Winter Enrichment Program (WEP) 2016 Highlights
Each year, KAUST runs exciting enrichment programs in the fall, winter and spring. These one and two-week programs are open to all students, faculty and community members and feature a wide variety of engaging events.
From science and technology lectures and workshops to arts, sports and community activities, our enrichment programs offer a range of inspiring experiences for everyone at KAUST.
Beginning with a very special must-see performance on January 9 and wrapping up on January 22, the 2016 Winter Enrichment Program features over one hundred events that explore climate change and sustainability.
WEP 2016 features many highlights, including a range of keynote lectures on topics ranging from science in Hollywood films to polar exploration and the future of the energy industry. Special theme days will focus on climate change, the polar regions and the future of food, fuel and living.
Our chair for WEP 2016 is Prof. Mark Tester, Associate Director of the Center of Desert Agriculture at KAUST.
