A Message From The Dean

Professor Jamal Nayfeh, Ph.D., College of Architecture and Design Dear visitors,

On behalf of the College of Architecture and Design at Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University in Al-Khobar (PMU), Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all prospective students, their parents, employers, and the community at large.

At our prestigious and reputable institution, we are proud to offer select comprehensive accredited undergraduate and graduate degree programs that foster creativity, innovation, and design excellence. Our undergraduate programs include the Bachelor of Science in Architecture, Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design, and Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. For those seeking to further their education, we provide the Master of Science in Interior Design, a program that enables students to specialize and enhance their expertise in this dynamic field.

What sets our college apart is the quality of our curricula, which have been developed by our esteemed faculty members who are leaders in their respective fields and in partnership with a consortium of Texas universities in the US. Our dedicated faculty members have years of experience and are passionate about providing students with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in the industry. They have consistently guided our students towards achieving remarkable accomplishments, both academically and professionally, which has earned our college a well-deserved reputation for excellence.

One of the hallmarks of our programs is the studio-based project learning approach that we embrace. From the moment students join us as freshmen until they graduate as seniors, they will engage in hands-on, practical experiences within studio environments. This immersive learning method allows students to develop their creativity, teamwork, problem-solving, and critical thinking abilities, preparing them for the challenges they will face in the real world.

Additionally, our college places great emphasis on green and sustainable design practices. We believe in nurturing responsible architects and designers who understand the importance of creating environmentally-friendly built environments. This commitment to sustainability is integrated into our curricula, enabling our students to make a positive impact on society and contribute to the development of a greener future.

I would like to extend an invitation to all interested parties to visit our PMU campus and experience firsthand the incredible creations of our talented students. Our galleries proudly showcase the digital and physical workpieces of our students' projects. We believe that the best way to appreciate the creativity, skill, and dedication of our students is to witness their remarkable creations in person.

Once again, welcome to the College of Architecture and Design at Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University. We look forward to embarking on a transformative journey with all prospective students, their parents, employers, and the wider community. Together, we can shape a future characterized by exceptional design and innovation.

Warm regards,

Professor Jamal Nayfeh, Ph.D.
