"Studying Computer Engineering at KFUPM is interesting and fun. Our Department provides a friendly, lively and supportive environment for students to grow as Computer Engineer."
We offer a range of exciting undergraduate and graduate courses delivered by our world-class faculty. Our learning environment supports students and also challenges their ability. Our courses provide a firm grounding in the concepts, knowledge, and skills that today's graduates need, and are constantly revised and updated to keep track of a rapidly changing field and to equip you with the knowledge and skills you need for a career shaping the future. Today, we are rated among the Kingdom's top Computer Engineering departments for the quality of our research. The widely used 'research power' measure, which takes into account both the quality and size of research contributions, places us among the top departments. Our research excellence informs our curriculum and teaching. Students graduate from our department with a degree recognized and valued throughout the world. Employers like Saudi Aramco, SABIC, Saudi Telecom and Ministry of Defense & Aviation actively seek out our students for projects, placements, and graduate jobs but the career options open to our graduates are by no means limited to traditional IT companies. Computing is at the heart of revolutions in business, science, and society, transforming areas like medicine, biology, chemistry, and social science. New career opportunities are appearing all the time. Of course, studying for a degree is not all work! We have a thriving student advisory committee and students are active in many aspects of university life.
I do hope you'll find the Computer Engineering Department interesting and stimulating, and I look forward very much to welcoming you to our department.
