The mission of the MIT Arab Students’ Organization lies in building cultural, academic, and industrial bridges between MIT and the Arab world. The student-led group aims to create a platform for Arab scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs to express their ideas, and a place for the MIT community to engage with the Arab world through various events and initiatives.
This spring, the ASO held its first Arab Science and Technology conference, where leaders and innovators from across the globe gathered to discuss issues relating to education, technology, and entrepreneurship in the Middle East and North Africa.
“I think it’s very useful to be able to listen to [different] perspectives and learn from their experiences,” says Safa Jabri, rising senior in mechanical engineering.
