|The School of Engineering at the Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) scored record numbers with the winter 2017/2018 internship work term. 125 students were placed with 31 employers over the course of the winter break and thrived with the 150 hour work experience that earned many certificates of achievement.
Joumana Tasse, Internship Coordinator at ACK said “I am grateful for the continuous support of local employers who commit their time and expertise to our Engineering students. The internship experience enables our students to seamlessly bridge their academic knowledge into a work place setting. This promotes growth, maturity and confidence.”
Dr. Mohammed Abdul-Nibi, Acting Dean at the School of Engineering, refers to Amit Kalantri’s famous quote “Life is not only about acquiring knowledge, it is about applying knowledge” to best describe the core objectives of the internship program.
ACK continues to support enriching the student experience and is currently underway for its next internship work term that will take place in the summer of 2018.
