Welcome to Aerospace Engineeing Department

Aerospace Engineering Department welcomes you to the department of Aerospace Engineering (AE) homepage. The idea for AE was launched over 20 years ago, and the proposal for the Aerospace Engineering Department was initiated in 1404 H (1984 G). Aerospace Engineering Department was established in 1423 H (2002 G) as the first full-fledge Aerospace (Aeronautics and Astronautics) engineering department in the kingdom and in the Gulf region.​

 The department has a well-defined vision of positioning KFUPM into a ‘leading and guiding’ institution by developing a full range of aerospace degrees (undergraduate, graduate, and associate degrees) and conducting original research programs of the highest quality for meeting the Kingdom’s and region’s needs for education, manpower, and technical expertise in AE and related fields. Moreover, the department aims at providing high quality education at international level in AE, well grounded in the fundamental principles of engineering, in order to inspire and prepare students for leadership positions in many job openings in reputed organizations such as Royal Saudi Air force (RSAF), Saudi-Aramco Aviation and for some off-set programs and private aerospace companies.
