    Dean`s Welcome The College of Engineering at Imam Abdulrahman bin

    Faisal University is characterized by its vision to offer

    unique degree programs not available anywhere else in

    the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) or the Gulf countries,

    meeting the constantly changing needs of the

    marketplace. The College currently offers non-traditional

    engineering degrees in Construction Engineering,

    Environmental Engineering, Energy Engineering, Transportation and Traffic Engineering

    and Biomedical (available for girls). Other degree programs such as: Infrastructure

    Engineering, Structural, Maritime Engineering Security and Safety Engineering are

    currently in the planning stages.

    Since its establishment in 1429/1430 H, the College has started with construction and

    environmental engineering programs addressing the current development in the

    Kingdom and that it is expected in the future. Construction engineering specialization

    provides engineers who are able to manage and supervise construction projects of all

    types in design and construction stages, both in design offices and in construction

    sites. While the environmental engineering specialization is concerned with the

    negative effects of industry and construction on the environment, and trials to avoid or

    reduce them so that projects take into account environmental controls according to

    sustainability criteria.

    The specialization of biomedical engineering for female students was added in the

    academic year 1433 / 1432H. This is to prepare and qualify female engineers to be

    able to deal with design and improvement of equipment, devices and machines

    available in hospitals, in the hope that this specialization will be highly welcomed by the

    medical sectors in the Kingdom and abroad.

    In the year 1435/1436, the first batch of students in the field of transportation and

    traffic engineering came from the need to control traffic problems such as traffic

    congestion, environmental pollution and poor traffic safety on road networks where

    traffic accidents are a phenomenon that affects all sectors of society and causes

    humanitarian suffering with its impact on individuals, loss of life and property.

    In order to achieve the vision of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Vision 2030), which aims

    to increase energy production in order to achieve growth and prosperity for industry

    and the national economy, the College started the program of energy engineering in

    1438/1439. This specialization is concerned with qualification of engineers to work on

    design, construction, operation and maintenance of various traditional, nuclear and

    renewable energy systems from wind and solar energy, as well as working on energy

    conservation systems and integration of renewable energy systems with traditional


    In 1438/1439, the College of Engineering launched its first graduate program with a

    Master of Engineering Management, which is available to those who are distinguished

    and interested in completing their educational journey from all engineering programs

    with all its different disciplines. There are also graduate programs in preparation,

    including postgraduate diplomas, master's and doctorate degrees.
