KSA education institution Prince Mohammed University (PMU) has signed an agreement with IT services provider Al-Falak Electronic Equipment & Supplies to provide it with learning technology from SAS at its Al-Khobar campus.

Under the terms of the agreement, Al-Falak will assist in delivering SAS software and infrastructure and provide additional post-implementation services to PMU.

Al-Falak’s CEO Ahmed Ashadawi commented: “Our partner SAS has vast experience in successfully integrating technology into academic programs and will thus contribute significantly to exposing students to the use of the state of the art technologies in their curriculum and make them market ready. The system we will implement has the potential to significantly enhance the learning curve and career opportunities of both students and educators.”

“Higher educational institutions in Saudi Arabia and the entire Arab World face increasing pressure to produce students who have sufficient real-world training to meet strict industry demand for technological skills and business competence. We thus need to use the latest methods and technologies to ensure that the new generation of Saudi nationals is fully prepared to assume key positions in both the public and private sectors and make critical decisions,” added PMU Rector Dr. Issa Al Ansari.
