Danat offers university students internship

MANAMA, September 25, 2022

The Bahrain Institute for Pearls and Gemstones (Danat), hosted six students from the College of Science at the University of Bahrain for a two-month summer internship programme.
This initiative is in line with Danat’s commitment to supporting Bahraini youth, building their capacities, enhancing their skills, and introducing them to various professional opportunities in the gemology field.
Danat organised a comprehensive and integrated training programme, which began with theoretical lectures on pearls and oysters covering their formation process, a study of their environment, and the extraction process. The students were also given the opportunity to visit the field to observe the different types of oysters, search for pearls and practice extraction. Lastly, the trainees underwent a two-week training course on the different methods of pearl testing using the latest international technologies found in the Danat laboratory.
During their placement in Danat’s Research Department, and under the supervision of Danat’s Research Manager Dr Reem Al Mealla, the students were able to observe the efforts of the qualified research team in gathering data related to the observation of oyster specimens. The students gained practical knowledge related to the different methods and skills used in collecting data related to pearl oysters and the surrounding ecosystems, a statement said. 
Danat Chief Executive Officer Noora Jamsheer explained that this internship falls within the framework of an ambitious programme designed by the University of Bahrain to enhance students’ knowledge of pearls and precious stones and encourage them to enter this vital field through integrating them into Danat’s programmes, courses and workshops.
Jamsheer commended the students on their commitment to attending the training programme, their ability to grasp the specialiased vocabulary, and their acquisition of industry knowledge and skills. -TradeArabia News Service
