Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON - By Ben Gar­cia

The Aus­tralian Col­lege of Kuwait’s (ACK) School of En­gi­neer­ing yes­ter­day held its fifth Fall/Se­mes­ter 2016 stu­dents’ grad­u­a­tion projects’ ex­hi­bi­tion at Moven­pick Ho­tel. The projects pre­sented by stu­dents at ACK have al­ways been spe­cial, as they are the re­sult of years of hard work and per­se­ver­ance.

Projects in­clude uti­liz­ing lo­cal waste ma­te­ri­als in con­crete form, construction man­age­ment study for pri­vate vil­las, restau­rant com­plexes, re­con­struc­tion of pave­ments, re­cy­cled asphalt pave­ments, re­duc­tion of pa­per con­sump­tion, re­duc­tion of elec­tric­ity us­age, water re­cov­ery at mosques, water re­cov­ery at car wash fa­cil­i­ties, re­cy­cling used oil, green vil­las, de­liv­ery ro­bots, so­lar en­ergy, etc.

Dr Mo­hamed Gaith, As­so­ciate Dean, School of En­gi­neer­ing, as­sured par­ents that the stu­dents have al­ready ac­quired soft and hard en­gi­neer­ing skills, knowl­edge and con­cepts nec­es­sary to per­form well when they leave ACK and join the work­force. “In these projects, you’ll find the work of stu­dents from civil, elec­tri­cal, me­chan­i­cal and pe­tro­leum en­gi­neer­ing. It is re­ally very im­por­tant to equip the stu­dents with com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills, lead­er­ship and team­work,” he said. ACK stu­dents suc­cess­fully pro­duced 32 unique projects. “Our stu­dents have worked very hard to reach this level and uti­lized the ac­cu­mu­lated en­gi­neer­ing skills and avail­able ed­u­ca­tional tools to broaden their knowl­edge about sub­jects,” Gaith said.
