Product Design and Development Unit (PDDU)

About PDDU

Product Design and Development Unit (PDDU) is another endeavor that aligns the university closer to its vision of contributing to the continuous development of Saudi Arabia. In collaboration with Ultimate Solutions, PDDU provides advanced training programs on product design and virtualization using state of the art software modeling tools, CNC machines, 3D scanning, and 3D printing. The training falls under the umbrella of the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) paradigm. PLM was adopted by most of the advanced manufacturing companies in the world as a process of managing the entire lifecycle of a product from inception, through engineering design and manufacture, to service and disposal of manufactured products.

Main Objectives
