ACK’s Gaith: Equipping students with communication, leadership and teamwork skills
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.
