Continuous assessment is the key for quality assurance at the university. The aim of assessment is to understand how educational programs are working and to determine whether they are contributing to student growth and development. Program assessment focuses on programs rather than on individual students. It provides information on whether the curriculum as a whole provides students with the knowledge, skills and values that graduates should possess in accordance with its mission and set goals and learning objectives.
The Program Assessment Center (PAC) at KFUPM strives to achieve its mission towards developing quality education that meets local industry needs following reputable international standards. It provides the necessary services and support for the various academic programs and research units at the University. It also facilitates and coordinates their efforts to meet their objectives and institutional goals.
