Abstract Qatar's Industry is needing Qatari graduate professionals to lead it Support by industry for higher education for the next generation of professionals should be regarded as an investment in human resources. The College of Engineering of the University of Qatar is considering the development of an Advanced Engineering Degree programme for graduates who hold BSc degrees in engineering or related fields. Each degree will be a conversion course and give the graduates the technical essentials, including project management and project economics skills, for a position that requires management decision-making responsibilities by local industry. The degree itself is not the goal but the demonstration of enhanced Skills. The programme will be a one-year full time course. The programme requires strong support from Qatar's industries, both in developing course content and identifying students, tutors and mentors. Importantly, a Joint Industry-Academic Consultative Committees (JIAAC) would decide the programmes and subject matter of each course. This paper describes the general programme, the JIAAC input and an implementation plan. A typical programme is given, that for Petroleum Engineering, but any other course would follow the same plan.en_US
