What is Reverse Engineering?

Reverse engineering, also called back engineering, is the process by which a man-made object is deconstructed to reveal its designs, architecture, or to extract knowledge from the object; similar to scientific research, the only difference being that scientific research is about a natural phenomenon. Reverse engineering is applicable in the fields of mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, software engineering, chemical engineering, and systems biology. Reverse engineering is commonly used as a learning tool, as a way to make new comparable products that are cheaper than what is currently on the market, for making software operate more effectively or to bridge different operating systems or databases.


Short Course Program

This course is fully designed for the Saudi market in reverse engineering and provides you with the skills and knowledge needed for your surface reconstruction projects, whether for analysis or manufacturing purposes. Hands-on sessions are included to ensure that training is adapted to your application and to rapidly identify participants’ strengths and areas needing improvement. Subjects covered include:
