Ministry and UDST officials with training program participants at the closing ceremony.

Doha University for Science and Technology (UDST), in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE), has completed two training programs in Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things (AI/ IoT) and the Python programming language.
The AI/IoT program was delivered to 21 teachers while the Python program was delivered to 21 other teachers.
The ceremony marking the completion was attended by Maha Al Rowaili, Deputy Undersecretary for Educational Affairs at MoEHE; Dr Salem Al Naemi, President UDST; and several managers of the two entities.
Participants received a certificate of completion and were encouraged to use the skills learned in both trainings to enhance students‘ STEM learning.
Commenting on the event, Dr. Al Naemi said, “These training programs represent an excellent opportunity for teachers, who will be able to introduce their students to complex subjects and different technological platforms. Our training programs have been conducted in some of the most technologically advanced laboratories that the university encompasses. We are proud to announce that the AI/IoT training program is a first in Qatar and marks the importance the University places on innovation, applied education and knowledge transfer.
“We thank the Ministry of National Education and Higher Education for the trust it places in the UDST. There is no doubt that with all the support from the state and especially the ministry, future generations of Qatar will serve as an example of regional and global innovation and show what an implementation of smart technology is all about. able.
The 28-hour hands-on training consisted of 8 lessons. Teachers enrolled in the Python training program got to work on variables and primitive data types, control structure, collections, and file processing, while teachers in the AI/IoT training program got to experiment with the technology automated urban agriculture; home security and different types of remote sensing platforms.
These training programs and their subsequent delivery in schools are key to developing students’ interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). Furthermore, such an education not only supports the advancement of students with their STEM skills, but also develops other 21st century transferable skills such as teamwork, communication, and innovation.
Training in AI/IoT and Python creates a new perspective on technology for teachers. Through these programs, they can strengthen students’ motivation to learn and explore more, ensuring that Qatar’s education system develops a progressive and adaptable generation capable of sustainable development, as outlined in the Qatar National Vision 2030.
