UoS Alumni Association revealed its latest electronic services, showcased by its President, Eng. Ahmad Al Altunaiji. The new smart application provides a distinguished group of electronic services to UoS' alumni such as, updating graduates' information, job opportunities service, voluntary work, alumni's rostrum, graduates affairs, brainstorming, alumni membership card and other privileges.
Her Excellency Khawla Abdul Rahman Al Mulla congratulated the University of Sharjah for launching its voluntary program in information technology, which is considered a strong addition and initiative by UoS to motivate volunteers to share their experience, return the favor to their university, contribute to the community service, and establish databases for all volunteers. Dr. Salah Taher asserted that UoS will contribute within the events of "Year of Giving" in launching a platform for voluntary work. This groundbreaking idea that was adopted by UoS, will be a model for providing social and voluntary services, and the core to even bigger initiatives that serve the local and international community.
