Empowering Kuwaiti students with STEM and Robotic Lessons

To further strengthen efforts towards digitalization especially in the area of robotics ALSAYER is partnering with Computer Science Department at College of Science, Kuwait University (CS@KU) for Kuwait National Robotics Competition 2024 scheduled on 2 – 3 March 2024 at Kuwait University Campus, Al-Shadadiya


Such challenging contest aims to engage students from the intermediate school to the university level to improve their digital capabilities and go beyond it to enhance their creativity and work-life skills. To make this more significant, winning teams will represent the State of Kuwait and compete in the global competition which will be held in the United States of America at the end of April 2024.


It is worth noting that this event is the result of cooperation and joint efforts between Kuwait University - College of Science, represented by the Computer Science Department, and the Ministry of Education, represented by the General Technical Guidance for Computers and ALSAYER Group who foresee inclusive learning, people development and effective partnership for a common goal. From February to March 2024, participants will experience intense learning sessions, and experienced professional mentors to lend their time and talents to prepare each team.

The Kuwait National Robotics Competition is organized into three distinct levels, each designed to target different age groups and comes with a special set of rules and challenges, to ensure a distinctive and enriching experience for all participants:

-Intermediate level: Focus on the basic concepts of robotics and programming and encourages young minds to explore and innovate.

-High School Level: A platform for more complex challenges, pushing the boundaries of creativity, technical skill, and teamwork.

-Undergraduate level: A field for advanced robotics, where theoretical knowledge meets practical application.




The Acting Head of the Computer Science Department, Dr. Hussein Al-Mahri informed that the Department of Computer Science at Kuwait University embraces scientific innovation in various fields of technology and artificial intelligence with the support of qualified academic staff who have experience in this field. and by enrolling distinguished students with caliber to pursue technology careers. CS@KU organizes the Kuwait Robotics Competition as a commitment to enhance skills in the field of artificial intelligence for computer science students and for our young generation. And this is in line with the Kuwait vision of accelerating social growth towards an advanced knowledge economy and building resilient communities, Al Mahri added.


Dr.Noura Al-Jeri, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the competition, emphasized the fundamental role of the Computer Science Department in developing future generations of innovative technicians in cooperation with our partners from the government and private sectors. This competition highlights the importance of linking theoretical concepts and practical applications in computer science, to enable students to explore their potential and contribute for effective solutions. We aim to reduce the gap between academic education and industry requirements to ensure our labor markets especially future generations is potential enough to support and lead the future of technology and innovation.

Engineer Nehad Al-Haj Ali, General Manager – Corporate Excellence at ALSAYER, praised the Kuwait National Robotics Competition and its mission to develop the creative and digital skills of young students.
