This webinar will describe how over 60,000,000 minutes of programs has been delivered online since HCT’s campuses were closed. It will also give the participants a peak into what the future will look like for HCT.


Dr. Alex Zahavich, is the Chief Academic Officer (CAO) for the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT), the UAE’s leading applied education institution, and founder of the Global Applied Education Network (GAEN). He is responsible for implementing HCT 4.0, including the delivery of all of HCT’s academic programs, and applied research and entrepreneurship activities across the UAE.
