By virtue of Allah's Grace and Facilitation, a delegation of the academic staff and students from the College of Engineering and College of Computer Sciences in Al-Leith visited Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries at its headquarters at King Abdulaziz International Airport on Thursday, 21 Rabi` Al-Awwal, 1440 A.H.
The delegation had a tour of the company's facilities, got invaluable information, and became acquainted with the achievements of Saudi youth in the field of engineering and manufacturing of airplanes.
