In the Fall of 2007, in consultation with education experts in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a decision was made by the UBT Board of Trustees to establish an Engineering College with three specific programs; namely, Industrial Engineering, Electronics and Communications, and Computer Engineering. In later years, civil engineering and IT programs were added to what we now know as the College of Engineering and Information Technology (CEIT). Currently in 2016, in light of the strong labor market requirements for engineers of various specializations, CEIT aims to honor the University of Business and Technology’s guarantee of "Education for Job Opportunities". We continue to strive in providing the disciplines that benefit the immediate requests of multiple industries.

Our CEIT programs are licensed by the Ministry of Education (MOE), and are in high demand from entry-level students and the 2-year technical colleges’ graduates.

CEIT is located in a unique state-of-the-art building that was specially designed for engineering education. It boasts an outstanding line-up of professional educators of various disciplines, and is duly equipped with the up-to-date laboratory equipment. CEIT provides academic education and research that reach high academic standards.
