TEDxCCE Salon at Caledonian College of Engineering

Excitement was in the air as Caledonian College hosted their first ever TEDxCCE Salon. It was a day of inspiring talks by speakers who have made their mark in the community through their contributions. The event was supported by the Dean Professor Dr Ahmed Hassan Al Balushi and sponsored by NU College of Engineering, Oman.

TEDxCCESalon was held on 18 December, 2017 from 11 am to 4 pm at the Al Hail Campus of NU College of Engineering. Invitations were through registrations. The theme for TEDxCCESalon was ‘Empowering Ideas under United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.’ TED is an international event where speakers from around the globe share their ideas in creativity and entertainment. TEDx events are independently organised events similar to TED events but on a smaller scale that take place in different communities around the world. TEDx Salon are smaller often weekly or monthly events that keeps a TEDx community engaged between regular TEDx events.

Speaking at the pre-launch session, the co-organisor Ms Prekerthi Panikar, Head- Educational & Professional Development at College of Engineering said that “It has long been felt both in the school of thinkers that there needs to be an integration between academics, global issues and agreed goals at the apex level. At a point of time when the there is acute hardships of all forms across the world, there is a need for champions to rise and show the way to a better world. We at Caledonian believe that there is a champion in each one of us who wants to spread the positivity and play their part in the development of a better world through their ideas and contributions. United Nations Millennial sustainable Goals is a promise every country has made to the upliftment of the humankind by providing the basic rights. UNDP’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals invites everyone to work together towards achieving these 17 Goals by 2030. This is where the role of individuals, their ideas, thoughts and contributions are shared through TEDx platform”. Hence, this theme blends the objective very well in an academic setting.

The Organisor Mr Muataz bin Mussallam Al Maawali, President Student Advisory Council at Caledonian College of Engineering was the Master of Ceremony and introduced the Speaker line-up. The Speaker Line-up included Ms Mariam Haji, MSc in food and nutrition; Rashid Al-Jabri, Well Engineer at Petroleum Development of Oman, Ms Nadiya Hassan- Entrepreneur and founder of Nad’s Delights, Ms Nadhira Al Hinai – Chair Women Engineers Council, Oman, Mr Marawan Maher Youssef CISCO Certified Engineer and Ableton Certified Trainer, and Ms Juhaina Al Eisri, Graduate from Michigan University.
