The camp has been one of the most valuable experiences for me so far. I had the possibility to grow personally and professionally during the camp, thanks to the time spent with excellent students from all over the world and experienced mentors. Working and interacting with the faculty group members in an extremely organized place allowed me to effectively manage my time.
I saw KAUST’s MEWC as the best place to cultivate my fascination for innovation. I am inclined to bring science and engineering into our daily lives, so MEWC’s objective of designing a gadget prototype, exposing its results and engaging with the best people in the engineering field caught my attention.
MEWC at KAUST was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The program not only allows you to work in cutting-edge facilities, and learn to address problems from different perspectives, but it also offers professional development opportunities, such as workshops and seminars, which helped me enhance my skills and knowledge in my field.
