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.
