KING ABDULAZIZ UNIVERSITY

Faculty of Engineering

Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering at King Abdulaziz University (KAU, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia). We are a large engineering faculty, with an extraordinary range of disciplines that we cover. I think it’s fair to say that those who study here find it a welcoming experience. KAU in Jeddah offers the best engineering education in Saudi Arabia. Design is a critical aspect of most engineering practice. Our design courses for first-year students (IE201: Engineering Design I and IE202: Engineering Design II) represent a good step in a quiet revolution in the education of future engineers. We send our graduates out with knowledge, understanding and skills that enable them to solve real-world problems. Education in engineering is education for life.Last year, the Faculty of Engineering received more than S.R. 17 million from the university fund, KACST and corporations to update equipments in the laboratories and to support engineering research.The Faculty of Engineering at KAU is proud to have earned the center of excellence in water desalination sponsored by the Ministry of Higher Education. We also work hard to use our recently granted four chair professorships to excel in applied research that tackles research problems important to Saudi Arabia.The Faculty of Engineering at KAU is committed to continuously improve and develop our systems, students, programs and faculty.
