Student Success – Davos Summit

In the Spring vacation The World Economic Forum (through their Global Shapers initiative in Riyadh) organised a “Hack-a-thon”, which is a contest where University students have three days to successfully complete a prototype of their idea – the theme being “Smart Riyadh”

We are proud to announce that the FIRST PRIZE WINNER was Hamad Hani AlDraye a 3rd Year Medical Student from the College of Medicine.

To quote Hamad “the success of the student comes from the support and appreciation of the Dean and faculty of Alfaisal. Alfaisal has always aimed to cause impact worldwide and now Alfaisal has reached Davos!”
