    There are many courses which don't have exams. They have assignments and term projects.
    The university doesn't care if the student is learning; they just want their fees.

    Nothing wrong in it, Remember it's a cycle. There was a time when the west learned *a lot* from the east. Now we learn from them, cycle continues.

    Oh it’s true ?

    But for get final degree from the University diploma (Professional degree - doctorate -) ? They must succeed their award of research doctorates requiring the submission of a substantial body of original research undertaken by the candidate. This may take the form of a single thesis or dissertation, or possibly a portfolio of shorter project reports; see also thesis by publication. The submission will usually be assessed by ‘a small committee of independent examiners’ appointed by the university ? No ?

    Or they also have magic tricks…

    But let them bark.

    There is no thesis requirement for Bachelor's degree in most American universities. The people I am talking about were getting their Bachelor's degree, which is a cakewalk in most American universities (I know).

    Even for Master's degree, you can write something up.

    Only a PhD requires an assessment by a committee.

    :crazy:

    But you tell really anything ! You take us for stupids. Do you really think we spend tens of billions of dollars in scholarships university for our students who leave to study abroad (Like ‘King Abdullah Scholarships Program’ for KSA) without checking what they do on site, without selecting their education levels before the departure ? You take us for real fools. You are crazy.

    Behind your false nice speeches, you hide poorly your self-conceit - your bitterness - against us (GCC).

    Saudi Students Flood In as U.S. Reopens Door

    Keep your stupid thoughts for you. It does not interest us.

    That is PRECISELY what I am telling you.
    That I have known Saudi students on scholarships who got their homework done by others for money. I don't know which particular scholarship program they were getting money from, but it was some Saudi government program.

    This Saudi government scholarship program has been going on for at least 35 years. What is the result? Saudi Arabia continues to be utterly dependent on foreigners for just about everything.

    When the Americans needed energy independence, they perfected fracking to make shale oil extraction economcal.
    When the Israelis needed to grow crops in the desert, they perfected drip irrigation and similar technologies.
    When the Chinese and Japanese wanted to build long span bridges in hostile conditions, they perfected the technology.

    What about Saudi Arabia? Its economy depends on oil, but do the Saudis lead the world in oil exploration technology? No, they call the Americans, or the Europeans or the East Asians, so they can perfect their skills on Saudi dime.

    Saudi Arabia has been blessed with endless sunlight. Does Saudi Arabia dominate the solar power technology? Of course not! They depend on the Westerners or the East Asians to develop the technology, again on Saudi payroll.

    The Emirs of Dubai can gloat over their mile high buildings, but they have nothing to be proud of. Westerners and East Asians are developing their skills and perfecting the technology -- all paid for by GCC Arabs who could barely repair the elevators if the foreigners leave.

    You can continue to believe whatever you like and live in denial.

    The truth of my words may sting you, but it is nothing compared to what your future generations will say about your generation. Trillions of dollars in oil wealth wasted with nothing to show for it.

    @Developereo

    No offense but you are utterly ignorant. I could easily counter what you say but that would require a long discussion and I am not sure if it is worth the effort.

    I suggest that we stick to the topic.

    They come in almost all shapes, colors etc. Women have their own but this plain white one is the most common in UAE and elsewhere.

    Arab men dress. You the white long thing they wear.

    He is right to some extent, and one some points he is dead on. This is not ignorance on his part, i know it doesnt feel good to be on the other end, but those are facts.

    I don't get the hate. Sure, the work will be done by foreigners. UAE's SciTech is not ready yet to take such a large undertaking. But this is exactly the right step needed to do so. UAE will become one of the few nations on the planet to do this. Imagine the change in their culture. Emirati children will dream about building spaceships and training to be astronauts instead of burning out ferraris. This is the kind of move the transforms a nation to the next level of human progress. We should be very very excited about it.

    More or less everything he wrote about KSA is pure and utter nonsense. Vastly outdated. I am not Emirati and what the hell does he, you and others expect 1.2 million big UAE to do? Their country is doing remarkably well even if they get help from outsiders like all others did at some point. Or despite them being rich in resources.

    Anyway we are off-topic. Not interested in a long discussion. Already covered my views earlier in this thread.

    I agree. However, I believe that most of the work will be done by Emarati engineers. There are universities in the UAE that have been teaching aerospace engineering, microsystem engineering and other engineering courses to Emiratis for some time. Furthermore, there are Emarati engineers that are currently manufacturing a new satellite by themselves. Finally, the UAE has sent many Emiratis for internship at Nasa. Also, one does not need an army of engineers to be able to carry out the task of sending a probe. Space X, which started in 2002 with a very small number of engineers, has managed to develop several rockets and successfully launch them into space in a short timespan.
