In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, and peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his family and companions.

The Department of Engineering and Applied Sciences is one of the pioneering departments in the UQU's Makkah Community College. It was established to meet the urgent and growing need of the Saudi society for the specializations provided by the Department. The Department offers two academic programs in the fields of computer and architectural engineering. The graduate is awarded a diploma which qualifies him to continue his studies in the corresponding bachelor programs offered by the University.

In line with the Saudi Vision 2030, the Department is constantly developing its programs and searching for new programs to keep pace with the requirements of the labor market and the needs of the Saudi community. This is guided by its ambitious and well-established vision which will lead to the graduation of qualified technical cadres according to international standards. The Department also endeavors to develop and upgrade its human cadres, and provide an academic environment that encourages creativity and excellence on the part of the members of the academic staff and our students.

At the level of quality and academic accreditation, the Department has significantly supported the College, resulting in the male section obtaining the academic accreditation from the American Council on Occupational Education (COE) on 30 June, 2010 A.C., corresponding to 1431 A.H., for six years.

To prove the Department's performance quality, this accreditation was renewed to the male's section and was also awarded to the female's section in Al-Mansour road on 30 June 2017 A.C., corresponding to 1438 A.H.

To maintain excellence, the Department will participate in the University's preparations for the academic accreditation from the National Center for Assessment and Academic Accreditation "NCAAA" by meeting the accreditation requirements for the programs provided by the Department in both sections.

Allah willing, hard work and diligence will guarantee more achievements and will realize more objectives.


The Head of the Department of Engineering and Applied Sciences
