The Department of Chemical Engineering Technology was established in 1989 with the mission of imparting technical knowledge and skills to Saudi youths to suit them in the growing industrial sectors in the Kingdom. Towards this, the department started its unique associate degree program of Process Operation and Chemical Analysis Technology, initially with a handful number of students.

Within the last two decades there has been a manifold increase in the student’s enrollment for the associate degree program on par with the demand from the growing chemical industries in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.To meet further the challenges in the growing chemical and allied industries and prepare the Saudi youths to compete and acquire higher managerial positions the BS program in Applied Chemical Engineering was introduced in 2005. An annual increase in enrollment is observed for the BS program too.

Needless to say, the department is committed to equip the Saudi youths to realize their full potential for the grasp of advanced technical knowledge and skills. It is my great pleasure and responsibility to welcome you to the department of chemical engineering technology to guide you, in shaping your career and carrying the Kingdom forward to speedy growth and progress.
