KAUST GeoQuiz Team Wins Third Place!

​Congratulations to the KAUST EAGE (European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers) student chapter on their success in the annual online Geo-Quiz!

The KAUST team; consisting of four students Ahmed Saad (ANPERC), Ayrat Abdullin (ErSE), Oleg Ovcharenko (ErSE), and Dias Urozayev (ErSE) won 3rd place in this competition and qualified for free travel grants to EAGE’s annual conference and exhibition in June in Paris, France.

The team competed against 38 other chapters from around the world; the quiz counts several rounds with questions related to different fields in the geoscience industry and students have to deal with questions relating to geology, petroleum geoscience, geophysics, petrophysics and drilling.  The level of questions get more difficult as they advance.

To be successful students not only put their knowledge and skills in their particular field to the test but must also be able to work collaboratively as a team.

Congratulations to these students for their hard work, dedication and success!
