The IECP celebrated the end of another semester at the Fall 2018 Awards Ceremony on Thursday, December 6 after the last day of classes. Students were recognized for outstanding attendance, university acceptance and outstanding poster presentations. The IECP congratulates Ali Esmail, Abdulaziz Ali, and Husain Alattar who will move on to Penn State as undergraduate students in the College of Engineering. In addition, we wish the best to Rawan Almakinah who will begin her graduate studies at the Virginia Commonwealth University.
The event was also an opportunity to recognize the hard work of the Royal Saudi Navy students in our program. These students in particular dedicate many hours a week to classes and studies as they prepare to be able to train with the U.S. military in Pensacola, Florida.
At the end of the Awards Ceremony event, three speakers delivered speeches commemorating their time at the IECP before the concluding photo slideshow was presented. Of course, a few selfies were taken when it was time to say goodbye.
Mother nature had other plans this semester for the traditional group photo at Old Main. Due to snow on November 15 and 16, Penn State’s campus closed, and as a result, the IECP had to reschedule its photo. Out of convenience, the fall 2018 photo was shot on the steps of our beloved Wagner Building, where most of IECP classes are held. It was a chilly day, for certain, but students and faculty had fun hamming it up for the camera man.
The IECP wishes everyone a happy break, and we look forward to seeing you in the new year! To those of you moving on, we wish you the best and hope you keep us updated on all your new adventures!
