Our Partners

WEST collaborates with local and international companies that are at the top of their field to bring students real-world challenges that require innovative and advanced problem solving. 


Our Project

When you join a WEST project, you will be participating in a 4-month long design project that expands your education to real-world problems, re-enforces course-related subjects, provides an application-based opportunity to apply your skills and grows your soft skills.

Throughout the project, weekly lectures on subjects pertaining to the challenge at hand are provided by industry-leaders and academic trailblazers. There are four major deliverables all students are required to complete: Proposal Report, Progress Presentation, Final Report, & Pitch Presentation.

Each project ends with a grand Showcase where students get an opportunity to network with our project partners, industry and academia. Students present their pitch presentation to a panel of judges to receive crucial feedback and celebrate four months of hard work and dedication!
