A Message from His Excellency: | Dr. Abdullah M. Al Rubaish, President of University of Dammam Since its establishment only five years ago, the University of Dammam (UD) has already accomplished many of its objectives in the field of infrastructure, as well as in the field of academia by creating, developing and enhancing the University’s academic programs. The University has successfully overcome several obstacles and challenges associated with a growing academic institution and has matured into a leading international university ready to guide the next generation into the future. We are steadfast in our commitment to fulfilling the goals and developmental endeavors of the Kingdom, enshrined in its strategic plans; represented by the Ninth Development Plan, The AAFAQ Plan for Higher Education as well as the National Strategy for transforming the Kingdom into a knowledge-based community as well as a knowledge-based economy. The most critical elements in these strategies are the preparation of our graduates for a knowledge-based community and the active role they will play in the construction of a knowledge-based economy. With these goals in mind it is the responsibility of the administration, faculty and staff of UD to ensure that the students receive and have access to all the required resources for success, that the graduates of UD will not only be ready for a knowledge-based community and economy, but they will be the innovative leaders. Education is the heart of the knowledge-based community because it is based on the foundations of research, innovation and learning. Hence, UD has focused on building the students’ skills through the improvement of student performance by using an outcome-based education method, which focuses on the student. This method also reinforces the acquisition and mastering of vital skills in the areas of: entrepreneurship, digital technology, problem solving, critical thinking and the integration of learning with knowledge, which all contribute to increasing the students’ career opportunities in the labor market. The University is also dedicated to employing communication and information technology in education, to using quality open-sourced educational methodologies, providing demanding but inspiring academic programs, encouraging innovation in teaching in addition to monitoring the quality of academic programs through internal and external quality systems. The University, as the mechanism of innovation and growth, is moving towards enhancing its role in the field of research. UD has and continues to focus on research projects that contribute to the solutions of national, regional and international problems in a way that also creates and advances partnerships with the community. UD supports excellence in research and innovation in order to positively contribute to national research priorities, while at the same time ensuring intellectual property and steadfastly supporting both ethical norms and standards of research. UD provides an ideal environment conducive to carrying out exceptional research as well as encouraging collaborative research within the University or in association with national and international institutions. Through its various roles, The University of Dammam will remain committed to guiding and teaching ethically conscious and responsible graduates who will be instrumental in the realization of sustainable development in the local community, the Kingdom and the world.

College of Clinical Pharmacy | The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has made the welfare and health care of its citizens a priority by establishing numerous medical schools throughout the Kingdom that specialize in the following health care fields: medical, dental, pharmacy and applied medical sciences. With current developments in both the private and government hospitals, the pharmacist’s work has evolved from only not only compounding and dispensing medicines but to actively participating in patient care. This has led to changes in the curricula of existing pharmacy schools in order to be fully prepared for this new role. Colleges of pharmacy are now designed as “Colleges of Clinical Pharmacy” with the focus on patient care. One such example is the College of Clinical Pharmacy at the University of Dammam, which was established by a Royal Decree (Number 5088/MB) on 7/8/1432 AH (8/7/2011 CE). The College since then has endeavored to deliver a well structured and academically sound PharmD program for their pharmacy students. In 2013 two postgraduate programs were proposed, an MS/PhD in Clinical Pharmacy/Pharmacy Practice as well as an MS/PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences which are both currently in the planning stages as well as a proposed residency or fellowship program for our pharmacy graduates.

69

Environmental Engineering Department : Environmental Engineering concentrates on the application of the fundamentals of science and engineering towards the improvement of the environment (air, water and earth resources) for the provision of potable and palatable water, clean air and land and for treatment of polluted areas. Environmental engineering incorporates: water and air quality management, abatement of pollution, reuse and recycling, hazardous solid waste disposal, general health issues and knowledge of related law to environmental engineering. Environmental engineering also involves environmental impact assessment for proposed projects in building and industry. An environmental engineer is concerned with environmental behavior and hazardous solid waste management in the form of studies to evaluate these hazards, offering advice in regards of treatment and enclosure and establishing systems to prevent accidents. Other concerns of the environmental engineer are: design of municipal and industrial water supply and wastewater treatment systems. This is in addition to responsibilities all over the globe regarding environmental issues such as: the effects of acid rain, ozone layer depletion, water pollution, air pollution from vehicles and industrial sources. Biomedical Engineering Department : Biomedical Engineering is defined as the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology. This field aims to understand, modify, or control biological systems, as well as design and build products that are capable of monitoring physiological functions and assisting in diagnosing and treating patients. Biomedical Engineering seeks to close the gap between engineering and medicine: it combines the design and problem solving skills of engineering with the medical and biological sciences in order to improve healthcare diagnosis, monitoring and therapy. Recently, biomedical engineering has emerged as its own discipline. Most of the work done by biomedical engineers focuses on research and development, covering a wide range of subfields, such as: biomedical electronics, bioinstrumentation, biomaterials, biomechanics, tissue and genetic engineering, clinical engineering, medical imaging, rehabilitation engineering, systems physiology, bio bionanotechnology, and neural engineering.
