OMT and ATTAL were the two generous sponsors who helped AUT in this community oriented effort
The Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAS) at AUT participated in the 19th LAAS International Science Conference, which is an annual conference of the Lebanese Association for the Advancement of Science, with six abstracts that got accepted as two oral presentations and four poster presentations from the various departments at FAS. This major achievement is a vital step towards positioning the AUT in general and FAS in particular as a research oriented academic institution.
