Winter Enrichment Period

Start Date: January 11, 2015
End Date: January 22, 2015

​The Winter Enrichment Program (WEP) is a program hosted annually by KAUST. It is an academic, entrepreneurial and cultural interlude session in KAUST's academic calendar whose primary purpose is to enrich and inspire the students beyond their normal academic curriculum.                   
WEP creates a lively and engaging atmosphere, taking us away from our regular activities and bringing together KAUST speakers, as well as eminent guests from around the world. Internationally renowned attendees range from keynotes speakers, Nobel laureates, entrepreneurs, academics, as well as distinguished local and regional leaders. WEP is geared towards the University's students, KAUST community members, as well as KAUST academic and industrial partners.
The Winter Enrichment Program results from yearly selected proposals, submitted by KAUST students, faculty and the KAUST community. The WEP Committee, in charge of reviewing and selecting the proposals, is comprised of students, faculty, schoolteachers and staff representing altogether all members of the KAUST community.
There are seminars, short courses, workshops, keynote lectures, entrepreneurial events, skills related offerings, field trips, cultural and recreational activities, exhibits, and other WEP Special events such as Symposiums, Poster Session and Award Ceremonies, the Science Fun Fair.
