June 7, 2009:

The iDesign year-long course, endorsed by Schlumberger, consisted of teams made up of students from four universities (Rice in USA, TokyoTech in Japan, UAEU in UAE, and ParisTech in France). Each team had students from two universities. The team supervised by Dr. Nikolaos Mavridis, which consisted of two students from CIT (Noura Al Dhaheri and Klaithem Al Nuaimi), alongside with college of engineering and Tokyotech representatitves, won the “Best Pipe Inspection Robot” award. This was a real victory for our students, and also provided valuable experience to them and exposure to our college.
