Civil and Environmental Engineering

The Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) is one of the oldest Departments at KFUPM and has been offering a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Civil Engineering since the establishment of the University in 1963. The Department commenced the Masters (MS) program in 1972 and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program in 1985. State-of-the-art laboratory facilities have been developed for laboratory teaching and research in all core and interdisciplinary areas. The Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0) conceptualizes rapid change to technology, industries, and societal patterns and processes in the 21st Century due to increasing interconnectivity and smart automation. Recently, KFUPM has introduced a set of new undergraduate concentrations to meet the IR4.0 requirements, job market trends in exciting disciplines, and aligned with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. To play our part in achieving this goal, the CEE Department has also developed several concentrations (CXs) for BS programs as well as professional Masters (MXs) programs for engineers working in the industry. Considering the high demand for engineers in the field of Environmental Science and Engineering, recently, the CEE Department has recently started a new BS and a new MX program in Environmental Science and Engineering.
