Foreword: Preparing graduates with holistic skills for a complex and Interconnected world

Introduction

The world of work and the society in general are becoming more and more complex and interlinked, requiring our young graduates to have multi-layered skills and competencies and a well-honed ability to integrate these skills to solve every day problems.
As the leading provider of post-secondary education in the rapidly-developing United Arab Emirates, the Higher Colleges of Technology is dedicated to the preparation of our graduates to succeed in this dynamic new world order.

Towards this end, and in keeping with international best practice, the HCT uses an

planned to encourage and support the development of a number of broad ‘graduate
outcomes’ that are common across all HCT programs.
