Winter Enrichment Program (WEP)

The Winter Enrichment Program (WEP) is a graduation requirement for all students (M.Sc. and Ph.D.). All students must satisfactorily complete the WEP requirement for credit at least once during their studies at KAUST.

WEP is a two-week program entirely designed and produced by KAUST and takes place during an interlude in the academic semester in January when courses are not offered. WEP includes keynote lecture series, field trips, exhibitions, science fairs, opening nights, and final galas. The program hosts KAUST speakers, eminent international guest speakers, Nobel Laureates, entrepreneurs, academics, as well as distinguished local and regional leaders and decision-makers.
