored by Melissa Bos, lecturer in the College of Business) beat 23 other university teams to win the Emirates Environmental Group Inter-Collegiate Public Speaking Competition conducted at Knowledge Village on Tuesday, 22nd November.
Each team was required to submit a comprehensive research paper on a designated environmental topic. UOWDs paper, "Sustainable Transportation in the UAE Is that Practical? was adjudged the winner in the Transportation category and in the Overall Competition.
This is further testimony to the fact that UOWD is a leader in research and that UOWD students are amongst the best in the UAE.
