What a great experience! The Global Grad Show at Dubai Design Week took place from the 24th – 29th of October 2016 in Dubai, attracting over 50 Universities from 30 different countries. The show has grown to become the world’s biggest graduate student gathering showcasing world-class schools graduate projects. This year KAUST was one of the seven schools from the region showcasing innovative works that could shape the future with their designs of tomorrow and game-changing ideas.
From the choice of accommodation to the actual show the innovative and creative vibe was everywhere at Dubai Design Week.
The common theme around the exhibition was mainly solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems, products that will have a great impact on the world and provide a higher quality of life. The exhibition revolved around 3 main themes:
