AUK RISE Hosts Imagine Cup Kuwait Finals 2015

The Center for Research in Informatics, Sciences and Engineering (RISE) at the American University of Kuwait (AUK) announced that it will host the Microsoft Imagine Cup Kuwait Finals on April 22nd, 2015. The Imagine Cup 2015 allows students to bring their technological ambitions to fruition with the help of Microsoft resources and guidance.

Three teams from AUK will be competing in Imagine Cup this year, along with a team from the Gulf University for Science & Technology (GUST), and another from the American University of the Middle East (AUM). The winning teams will qualify for the Pan-Arab Semi-Finals to be held in Bahrain next June 2015. Microsoft Imagine Cup World Finals will be held in USA during July 2015.

Imagine Cup is broken into three tiers of competition: Games, Innovation and World Citizenship. The Games tier invites creative students to produce a game on the following platforms: Windows (PC or touchscreen), Windows Phone, Xbox Indie Games or Kinect SDK. The Innovation tier includes innovative, ground-breaking and appealing software engineered by students using Microsoft tools and technology. Lastly, the World Citizenship tier is built for solutions to global challenges - apps to help reduce world hunger, raise environmental awareness or provide better access to education, for example. The AUK teams will be presenting ideas under the category of Innovation and World Citizenship.

The Imagine Cup Kuwait Finals will take place on April 22nd at the Auditorium of the American University of Kuwait (AUK) in Salmiya. The event is open to public and will commence at 4:30pm.
