LOL! I cant believe I did that. Haha. Anyway, I'm glad that my life pursuits and goals aren't based on the judgments and opinions of an internet web forum. Smile

Still though, any input?

Do you mean the Technical Institute of Naval Studies in Dammam? If so, many of us have a great deal of experience there.

A saidi was walking along the road with a chicken. A man came along and said:"That's a nice donkey you have there".

the saidi replied: Ha!, that's not a donkey, that's a chicken".

the man said:"I'm not talking to you, I'm talking to the chicken".


A saidi was in bed making love to his wife when a furious pounding on the bedroom door stopped him. His wife said: "Quick, hide in the closet, that's my boyfriend".

The Saidi, (usually considered an Egyptian by Gulf Arabs), is the subject of jokes.

From my experiences with Saudi Naval Institute, it's run by Saidis

A true "saidi" is a uneducated country Egyptian... I doubt that you would encounter any unless you are working in construction in Saudi.

From what I have read there are a number of complaints against IGIT teaching positions related to the university.

IGIT is also recruiting for teachers in a separate department to teach at Naval bases. They are hiring for Dammam.

Everyone says that it is most likely Technical Institute for Naval Studies and that this has a really bad reputation.

But I have only seen comments about the university not anything from someone who has actually worked for IGIT in the Naval program. It could be since this is a new position there are no past employees yet anyway.

Other than asking why one wants to know or other useless sidetracking......

Anyone out there really know now what's up with IGIT Naval positions near Dammam? Experiences? Good/Bad

thanks

TINS had some good things going for it. One was that they would give you a LONO/NOC to go elsewhwre ! At one stage it seemd that half od the teachers at KFUPM had come from there !
