Vision

To be an educational icon for Engineering and Architecture in KSA and neighboring countries.

 

Mission

To provide an outstanding education and innovative scientific research to enhance the field of Engineering and Architecture in the region

Welcome to the College of Engineering and Architecture at Al Yamamah University.

Here you will find a vibrant learning culture and an outstanding community of learners, faculty members and researchers dedicated to addressing contemporary engineering challenges faced in the region.  I have the privilege of leading one of the fastest-growing colleges of Engineering in the area. Our vision is to be an educational icon for Engineering and Architecture in KSA and neighboring countries. At the same time, our mission focuses on providing outstanding education and innovative cutting edge scientific research.

Our College has come a long way since its establishment in 2014. Today, the College of Engineering and Architecture is comprised of three departments: Department of Architecture, Department of Computer Engineering and the recently established Department of Industrial Engineering. These departments offer four accredited B.Sc. programs: Architecture, Network Engineering and Security, Software Engineering, and Industrial Engineering. Our curricula for all programs combine a strong theoretical background with hands-on experience in excellent labs and, most importantly, we emphasize close interaction with the outstanding faculty to create an atmosphere truly conducive to learning.

The College is also very active in offering short courses, workshops and seminars, which provide ample avenues to disseminate engineering knowledge to the local, regional and international community. Furthermore, the College organizes international conferences in various engineering fields, which attracts international researchers and provides them with a conducive environment in which knowledge, research findings can be shared, and new ideas can be discussed, hence promoting and strengthening a knowledge-based society. We have strong regional and international cooperation with prominent universities to expose our students and faculty members to global experiences.

Nevertheless, I believe that there is still plenty of room for improvement and advancement. My vision is to move forward with the establishment of post-graduate studies as well as launching new programs for undergraduate students based on the needs of the Kingdom, and to continue perusing international accreditation for all our programs in the College.

Thank you very much for your visit, and I invite you to explore our website and learn more about the College. I hope you will find it both enjoyable and informative, and, as always, we welcome your comments or queries.
