Development of Nano filter using Moringa Oliefera Nanoparticles for enhancing the efficacy of water filtration.
Project grant: 50,000AED from Expo 2020 Dubai.
Hydrobeats focuses on enhancing the region’s water quality through the purification of contaminated water. As part of the project, they developed a prototype for nano-filtration to filter heavy metal ions (chromium, lead, arsenic and copper) along with several salts from water; therefore decreasing the toxicity in the water.
The product, when ready, will be an alternate sustainable and biodegradable approach to the traditional method used for water filtration. The prototype that was built focuses on filtering the available industrial water and enhancing the quality by increasing the accessibility through the purification of contaminated water.
Developed the prototype for nano-filtration to filter heavy metal ions (chromium, lead, arsenic and copper) along with several salts from water; therefore, decreasing the toxicity, total dissolved solids and salinity of the water.
The product is an alternative to traditional methods based on eco-friendly, sustainable and biodegradable approach. The novel idea gives insight to a new way of filtration which combines a vegetable seed and 21st century technology-Nanotechnology.
Furthermore, the research work has been continued by planting 200 sapling of Moringa in Amity University Dubai hostel premises.
Students of BTech Nanotechnology are involved in the research initiative of utilizing various parts of Moringa Oliefera plant like seed, leaves, and stem for the development of nanoparticles.
The formed nanoparticles are characterized with the aid of highly equipped lab facilities at Amity University Dubai to obtain the size analysis using DLS, UV absorption using UV Spectrophotometer, functional group analysis using FTIR, 3D analysis using AFM.
BAITYKOOL Living Lab – “BaityKool- living: species live in harmony”
‘BaityKool’ is a research platform dedicated to ecological sustainable housing in arid climates. Powered by a solar photovoltaic system integrated into the façade and on a mobile pergola, the 90 m2 prototype was designed and built by a joint team of architecture and engineering students from the University of Bordeaux, Amity University Dubai and Al Najah University.
This project was the winner for several awards at the 1st Solar-Decathlon Middle-East competition (Dubai-2018) and demonstrated the excellence of French design and technology for sustainable housing in the UAE context.
In 2021, BaityKool was transferred and reassembled inside the Sustainable City in Dubai. The Baitykool prototype is functioning as living lab at Sustainable City Dubai till-date.
Experimentation work is in progress in collaboration with researchers and Ph.D. scholars from the University of Bordeaux and the research team from the SEE Institute TSC. Since September 2021, this research prototype is managed as a living lab to test various technologies which are new to UAE such as aquaponics to produce food, radiative sky cooling as-well-as other systems.
With the help of BaityKool lab, sustainable living is being integrated within the students’ living communities as participants in this workshop to gain knowledge on innovative solutions for sustainable, healthy urban living that includes food-to-energy and zero-energy housing.
LESOLARIUM – Purification, Innovation and Conservation.
Project Grant: AED 164,000 by EXPO LIVE UIP Grantees, UAE
LESOLARIUM has been developed as a sustainable solution of recycling mosque ablution water at the point of generation, as wastewater and generating value from this recycled water.
On an average, a Muslim person uses approximately 1.2 liters of water for ablution per prayer, which is six litres of water, per person, per day.
The project’s research goal was to devise a mechanism to segregate low contaminated ablution water at the mosque and treat the wastewater at the point of generation. This system helped in saving energy by reducing the water treatment load at the treatment plant and recycling the water, giving additional utility for primary purposes in the urban context of UAE.
The objectives included reduction in the quantity of grey water entering the sewage treatment plant and creating localized water filtration systems to reuse this water for activities resulting in cost-savings of water. The project envisaged the development of cost effective water filtration units in achieving results of portable water and creating a self-sustaining filtration system that could be solar-powered.
The project was proposed to generate awareness of water saving measures as the way forward amongst the communities in Dubai, UAE and achieving energy saving as-well-as financial benefits with the reuse of filtered water.
The innovation built into LESOLARIUM was generating value out of wasted ablution water at the point of generation, with reuse of this recycled water at the same location by generating cost-saving measures in the purchase of fresh water for varied activities including flushing, hydroponics, aquaponics chilled water cooling and other areas.
Project benefits included saving of water, energy and money for the purchase of fresh potable water for certain human use and giving a second life to grey water with treatment unit that recycles water to potable quality as accepted by Dubai Municipality standards; thus creating a sustainable solution with use of renewable energy and low waste generation.
Research Project: Prediction of Internal Erosion Rate Index Based on the Initial Physical Properties of Soils
Sponsored by the American University of Sharjah, this project studied the internal erosion of any hydraulic structure, especially in earth fill dams to be considered as one of the most severe phenomena of failure.
It includes different processes that result in a complete distress within the body of structure as in-case of earth fill dam, dikes and levees or affect the foundation that results in complete failure of the structure. It is generally initiated when seepage forces are greater than internal frictional resistance forces of soils.
At this stage, seepage forces of water generated in the upstream of hydraulic earth structures erodes soil particles within the structure and transports towards downstream. The main objective of this study was to investigate and evaluate the soil physical properties that affect the internal erosion of soil.
This investigation collected data to understand the mechanism of soil internal erosion failure and the factors influencing the distress in hydraulic structures. The collected data was be used to develop a correlation between soil internal erosion and initial physical properties of the soil that helps the geotechnical engineer to select the best type soils for any hydraulic structure such as earth fill dam and embankment.
In addition, these correlations will predict the behavior of the soil and soil stability against internal erosion phenomena without conducting time-consuming standard erosion test. The outcomes of this research has a direct application especially in the local region since UAE has experienced heavy rain fall in the last decades and new earth fill dams have been constructed in many areas of the country.

Innovative pedagogy forms the premise of teaching and learning in the media program. A number innovative practices have been used for course delivery.
Mental Health campaign: –“Finding Hope At Home,” A Multimedia Campaign
During the pandemic, youngsters were overwhelmed by the lockdown and sudden shift from on-campus to online learning. The classes had primarily become one-way learning, students lost interest in theory-based lectures, and active interaction between faculty and students started declining. On the other end, it was equally challenging for the faculty to deliver lectures on creative subjects, which otherwise involved students’ participation.
For the same reasons and to add value to their overall learning experience during such hard times, the Media department executed a multimedia campaign under the mentorship and guidance of the advertising faculty, Ms. Seema Sangra.
The entire campaign was based on primary research. About 600 people in the students’ age group were contacted via email and survey monkey to identify the most pressing concern during the lockdown. Based on the feedback of 500+ respondents from 21 UAE-based universities, a multimedia campaign on mental health was conceptualized and executed (online) whereby each student contributed towards the project. The campaign was launched on 24th June 2020.
