College of Design and Built Environment

The College of Design and Built Environment was established during the 1400 – 1401 (1980-1981) academic year to meet the large demand for professionals in the construction industry, resulting from the extensive ongoing construction program throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The College was established to bring together the academic programs that are mainly concerned with the built environment, both natural and man-made and to prepare students for professional practice in Architecture, Architectural Engineering, Construction Engineering and Management and City Planning.

The College has four departments:

  1. Architecture and City Design
  2. Architectural Engineering and Construction Management
  3. Civil and Environmental Engineering
  4. Integrated Design Department (ITD)
