Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering at King Saud University (KSU). Civil Engineering Department was established in 1962. Thus, we are considered to be one the earliest Civil Engineering Departments in the nation. Currently, the department is being led by highly qualified academics including 52 distinguished professors and 25 staff members committed to deliver excellence in education and guidance. More than 600 graduate and undergraduate students are enrolled in the department programs. In compliance with the “Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030”, the department is employing its resources to conduct creative research in different fields including the energy uses, water resources and sustainable infrastructure.
It is our mission to maintain excellence in quality and sustainability of civil engineering industry, to provide the society with highly qualified civil engineers capable of meeting 21st century industrial challenges, and to serve the society through involvement in knowledge sharing, outreach, and professional activities (e.g., innovative research, developing new technologies, and continuing education and professional development).
My goal as a department chair is to improve our students learning experience by providing them with best engineering tools, and skills to discover their ultimate capabilities. Another goal is to bridge the gap between the academic research and the industrial needs.
Dr. Abdullah Alsabhan
Chairman of Civil Engineering Department
