The event, which featured projects from several schools, concluded in a triumphant win for Cadmous College with their project "City 2.0: Unveiling the Future of Smart and Sustainable Urban Living".

The project was part of a competition that saw innovative entries from numerous participating schools, but it was "City 2.0" that stood out for its comprehensive approach and practical applications in creating smarter, more sustainable cities.

The winners were awarded a 70% scholarship to Phoenicia University, in recognition of their solution-oriented thinking and potential to contribute to technological advancements in urban development.

The judging panel included esteemed faculty members, Dr. Majeda Sharafeddine, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Ahmad Hijazi, Dean of the College of Business, and Dr. Zahi Abdul Sater, Dean of the College of Public Health, who were tasked with the careful selection of the top projects.
