Chemical Engineering Program
The Chemical Engineering Program at King Faisal University was
launched in 2011 with the objective to produce high quality chemical engineers
to cater for the needs of ever-increasing demand of quality chemical engineers
for the booming Saudi process industry. The Department has a strong and up to
date core curriculum complemented by electives that cover a wide range of
important traditional and emerging areas of Chemical Engineering. The program
is a blend of traditional chemical engineering topics and modern topics.
The program has
been ABET-EAC accredited until September 30, 2021. The accreditation was
awarded to the program from the first ABET visit in 2014-2015. The Program
Evaluator (PEV) during his campus visit remarked the following as the strong
points of the Chemical Engineering Program at King Faisal University:
The department has a low
student-to-faculty ratio, and excellent student-faculty interactions.
The program is evolving rapidly due
to continuous improvement based on the assessment process.
Laboratory facilities are well
equipped and well maintained. Students are equipped with the experimental and
analytical techniques & skills that are needed by local industries.
Research is an important focus of
activity and the Department has an excellent faculty who lead high quality
research programs in a wide spectrum of areas.
