Rooted in our commitment to student-centered education, applied research, and societal development, the Faculty of Engineering at KAU champions renowned case-based research by its esteemed faculty, and visiting scholars’ joint-studies.  It is with our close relations and collaborations with highly recognized academic institutions and industries that a wealth of our research-based resources and options are continuing to significantly impact regional communities.  From our Ministry of Higher Education sponsored Center of Excellence in Water Desalination, to our Center of Excellence in Intelligence Engineering Systems (CEIES) and our innovative fabrication laboratories, KAU Engineering’s scientific and technical footprint is left in a wide array of arenas.

Since its establishment in 1975, the Faculty of Engineering has endeavored to build upon its parent institution’s core values of enriching society through cultural prominence, scientific acumen and pioneering research.  In doing so, it has afforded itself an invaluable amount of administrative and monetary support, receiving up to 67 million SAR in funding for research and further program development.  Twelve out of fourteen programs of the Faculty of Engineering’s eight departments are accredited by ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology), and undergo rigorous program evaluations on a continuous basis to maintain this elite status.

Where engineering excellence, scientific research, and technical innovation meet leadership and quality, is where you are guaranteed to find KAU Engineering thriving to make things happen.  With this, my sincerest invitation is extended to you to join us in doing so.
