  Second Seminar Title: How to be prolific Publisher It is difficult for much academic staff to publish research articles in reputable journals. The fact is that they are capable of doing it but lack the basic knowledge about research and publications.  This seminar was aimed to introduce the academic staff with the basic information of research and publications and then motivate them to be a prolific publisher. The seminar was divided into two sections with the first section highlighting the necessity of research and publications along with providing the information related to different journals, impact factors, indexes, etc. The second part of the seminar was focussed to elaborate on how to write a good research article and what are factors to be considered.  The response of the academic staff was good after the seminar as many of them requested the slides for their reference.

  One of KKU's programs dedicated to training outside the Kingdom is a summer internship in the United States and represents a partnership between KKU and Purdue University. The PAGE program (Purdue Academic Global Engineering) completes six weeks at Purdue University. Purdue University is located in Indianapolis, west of Lafayette. This program is one of the best program for engineering students at King Khalid University. One of the benefits of this program is to provide courses and lectures to students in English during the first week at Purdue University, and then field visits to some factories and international laboratories. First Day: Arrival in Chicago Second  day: Reception Next days: Lectures and visits Third week: Lectures and visits ​Fourth week: Lectures and visits Fifth week: Lectures and visits Sixth week: Lectures and visits In the end, the students of the summer training expressed their deep happiness with what they have gained from this experience full of knowledge, knowledge, and fun and it was an unforgettable experience for all students.
