Welcome To The College Of Engineering
In Fall 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, Computer Engineering and Information Technology. Then Civil Engineering was added to the college by fall 2012.
The high requirements of the labor market in the field of engineering in various disciplines leads the College of Engineering to set a goal of continuing update the programs to meet the necessary needs of different industries, which is consistent with the university’s vision of "Education for Job Opportunities".
The College of Engineering has a unique building that was specifically designed to support engineering education and is equipped with the latest equipment, laboratories and engineering workshops, which enables the college to provide academic educational programs and research that rise to high academic standards, which give students the needed skills and knowledge required to become successful engineers, technological experts and innovative in local and international business environments.
In fall of 2018, the College of Engineering updated and developed all its programs to match the requirements of the next phase of the nation’s life, which are in line with the Kingdom's vision 2030, in cooperation with a number of international universities such as the University of Connecticut and Western Michigan University in the United States of America. The college offers six programs and twenty-nine track, including tracks that do not exist in any other university or college in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, such as nanotechnology, renewable energy and others.
