The Royal Commission Yanbu Colleges & Institutes (RCYCI) comprises a group of leading engineering, computer science, and business management male and female campuses in Yanbu, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Ever since its inception in 1989, the group continues to attract the brightest and best students and staff. Times change but our desire to inspire you and help you realize your full potential through our associate and bachelor degrees, and vocational training programs remains as potent as always.


Yanbu Industrial College (YIC) in Yanbu Al-Sinaiyah is a 25-minute drive from the Prince Abdul Mohsin Bin Abdul Aziz Airport, the city’s international airport. The College is located about 350KM north of Jeddah on the coast of the Red Sea, one of the main waterways that connects Saudi Arabia, the world’s leading oil exporter, to Europe and Africa. To take advantage of Yanbu’s strategic geographical location and transform it into a modern industrial city, the Kingdom formed the Royal Commission of Jubail and Yanbu in 1975. Soon the city became the nation’s western terminus of pipelines to transport natural gas and crude oil to the world market. Realizing the increasing need to develop Saudi human resources with high technical education to manage this fast growing economy, the Royal Commission established the Yanbu Industrial College in 1989. Currently, Yanbu is host of many heavy hydro-carbon, petrochemical, chemical, mineral and downstream related industries.
