This year’s Enrichment in the Fall program ‘Designing Tomorrow’ provides an opportunity to interact and reflect on current developments that will transform our lives in the future.

We welcome to KAUST creative minds from around the world to inspire you with the transformative power of design. They will share with us some of the most outstanding success stories of design, and also failure as part of the process.

Shaping Tomorrow

Design builds on new knowledge and innovation to transform, sometimes in radical ways, our lives. Designers imagine not only how the object will serve the function, but also the way the user experience can be optimized depending on our culture, sensitivity, and individual lifestyles. Doing so, design is at the cross over of technological breakthrough and society changes. 

Open up your mind to inspiration and surprise with unexpected powerful ideas that will spark your imagination and encourage you to contribute to the designs that will shape our tomorrow. 

This Program is chaired by Gilles Lubineau, Professor of mechanical engineering at KAUST,  and led by Marie-Laure Boulot, Manager of the Enrichment Office. 

 

The KAUST Enrichment Programs are educational programs open to all members of the KAUST community and invited guests.

Keynote lectures, exhibitions, personal and professional development events, as well as cultural, academic, and entrepreneurial events, will create inspiring and entertaining opportunities.

There is something for everyone!

Make sure you follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram to stay tuned!
