AUK Hosts a Talk by Microsoft

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the American University of Kuwait (AUK), along with the American Business Council of Kuwait (ABCK) and the AUK-IEEE Student Branch co-organized a seminar entitled "Public Cloud and Virtual Reality", which comes as part of the Electrical & Computer Engineering Seminar Series. ECE invited Mr. Mohammed Zayed, a Microsoft Cloud Solutions Specialist, and Mr. Mohammed Derbashi, a Software Architect and consultant, both representing Microsoft Kuwait, as the keynote speakers for the seminar. Mr. Zayed discussed innovative solutions that could be utilized to enhance the workplace productivity and set the stage for a transformational future, while Mr. Derbashi discussed the development of web applications using MS Azure, a Microsoft cloud computing platform for building, deploying and managing applications and services.

Dr. Juliet Dinkha, Associate Professor of Psychology at AUK, and ABCK board member, explained that ABCK supports better awareness of American businesses, products, and services in Kuwait. The collaboration of AUK/ECE with the ABCK forum enhances the students' knowledge on education products and today's technology. ABCK seeks to proactively promote an understanding of the challenges and issues that face American business interests operating abroad.

Dr. Detlef Hummes, the ECESS 2015 coordinator, stressed that the seminar series in the ECE department continues to provide excellent learning experiences to professionals and students. ECESS focuses on providing an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility, and the impact of engineering solutions in the global, economic, environmental and societal contexts.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering strives to provide high-quality engineering education centered around the key principles of liberal arts, specifically, lifelong-learning, critical thinking, and effective communication. The department prepares students to become successful engineers, and contribute effectively to their professions and community.
