Civil Engineering Program
Civil Engineering program at King Faisal University, which is part of the
Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, was established in 1430H
(2009) based on high quality national and international academic standards. The
program is highly competitive and demanding and have a crucial impact on the
progress, development, and the improvement of the quality and living standards
in the kingdom. We believe that qualified and leader faculty members in their
fields, dynamic students, international collaboration, and up-to-date
laboratories and facilities are the keystones of the structure of our CE
Career opportunities for the civil engineering at
national and regional levels are very high because of the pressing needs to
build, improve, and maintain the infrastructure.
Our undergraduate students receive a B.Sc. in civil
engineering and may become fairly specialized through the offered elective
courses that covers several areas in civil engineering. The covered areas are
Structure, Geotechnical, Transportation, Water and Environmental, &
Construction and Engineering Management. For graduate studies, the CEE Department
is currently working on establishing master programs (M.Sc. & M.Eng.).
Considering the importance and need to have and
maintain high level of quality in education, the CE program, and from the early
start, decided to go through and to practice the means and processes that will
lead to the international recognition and accreditation. The civil engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
