IIE Kuwait University student chapter holds "Fiesta" event!  

The biggest ever event in the college of engineering at Kuwait University was organized by IIE's Kuwait University student chapter and was a huge success!

Students and non-students attended and enjoyed fun activities that included a live performance comedy play and fun competitions(hosted by a popular radio person), treasure hunt, haunted house, playing cards, video game competition, soccer tournament for the guys, photo shoot, girls salon, outdoor movie. The event had a street style theme. The chapter covered outdoor floor of the college with specially designed boards that were handmade by the chapter and also had a graffiti artist to draw a painting for the stage's background.  
IIE Kuwait Chapter is working hard for IIE and for the industrial engineering profession
