While this year it was decided to make it on the national level, where the floor is open to many universities from UAE to participate in the event. This contest is an excellent opportunity for students at both graduate and undergraduate studies to present and share their research outcomes with other students from many universities in UAE.

The competition agenda was composed of 8 parallel panels for oral presentations and 4 consecutive panels for poster presentations. Which all were conducted for two days. Two panels per day were allocated for poster presentations and the rest are for oral presentations. The sessions had been separated for both graduate and undergraduate categories.
All the sessions had been organized by the theme/ field of the presentations.
The competition was held under the patronage of Eng. Anwaar Al Shimmari, the Director of the Design Department and Chief Innovation officer at the Ministry of Infrastructure Development.
The research works of the participating student teams had been evaluated by committees of faculty members from several universities based on specific criteria. The latest include many categories of (the quality of research, originality of research, quality of presentation, and technical presentation). The criteria were shared with all the participating universities one week before the competition date.
The students had presented their work either as a poster (during the poster sessions) or as oral presentation for 10 minutes. The committees (working in parallel) had discussed and evaluated the presentation and the research work for additional 5 minutes.
Faculty members from many universities at UAE were invited through their Vice Presidents for Research/Deans to be part of the evaluation committees.
