Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

The RIBA has been exploring ways in which RIBA Gulf and Geberit seminars can be made available digitally to the membership across the Gulf (United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sultanate of Oman).

The RIBA is happy to be able to offer a 1-hour webinar on Designing Drainage Without Compromise with Geberit, helping you elevate your domain knowledge.

RIBA Geberit Seminar Series – Module 1: Designing Drainage Without Compromise DIN EN 12056

The 1-hour webinar series open to the entire Gulf (United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sultanate of Oman) is delivered over two days, with intervening gaps, allowing you time to reflect, revise and review. You can attend both modules in the series thus future-proofing your domain knowledge, or you can attend relevant modules only if you need a specific understanding of each topic.

This module will provide delegates with an expert level learning opportunity and provide insight on hydraulic principles of in-house drainage systems with a focus on high-rise buildings. The seminar will enable professionals to achieve better outcomes and cover the following topics:

  • The history, basics and types of drainage
  • The various options of materials and characteristics while designing drainage without compromise
  • The processes and considerations required to plan a drainage system
  • Live Q&A session

This seminar is classified as ‘General Knowledge’ and will provide delegates with a higher level of expertise through sharing practical applied knowledge and will contribute to RIBA members’ CPD points for the year.
