Welcome to the Homepage of theCollege of Design and Built Environment (CDBE). I hope you find the information contained in this site meet your needs.
The College of Design and Built Environment (CDBE) was established in 1401 H (1981) to meet the large demand for professionals in the construction and construction related industries. The College was planned in order to incorporate the academic programs that are mainly concerned with the built environment, both the natural and man-made aspects of this environment, and to prepare students for professional practice in Architecture, Architectural Engineering, Construction Engineering and Management and City Planning. The College has four departments: Architecture, Architectural Engineering, Construction Engineering, and Management, and City and Regional Planning, and offers Bachelor’s degrees in Architecture, and Architectural Engineering, and Master’s degrees in Architectural Engineering, Construction Engineering, and Management, and City and Regional Planning.
The educational philosophy of the College of Design and Built Environment, as its name suggests, is to develop interdisciplinary relations between the professionals who share a common concern for the design and creation of the built environment. In recognition of this commonality, the college has been organized as one unit with shared common facilities and harmony with the nature of KFUPM as a technological university and in consideration of the present and future needs of Saudi Arabia, all the programs in the College are heavily oriented towards the teaching of physical design principles and the application of advanced technology.
If you have any question concerning our College, academic or research programs, please do not hesitate to contact me or my colleagues, the chairmen of the academic departments in College of Design and Built Environment.
