WELCOME To The UBT DEANSHIP OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

About Us

The Deanship of Scientific Research was established in 2013 as a Research and Consultation Center at the University of Business and Technology. Through the implementation of new strategies, hard work, and dedication the Center evolved into a Deanship in 2017. As a result, UBT was able to transform from a teaching-based university to a teaching and research-based university promoting scientific innovation and research.

The Deanship of Scientific Research supports UBT's research mission and solve problems facing the business sector and the whole economy in Saudi Arabia and the region, in line with Saudi Vision 2030 and the Development Plan 2020. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has a strategic goal; to become one of the advanced countries in science, technology and innovation by (2030) as well as creating a “knowledge-based economy and society” UBT and DSR works to fulfill this goal.

On this note, The Deanship brings together faculty members, staff, and students, unifying their efforts to develop interdisciplinary approaches to goal-oriented problems. DSR, through its Research Development Department, Economic Development Department, Publication Department, and Consultancy services link researchers and the industry together, providing an opportunity to solve current issues facing the Saudi community and economy, improve current materials, or develop new ones. Moreover, DSR looks for the industrial potential that will support the economic development of the kingdom through startups and economic development projects. Read More...

ENERGY CONVERSION & STORAGE

Energy technologies are of particular importance to KSA. Energy is a key driver of the Kingdom’s development and economic growth. Furthermore, the electricity sector in the Kingdom faces great challenges in fulfilling the rising demand for electricity consumption that is the foundation of economic and social development. Researchers develop sustainable energy devices by exploring new materials. They also explore and exploit the benefits of Nanotechnology that are offered for sustainable energy solutions in addition to the impact on the environment. Furthermore, they focus on designing new device architecture, and explore new eco-green materials that will boost the efficiency of these devices. Major research topics:

  • Solar cells
  • Fuel cells
  • Piezoelectric
  • Thermoelectric
  • Batteries
  • Super-capacitors

ELECTRONICS, COMMUNICATION & IT

In order to improve KSA’s ranking and meet the domestic needs in these technology areas, there must be broad improvement in the Kingdom’s infrastructure and knowledge base. Researchers employ Nanotechnology to develop electronic communication and Photonics devices. They focus on elevating performance; and reducing cost, size, and weight. Major research topics:

  • LED
  • Display (Flexible)
  • Memory
  • Nano-transistors
  • Nano-photonics devices
  • Nano-sensors
  • Nano-robots
  • NEMS
  • Quantum computing
  • Quantum crystallography
  • Drug delivery
