During my study at KCST, I had the chance to study and learn more about the field that I am passionate about. I got to know many colleagues and professors who were friendly, nice and helpful and had a passion for learning. They helped me ignite my passion for learning in different fields, such as business management. Studying at KCST made me confident and provided me with the necessary skills to be a successful engineer and CEO. KCST was indeed a unique experience.

I had joined KCST in 2016. It was the first time I started to study everything in English, and it didn’t seem easy. But with the help of my Professors, it became easy. Today, I am building and creating a whole project by myself. I am grateful for the knowledge I gained during my time at KCST
My experience at KCST was very enjoyable. When I faced difficult circumstances, everyone supported me, from the college’s President, to all the teachers and instructors. Thus, I can thankfully say I fulfilled my dreams. I became a mother and an engineer with excellent rank.
My journey at KCST was one of the most beautiful and most important stage of my life, punctuated by a lot of challenge and persistence. I am very proud to be one of the first three students to graduate from the Department of Electronics and Communications with a GPA of 3.98. I still remember the day we presented the final year project on stage and Professor Khalid Al Begain’s said, “You deserve an A grade.” Finally, to succeed at a place, you have to love being there. We love you, KCST.
As a student with special needs, it was not easy to study in a new university that had not dealt with a person with disabilities before, but all the difficulties were facilitated for me, and the support I got was professional. It was a beautiful journey full of professional academic teaching facilitated by the superb handling of the faculty and administration at the university. Thank you KCST for all the beautiful moments and memories that I will never forget.
The university experience is a distinct experience that differs in its content from other academic experiences. For me, it was an important experience as the university gave me a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to complete my university studies and obtain a bachelor’s degree in engineering. The excellent university atmosphere was a major factor in the achievement of what I have achieved. Also, the level of education and the method of explanation from the faculty members had a strong impact on my way of thinking and motivation to work hard. I am grateful and proud to be part of KCST

I’ve had a pleasant and life-defining experience at KCST, where I’ve learned more about myself and my life outside of the classroom and how to make significant life decisions and choices. I was fortunate enough to regularly push myself outside of my comfort zone, which contributed to even more amazing opportunities. Ultimately, my time at KCST provided me with the support and the tools I needed to improve my skills and offered me vital knowledge that I would not trade for anything.
My five years in KCST were the best years of my life. Sure, I faced ups and downs, but I enjoyed every experience. I tried a lot of new things from doing research to joining different competitions and clubs. In those years, I met amazing people, colleagues, lecturers, and friends. I really thank all the lecturers, workers, faculties and my friends, each one of them left something special in me that helped me to become a better version of myself every day.

KCST offers a great course/ program for computer engineering. The teachers are always helpful and welcome every question, help, and suggestion. I have developed many skills at KCST, not only from an educational standpoint but also from a personal one, the fact that KCST provides and allows the students to have clubs and societies to work in and have on the side of learning shows that they promote students' wellbeing and life skills.

In 2016, I enrolled for a degree course at the Kuwait College of Studies and Technology, where I was enrolled in computer engineering but transferred to Electronics and Communication Engineering. Managing my time and creating a balance between family, since I am a mom, job and education became my biggest challenge. However, my strong will and passion for pursuing knowledge inspired me to create a favorable balance and go to greater extents to ensure proper time management. I owe my quick adaptation to the new environments and excellent understanding of my course despite being out of school for four years to the university’s faculty for always making us feel at home and helping us build a family that made learning easier. Despite the numerous challenges I faced while juggling my different roles simultaneously, I am proud to say that I am finally living the moment I have lived to envision, a dream come true. All this would have been impossible without the aid of my dear friends who have been there for me. I am grateful for the wonderful experiences we have had together and for giving me the best years of my life. I will surely live to relive the experiences.
