AURAK’s ASCE chapter president ‘Mr. Shawki Zaher’ has won the first place and will be receiving a certificate and a cash money prize. Below are the names of the competition’s winners:
First Place: Mr. Shawki Elawadi Zaher, AURAK

Congratulations to Mr. Shawki Zaher and to AURAK on this important achievement!
The ASCE student chapter and club activities are valuable for the growth and development of undergraduate engineers because they help develop teamwork, leadership, creativity, and project management skills. Civil engineering students hold elections yearly to choose their ASCE student president, secretary, treasurer, and executive committee members.
