Overview

The Career Advising and Student Training Office (CASTO) handles three divisions which ultimately assist students with their personal and professional development, job placement, gaining international  experience, and other career development activities and counselling services.

 

Our Career Advising Unit organizes various workshops related to portfolio preparations, cv writing and enhancement, interview skills as well as other soft skills. Our Student Training Unit strives to support students to find internship positions by conducting fairs and open days, encourages them to apply for part time work inside the University though the Student Employment Program (SEP), as well as provide resources to assist them to find work in UAE. Our Student Exchange Unit helps students secure international paid course-related training  through the International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE). UAE is a full member of the IAESTE network and the only representative in the region.     

 

CASTO provides resources for students who are keen to develop their decision making and job search skills, and encourages them to gain self-knowledge, expand their horizons and utilize personal resources as a lifelong process. ​
