    It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Faculty of Engineering which is one of the most recently established applied science faculties at the Islamic University in Medina. It started offering its academic programs in the academic year of 1434/1435 AH and has since occupied a leading position among other Islamic oriented institutions as a result of its state of the art quality based education systems. Our faculty also provides grants to students from all over the world in alignment with the international mission of the Islamic University to develop a diverse cohort of local and international students in various disciplines while maintaining excellence and leadership in both teaching and research.
