University of Science and Technology of Fujairah (USTF) believes in the necessity of continuing the co-curricular and extra-curricular annual students’ activities, despite the outbreak of the COVID-19, which has reached a pandemic stage, forcing students all over the country, including our USTF students, to shift to distance learning, in accordance with the instructions of the Ministry of Education (MOE) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to protect students and ensure the continuity of the educational process.
The annual regularly held Student Scientific Conference is one of the most important annual activities at USTF and has been organized without interruption for the last thirteen years in a row. This year, the conference was held on Tuesday and Wednesday, 27th and 28th of April 2021, under the slogan "Forward Together with Research and Innovation to the Emirates Next Fifty."
