E-Week 2012

The Student Engineer’s Council (SEC) of Texas A&M kicked off its annual Engineer’s Week, held at the start of every fall semester. This is the SEC’s forth E-Week, this year bigger and better with events on each week day lasting until this past Thursday.





E-Week started with the  E-Olympics on Sunday the 16th September, organized by Omer Khan, where teams of six competed in a mixture of sports and trivia related challenges and puzzles. From a questionnaire quiz, blind obstacle course, and even a hot dog eating contest, E-Olympics delivered several challenges for all EC students to compete and try winning in.



Following that was an event especially made to appreciate faculty of Texas A&M, and form bonds with them beyond class settings. It was a formal dinner organized by Mahmoud Alaa Eldeen Hassanheld at the Student Centre ballroom, where students invited faculty and sat together for an award giving ceremony for best voted professors in different departments, as well as to enjoy student performances and games.  All proceeds from the ticket sales would go to the Qatar Orphanage Society.





Tuesday brought last year’s Laser Tag game to EC again, organized by Mohammed Al Ramahi. It had bigger and better guns, as well as the venue change to the large Pyramid Courtyard outdoors as the arena for students to compete in. Teams of six from all around Education City universities played exciting battles as people watched and cheered them on.



E-Week introduced a new event concept to EC this year as well - in true engineering fashion created the first life size Angry Birds contest. A real life adaption of the game was made, where slingshots and Angry Bird toys were used to bring down large towers with the pig toys. Asad Farid, the main organizer of the event worked hard with his team to build the large towers over and over for competing students to bring down.



E-Week finally ended on Thursday with the Fiesta, a Mexican themed award giving social for all of the winners in the E-Week competitions. The Fiesta, which was organized by Feras Al-Khayyat, had Mexican music, burritos and tortillas for dinner, as well as a surprise game – a machine bull to ride as a final competition for students to win prizes in.



The SEC worked hard to host the Engineering Week of 2012, with large audience participation and huge successes. It was a week to break stereotypes of conventional engineering and for A&M students to show their worth in hosting fun filled events for the student body of Education City.
