More than 90 companies participated, representing such diverse job fields as media, finance and research.
Dr. Todd Kent, assistant dean for academic affairs at Texas A&M at Qatar, said, “This year’s career fair is a joint effort among Education City branch campuses. The Education City Career Fair is a wonderful opportunity for our students to meet a broad base of potential employers. Texas A&M at Qatar will graduate more than 90 skilled engineers this year and we look forward to these students contributing to Qatar’s future growth and economic development.”
