QNRF announces results for the 13th cycle of its Undergraduate Research Experience Program

Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) today announced the winners of its 13th Undergraduate Research Experience Program (UREP), with participation from 68 Qatari students, the highest number to date.

Over the past six years, UREP has provided more than 2,000 undergraduate students in Qatar with the opportunity to gain significant experience in team-based research collaboration with faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and other undergraduates or research staff. The program promotes learning by doing and hands on mentorship activities as effective methods for undergraduate research education.

 

Research studies link between wind and waves

For the first time, fine detail about the wind and wave conditions around the coast of Qatar has been recorded. By arranging the most sophisticated equipment available on the edge of a 500-meter pier extending into the Gulf, a research team at Texas A&M University at Qatar (TAMUQ) has collected detailed readings of air and wave currents around the peninsula. Their findings highlight a dearth of information on coastal conditions that have the potential to offer vital insights into many sectors.
