The Department of Physics at the College of Science and Humanities in Jubail contributes to the College's vision and mission that emanates from the university's vision and mission. In response to restructuring the College and reorganization of the academic departments and their programs in 2019, the Department of Physics established the Physics and Renewable Energy Program, aligning with national trends towards sustainability and renewable energy. This program, the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, aims to educate female students in physics and renewable energy. It also seeks to empower students to devise creative solutions for sustainability and renewable energy challenges. The Department offers a Bachelor of Science degree specializing in Physics and Renewable energy. The Department is keen on applying quality and academic accreditation through an active working system among faculty members to graduate a cadre that meets the needs of the local and global market. In addition, the Department is working on raising the qualifications of faculty members through a variety of workshops and training courses.
