Scopus is the largest database of peer-reviewed literature, encompassing scientific journals, books, and conference publications. The extensive global scholarship indexed in Scopus includes research in science, arts and humanities, social sciences, medicine, and technology. A high ranking in Scopus is understood by many to be one of the top indicators of excellence in research worldwide.
AURAK is a public non-profit, independent, coeducational institution of higher education, which provides an integrated North American-style education. It is accredited by the Ministry of Education in the UAE and offers twenty-two undergraduate and graduate programs across a wide range of disciplines. In September 2017 AURAK stood at the 24th position out of 98 institutions with Scopus affiliations in the UAE, with 249 Scopus publications. Within a period of one year there has been a 62 percent increase in Scopus publications with the 2018 ranking, with AURAK climbing the competitive ladder to the twelfth slot out of 103 institutions, and with the faculty publishing 403 Scopus documents. With its prodigious rate of quality publications, AURAK has risen higher in the rankings even with increased numbers of competitors in the field.
The Provost, Professor Stephen Wilhite, observed that faculty engagement in research is fundamental the university’s achievement of its mission to exemplify the highest standards of teaching and research. “As accomplished researchers, faculty members model for their student’s active engagement in advancing knowledge in their discipline.”
AURAK President, Professor Hassan Al Alkim, is elated with the hard work and progress of his faculty, “This type of results supports our claim that our faculty is not only certified, but is comprised of highly qualified professionals that are on the forefront of contemporary research and that our institution is indeed highly competitive among the leading Arabic institutions in the UAE. Not only did our institution improve its status from last year, but it did so even in a broader, more competitive atmosphere. Our students are receiving a first-rate education from first-rate professors who are highly active in the academic world of research and on the cutting edge of innovative ideas.”

Transphorm Strengthens 900 V GaN Portfolio with Second FET25.6.2019 13:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding
Transphorm Inc.—the leader in the design and manufacturing of the highest reliability high-voltage (HV) Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors—today introduced its second 900 V FET, the Gen III TP90H050WS, enhancing the industry’s only 900 V GaN product line. These devices now enable three-phase industrial systems and higher voltage automotive electronics to leverage GaN’s speed, efficiency and power density. Further, the new FET’s platform is based on Transphorm’s 650 V predecessor, the only JEDEC- and AEC-Q101-qualified HV GaN technology. As such, system developers can design with confidence in its quality and reliability. The TP90H050WS has a typical on-resistance of 50 mOhm with a 1000 V transient rating, offered in a standard TO-247 package. The TP90H050WS can reach power levels of 8 kW in a typical half bridge while maintaining greater than 99 percent efficiencies. Its figures of merit for Ron*Qoss (resonant switching topologies) and Ron*Qrr (hard switching bridge topologies) are t

This significantly raises the bar on security and information governance for organizations operating in this digital, mobile and social era. In today’s fast-paced world, threats come at light speed – from every angle. Leading organizations must set increasingly higher standards to protect against cyber attacks and leaks, while at the same time work collaboratively with more outside parties. Even competent leaders can have blind spots when it comes to the handling of highly sensitive files, specifically in preparation for a board meeting, sharing documents haphaza
