Student Testimonials

The SSI program was a very enriching experience. I enjoyed every aspect of it! All the events and seminars were well organized. I am also very happy that I met many amazing people that I am glad to call friends.

Yara Banda, Electrical and Computer Engineering, King Abdulaziz University

The SSI program is designed to help you discover research and show you how research is done. As a student, you want to find new things to experiment with and learn from experts. That is what SSI will give you! I would like to join SSI again because I know that I will learn new interesting things every time.

Abdulelah Alkesaiberi, Computer Science, King Abdulaziz University

The SSI program is the best program I took part in. It was a rich experience, the kind of experience that teaches you something about yourself. At the end of the program, I learned the most valuable thing about myself: what I want to do in my life, not just academically but my personal goals, too.

Abdulaziz Almutlaq, Statistics, KAUST

My internship at KAUST was a very fruitful and enriching experience. It broadened my understanding of science applications, engineering concepts, and research methodology. Publishing a high-quality research paper at the IEEE 90th Vehicle Technology Conference was a great achievement.
