Due to the nature of the real estate business, Nayef has been exposed to the life cycle of projects; from the ideation stage, validation, feasibility, design, and all the way to the implementation.

Nayef discovered his passion toward education in 2008, When he founded the “Life is Engineering” initiative with a group of his colleagues in Qatar University. The initiative was driven by the fact that there was a huge drop in the number of male students doing the college of engineering at Qatar University. As a result, the initiative was built around building a racing car from scratch and driving it on the Lusail International Circuit. The journey took 24 students through the process of understanding the science and engineering behind the manufacturing and the design of the real car. Today, we are witnessing the 10th cycle of the program and currently, the program was able to attract more than 290 Qatari male students to an immersive educational experience, helping them to consider the engineering field as a future field of study.
