5th Edition of the Annual Winter Enrichment Program will be held from 11th to 29th January, 2013

This year saw a total of more than 170 different events take place over a three week period, including keynote lectures, academic lectures and courses, cultural events, recreation events, workshops, exhibitions, skills training and field trips. Over 2000 participants took part and benefitted from the exciting and diverse program of events, enriching, inspiring and broadening their horizons. 

WEP's mission is to enrich and to inspire and broaden students' and the community's experience at KAUST with events and projects beyond the traditional academic curriculum. 
As a direct result of KAUST community's proposals, distinguished speakers and experts from around the world, the region, and our own University are invited to contribute to this program to have our intellectual horizons enlarged and our collective imaginations stretched.
I would like to thank you all the WEP supporters for your participation and contribution towards making it a huge success in this fourth year of the program.
