I am pleased and honored to welcome our students and congratulate them on their affiliation to the Faculty of Engineering at Rabigh. I would like to encourage all students to work hard and to acquire knowledge and experience in their field of study and to become distinguished engineers. I also call upon all faculty members and the administrative staff to give their best efforts in their academic and administrative tasks in order to provide a soundeducational environment for our students as they are our prior and ultimate objective.
The college has taken fast and rapid steps since its inception in 2008. It has completed the establishment of its departments and academic programs with the design of their new curricula and study plans in accordance with national and international standards in order to reach distinctive learning outcomes in the field of science and engineering applications.
