We are working with the United Nations University (UNU) to establish a Water Virtual Learning Centre in Dubai. The center is to provide UNU programs to serve the Middle East Region. King Fahad University for Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) will provide technical support and supervision to meet UNU standards.
The first program Bushnak Academy will offer, in co-operation with UNU and KFUPM, is a continuing education diploma in Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). This diploma is designed for those working in the water sector with the need to update and expand their knowledge about IWRM. Initial Agreement has been reached with UNU and KFUPM to develop another diploma in Desalination & Water Reuse.
Bushnak Academy organizes specialized seminars and workshops in Jeddah, Dubai, Bahrain and other major cities in the region. Such events are facilitated by international experts with practical experience. They provide an excellent learning and discovery experience to all professionals working in the fields of water, environment and energy.
