ASGC started its collaboration with Heriot-Watt University (HW), Dubai in 2012.
Since then, as part of ASGC’s Training & Development plans, ASGC introduced the Heriot Watt Master of Science programs to its employees, whereby 50% of the tuition payment is covered by the company, subject to HR & Department Head Approval.

The award includes a Recognition Letter and a monetary prize.
