A Message from His Excellency: | Prof. Abdullah M. Al Rubaish, President of University of Dammam Nearly Five years ago, in the month of Ramadan 1430H/ September 2009G, the University of Dammam “UOD” became a fully independent University after being a branch from King Faisal University since 1395H/1975G. The UOD carries an academic and research legacy spans over almost four decades where some of its early colleges received their first students in Since the OD has gone through drastic demographic and geographical changes ts si e increased to a number of colleges and ma ors The number of its affiliates increased to 41705 students, 2067 faculty members and 4917 employees. The University branches extended to cover the City of Dammam and six other Mohafa ahat along the Eastern Pro ince atif Al ubail aryah Olyah oayriyah Kha i and Hafrubatin). On 2/6/1435H (2/4/2014G) a Royal Decree separated four branches from the UOD (Qaryah Olyah, oayriyah Kha i and afrubatin to form a new ni ersity named afr Al atin ni ersity Recently OD has Colleges speciali ed disciplines students faculty members and staffs Since its foundation, the UOD is determined to update its curricula and develop new ones, to provide academic en ironment that promotes arious areas of nowledge and science and to conduct scientific research directed to and associated with the problems of the environment and society. The UOD has managed to accomplish a great deal of development in physical infrastructure as well as in existing and new programs. The UOD does its best to o ercome all types of difficulties and obstacles The ni ersity is eager to achie e more successes and draw its pace toward global leadership, bearing in mind challenges which confront institutions of higher education. The University is looking forward to participating in achieving national goals through national and sector development strategies represented in the 10th National Development Plan, the Higher Education Plan “Afaq” and the National Strategy for the Transformation to Knowledge Society and Knowledge-based Economy. These strategies are thrusts to prepare the UOD alumni to meet the requirements of knowledge society and to participate in building the knowledge-based economy.

Since education is located in the heart of the economy of knowledge, because it is based on the platform of research, innovation and learning, the UOD pays considerable attention to building the skills of students by focusing on improving their performance. The UOD applies output quality-based education systems which center on the student and support his basic skills, especially the skills of project management, digital technologies, problem-solving, critical thinking, and integrating learning with knowledge. These skills increase the opportunities of UOD Graduates to be employed in the labor market. The UOD has also promoted the use of communication and information technologies in education and taken the advantage of high quality open-source education systems. The University insures the provision of high-standard study programs by encouraging innovative teaching, intensifying quality assessment and assurance of programs and building systems of internal and external quality. Furthermore, the UOD moves to strengthen its role in the area of research as an engine of innovation and growth. As such, UOD’s research focuses on projects, which contribute to solving local, regional and global problems; achieve community partnership; promote excellence and innovation in research quality, contribute positively in the national research priorities, observe the rights of intellectual ownership, and adhere to traditions and standards of scientific ethical research The OD is careful to establish appropriate en ironment for research excellence and to encourage conducting joint research within the University with other local or global institutions. With the permission of Allah the Almighty, the University of Dammam, with various roles will do its best to provide the righteous graduates with good citi enship and effecti e participation in the achie ement of de elopment of sustainable and prosperous society in the nation and the world at large. As I introduce this brief manual about UOD achievements to our valued readers, I pray to Allah to bless those who participate in and assist the ni ersity of Dammam to fulfil its role positi ely as one of the institutional actors charged with shaping the future of this nation and building its civilization and prosperity.
