Programs and scientific disciplines at
the University of Prince Mugrin
A foundation year program that endeavors to nurture and develop students to be firm in various sciences, experiences and skills that will prepare them to interact successfully in a knowledge-based society and develop the necessary capacities for life-long learning. The Preparatory Year Program provides students with an opportunity to enhance their ability to think critically and develop their skills in English language, mathematics and computer science, providing them with a knowledge base that is transferable across different academic disciplines and vocational contexts.
College of Engineering
The College of Engineering provides students with an opportunity to develop a strong background in the engineering sciences and to learn the analysis, design and synthesis tools necessary to function well as active participants in many traditional, new and emerging areas of technology. The College of Engineering has excellent laboratory facilities where students receive hands-on instruction by faculty. Computer-aided design (CAD) facilities, including state-of-the-art workstations, which are routinely used in all programs. The engineering education incorporates demonstrable accreditation criteria as part of its core values. Graduates from the College of Engineering should have excellent opportunities for employment and will have the necessary skills to aid in the development of the national economy and society as a whole.
College of Computer Science & Information Technology
The College of Computer Science and Information Technology (CSIT) aims to provide quality education and professional experiences to empower students in the computing disciplines to attain their professional and academic goals. We provide students with modern curriculum, tools and technology to complete their degrees and to be competitive in the labor market. We empower students to achieve their goals by establishing and maintaining relationships with faculty, universities and industry. As increasingly complex systems evolve, the world will depend upon people who understand how these systems work, as well as those who can continue to develop new software and applications. CSIT College students at UPM use creativity and computational approaches to complete unique hands-on student-led projects and gain real-world experience. The College of Computer Science and Information Technology is keen to fulfill the demands of the labor market and in doing so UPM is the first University in KSA and the Gulf region to offer an undergraduate degree program in Forensic Computing and Cyber Security.
