King Faisal University

College of Engineering


Civil Engineering Program


The 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 is expected to 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 field, dynamic students, and up-to-date laboratories and facilities are keystones in the structure of our program. 

Career opportunities for the civil engineering at national and regional levels are very high because of the pressing needs to built, improve, and maintain the infrastructure. 

Our undergraduate students receive a B.Sc. in civil engineering and may become fairly specialized through the elective courses in one of the several areas of civil engineering, including Structure, Geotechnical, Transportation, Water and Environmental, & Construction Management.

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 continuous hard work was culminated by applying to the accreditation cycle 2014-2015 of the international Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The CE program is ABET accredited to September 2021.
