This program is the first of its kind in the Kingdom, looking to enhance the education and opportunities for women of Saudi Arabia. PNU, also known as the largest women’s university campus in the world, hosted the in-person classes for the course back in February. The students were all able to access the university’s dorms, facilities, and all other top-class amenities. This is a big step for the women of Saudi Arabia, and a great oppportunity to step into the technology world.
