Sharjah: With a slew of new-age career options transforming the world of work at an unprecedented speed and scale, an upcoming education fair is promising students a big opportunity to explore higher education programmes that prepare them for the future.


Showcasing higher education programmes in some of the most sought-after disciplines as well as career-oriented professional courses, the 15th International Education Show 2019 will be held at Expo Centre Sharjah from January 30 to Feb 1.


“While disciplines like engineering, business, IT and medical sciences still have the best chances of employment in the UAE and the region, new-age career options are finding takers in large numbers. Being a well-established higher education fair that hosts leading educational institutions from across the globe, the International Education Show offers students an excellent opportunity to meet university representatives and obtain the right information they are looking for,” said H.E. Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, CEO, Expo Centre Sharjah, ahead of the three-day higher education fair.


Acknowledging this demand, several educational institutions taking part at IES 2019 will be prepared to receive queries on programmes that prepare students for careers in fields such as cloud computing, data science, AR & VR, block chain, artificial intelligence, ethical hacking, IoT, e-retail, app development and social media management, among others.


Besides, the show will also feature a career counselling session on ‘New-age careers and education options in India after grade 12’ by Mr Prikshit Dhanda, India's leading career coach. The session will be held in association with AFAIRS Exhibitions & Media, which is hosting the concurrent Great India Education Fair.
