Choosing to Fly: Examining Fear, Risk and Resilience with Steph Davis

Welcome to the eighth annual Winter Enrichment Program (WEP) at KAUST!

The Office of Enrichment Programs is proud to bring to you fourteen enthralling days of a unique educational experience to explore the theme “Pushing the limits: Challenging Engineering and Science”.

Renowned professors and speakers will dig into the state-of-the-art engineering achievements in all fields and focus on 21st century innovative solutions to forge a new future. Keynote lectures, workshops, seminars will enrich you with sensational engineering projects and gripping science stories. With over 70 events to choose from, there's something for every age and interest.

The new WEP Hub concept set at the University Library will be the beating heart of the WEP 2017 with daily talk show, art exhibits, creative activities, engineering challenges, and informal meeting with speakers, making the WEP even more convivial and full of surprises.

Advanced registration is required for limited seating sessions, strongly recommended and encouraged for Community Events and Keynotes. To stay up to date on all events and programs, make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Our vision at WEP would not have become reality without the huge commitment and active contribution from our programming and organizing partners.

We hope you will enjoy this unique enriching experience!
