Ebrahim K. Kanoo, the diversified business conglomerate, welcomed the winners of the Ebrahim K. Kanoo Award for Engineering Excellence at its main office in Manama.

Created in partnership with the University of Bahrain’s College of Engineering, the award was won by mechanical engineering students for the best final year project at a ceremony and exhibition in the campus.

The students met with Mr. Talal Kanoo, Managing Director at Ebrahim K. Kanoo, who commended them for their significant efforts in the field of mechanical engineering in Bahrain. Mr. Kanoo stated, “The Ebrahim K. Kanoo Award for Engineering Excellence was created to highlight the important role young Bahrainis play in the field of mechanical engineering. We take pride in the efforts and commitment shown by the students and the college to foster this talent. I look forward to seeing great things from the winners and wish them continued success.”

Dr. Bader Al Mannai, Assistant Professor and Head of the Mechanical Engineering Department, lauded Ebrahim K. Kanoo’s role in growing local talent and their commitment to the university. “The private sector plays a vital role in supporting education through financial schemes or employment opportunities and Ebrahim K. Kanoo does both. We are proud to partner with such a well-established Bahraini company and are thankful for their support and their investment in the future of our students.” he added.
