Derived from the vision of Imam Abdulrahman bin Faisal University, the College of Science envisions to achieve leadership and excellence in basic and applied sciences. In light of this, the Vice Deanship of Academic Affairs launches towards its goal of achieving excellence in education within academic programs that are constantly evolving in an attempt to bridge the gap between outputs and the demands of the labor market.

The College of Science makes continuous efforts to seek excellence and an advanced ranking among colleges of science at other universities. The Vice Deanship of Academic Affairs plays a supporting role by raising the level of performance in all aspects, especially academically, and by providing a positive environment conducive to effective education and community services. Perhaps the majority of attention though, is placed upon the student, his scientific knowledge and how it ties into his future career. Hence, the vice deanship has worked on developing academic programs characterized by increasing student involvement and combining theory and practice for optimal intellectual stimulation. In effect, this would equip our graduates with the ability to link what they learned into future experiences and to use scientific resources to further their knowledge and to effectively employ new knowledge in career development.

The deanship applies an academic approach that is based on maintaining quality assurance and academic accreditation, improving teaching by applying modern methods that shift focus from inputs to outputs, and enhancing practice to enrich students' cognitive and scientific skills. The deanship also aims at providing special track academic programs in line with modern developments and the vision of 2030, whilst being appropriate for community needs and context.

We ask Allah rectitude and success.
