On behalf of all the staff in the Office of Research & Graduate Studies (ORG) we would like to welcome you to our website. The main aims or functions of the Office are to facilitate faculty members in obtaining external research funding, to manage internal research funded projects and to aid and expedite undergraduate student research through for example poster competitions and industry sponsored student research such as provided Boeing and Shell. In addition, the Office also has overall responsibility for Graduate Studies at Alfaisal University. Our staff assists the Colleges in developing new graduate programs and facilitating their approval through both the University as well as the MOHE/NCAAA system. Since Alfaisal University is a private institution this affects both which external research funds our faculty can apply for as well as the approval process for new graduate programs. In addition, the Office through the Graduate Studies Subcommittee aids in managing the day-to-day needs of our students as they make their way through their graduate programs.
