The Alumni and Career Placement Center at ACK hosted the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) Exhibition in the Aviation Hangar, Building 6 from November 23-24, 2016. It was the first and largest KOC Exhibition at any educational institution in Kuwait.
The Opening Ceremony was attended by ACK Chairman, Mr. Abdullah Al-Sharhan, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of KOC, Mr. Menahi Al-Anzi, as well as many VIPs from KOC.
The Exhibition was a great success and beyond expectations. ACK students benefited greatly from being able to speak with KOC representatives from 20 different departments that each had information booths. As a result, students gathered valuable information to help with their future career decisions as well as gaining ideas for their graduation projects and generally becoming more familiar with KOC. Most importantly, students obtained direct contacts with KOC staff members.
ACK faculty members also appreciated the opportunity to establish links with KOC staff for future collaboration and workshops.
Mr. Mohammad Mustafa Abbas, Senior Geologist in the Field Development West Kuwait at KOC commented that it was beneficial to have KOC as the sole exhibitor in this exhibition. He was very impressed by the positive feedback he received from students and faculty.
This event was publicised in the following newspapers: Al Anba, Al Jarida, Al Qabas, Al Rai, Kuwait Times, and Al Seyassah. An interview has also been broadcasted on Kuwait TV.
Below are some photos from the event and attached is a Video that KOC has posted on their Instagram.
