Message from the Vice Dean for Postgraduate Studies and Scientific Research

- 2019/11/18

In the Name of Allah. All praise be to Allah, and may Allah's peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah. To proceed:

The Vice Deanship for Postgraduate Studies and Scientific Research constitutes one of the most important cornerstones of the work system at Jamoum University College; the task entrusted to it is that of accelerating progress and advancement through the development and follow-up of promising postgraduate programs. It also provides a significant opportunity for the development of the Saudi individuals within local communities by equipping them with high scientific skills. This is in addition to the key role this vice deanship plays in encouraging scientific research inside the college through organized work in research groups, and the efforts it undertakes to facilitate obtaining research grants from public or private donor institutions. It also compiles databases on the annual scientific production of academic members, which makes the overall process of quality reporting more efficient. Furthermore, the vice deanship supports the academic staff members with various services that facilitate the completion of different functional transactions, and follows up the procedures related to the selection and employment of teaching assistants and lecturers, administers their scholarships, and monitors their academic affairs.

With Allah's grace, since the beginning of the academic year 1440/1441 A.H., three master's programs have been launched: one in the Department of Biology, another in the Department of Physics, and the third in the Department of Computer Science. By Allah's Will, more postgraduate programs will be opened during the coming years, as soon as the necessary requirements for starting these programs are fulfilled.

The Vice Deanship is also concerned with scientific research publication, assurance of quality, and revising all matters and procedures related to scholarships and the Secretariat of the College's Vice Deanship.

We ask Allah to grant us success and guidance.
