ExxonMobil Chair in Science and Technology

In 2015, ExxonMobil Qatar and Qatar University (QU) signed an agreement for the exclusive three-year sponsorship of an academic chair in science and technology education at the university. The ExxonMobil Chair in Science and Technology will work closely with QU’s College of Education to explore methods that provide teachers with an improved educational experience in the fields of science and technology, in addition to increasing the numbers and quality of Arabic science and technology teaching and learning resources. 

The Chair will also collaborate with various QU faculty members in encouraging a larger number of STEM career pathways, among others. STEM students are independent thinkers, collaborators, innovators, and problem solvers with skills that are vital to success in the 21st century.
