The British University of Bahrain is proud to announce that two of our ICT College students will participate in the 3rd Smart Cities Virtual Symposium. This prestigious event will be a virtual event this year, due to the COVID restrictions, organised by the University of Bahrain. As in previous years, the event is in conjunction with The Institution of Engineering and Technology – IET.

During the event, the two BUB students will deliver two research papers. This research was accomplished under the supervision of our Cyber Security expert and BUB ICT College lecturer – Dr Al-Hamami.
