Many girls are told to think twice when they choose any branch of engineering as a college major. These three girls, however, managed to get an international prize in industrial engineering powered by Procter and Gamble.
Malak Al-Mousli, Rawan Baik and Lina Hussain from King Abdulaziz University competed against 23,000 participants from 40 different countries and won. Through the stages of the competition, they were required to design a strategy for a high profile company with a budget of $1 billion.
They displayed good marketing, business management, human resources, strategy development and budgeting; but they were especially proud that they were able to change the stereotype of Saudi women.
