Director’s Message

Welcome to the Office of Research & Innovation web site. This Office gives assistance to faculty in the search for external funding, in the management of awarded grants and contracts, as well as in the commercialization of innovative research results. Entrepreneurial activities are encouraged through generation of intellectual property (IP), new product development, collaboration with industry, and training of graduate students. Eminence in research is crucial to achieving the University's goals of becoming a leading educational institution and a model in the region. It is also a critical component to the University's mission of conducting world class research that benefits the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the region, and the world.
