  • 4. Overview Established by Texas A&M University of the United States in 2003, Texas A&M University at Qatar offers worldfamous engineering, arts and science programmes to talented international students from 30 countries at their Qatar Foundation campus in Doha. With just under 600 students and 90 faculty members at any given time, significant interest from the alma mater at the College Station, Texas, and a history of world-class publishing, the Qatar branch was looking for a means to communicate with its staff, students and alumni. talktoswitch.com ~ 02 ~
  • 5. Enriching Qatar’s greatest natural resource.
  • 6. The Challenge A highly diverse cultural mix among students, a clear mandate for social outreach among all ‘Aggie’ alumni, and the need to speak directly to a new generation of Arab engineers and chemists, meant that effective bi-lingual communication with international relevance was key to turning their existing magazine, The Aggie Platform, into a must-read for anyone related to, or interested in, the Texas-Doha experiment. talktoswitch.com ~ 03 ~
  • 7. Passionate students.
  • 8. The Solution The existing magazine was taken under the Switch microscope in 2007 and re-imagined to include all of these audiences, requiring extensive review, improved content, expert translation and beautiful layout. Working within Texas’ extremely detailed communications team and the brand guidelines they live by, we carefully created a magazine that appeals to a broad audience in the Middle East and the United States, in both Arabic and English. The introduction of varied designs, photo essays and infographics helped bring the publication to life, resulting in a magazine that can speak to graduate students as easily as it can to academics. talktoswitch.com ~ 04 ~
  • 9. Engineering a bright future.
  • 10. The Result Widely considered a must read by the college body, The Aggie Platform is now a successful way to bring together on-campus news and opinion from the students and faculty. A total of 4,000 copies are distributed quarterly to stakeholders in Qatar and the United States, and the publication has been so well received that the university has asked Switch to help produce a range of other titles, including their Annual Reports for the past four years, a 10-year Forward Strategy Book (2011) and a 2012 Research Yearbook. talktoswitch.com ~ 05 ~
  • 11. A living testament to the power of collaboration.
