His Highness's experience in these highly-regarded fields rely on his personal experience in studying for higher degrees and his practical expertise in communicating with such reputable scientific institutions worldwide. One of the key directives of His Highness to the University of Sharjah, is to make best efforts to improve UoS' achievements in international fields.
