AUK participated in the 4th Kuwait Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM-KCPC 2016), which was held at Arab Open University (AOU) - Kuwait, on October 13th and 15th, 2016. The contest provides an excellent opportunity for students to demonstrate their skills in programming and problem-solving, in addition to meeting fellow students from other academic institutions. The contest fosters creativity, teamwork, and enables students to test their ability to perform under pressure.

This year, 24 teams coming from the American University of Kuwait, Australian College of Kuwait, Gulf University for Science & Technology, Arab Open University, and Kuwait University, participated in the contest. Two teams from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at AUK won the fourth and fifth places, which qualified them to go for the next regional round of the Arab Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM-ACPC 2016) that will be hosted by the Arab Academy for Science and Technology (AAST) which will be held at Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, from 11th to 14th November, 2016.

"Innovation" team, the 4th place winner, consisted of engineering students - Omar Khalil, Marwa Kandil, and Shahad Al-Mousa; while "Syndicate" team, that placed 5th consisted of engineering students - Ali Kelkawi, Batool Hasan, and Yara Al-Quorashy. AUK will sponsor the two teams during the ACM-ACPC.

The teams were supervised and coached by AUK Electrical and Computer Engineering professors Mounib Khanafer and Mohammed El-Abd, who were also chosen to be members of the Steering Committee for future KCPCs.
