Fall 2013 CIS Orientation at Masdar Institute
We're welcoming the newest batch of students to Masdar Institute this week. From what I've seen of at least those specializing in Computing and Information Sciences among the incoming students, they're a unique mix of nationalities.
They're also fortunate to be the first batch to enter the university after the campus expansion was officially opened for use last month. That means plenty more office, lab and living space for them.
I delivered the STEVAS lab's talk on behalf of the lab's head, who was away. A couple of the students took a keen interest in our work, and I gathered from the self-introductions that some others had experience or interest in relevant areas of research and/or industry. I look forward to working with any of them who do make it into our lab.
