The Annual Research Day Student Poster Competition is held annually to strengthen the vision that research is indeed one of the missions of Alfaisal University. One of Alfaisal University’s priorities is competence building by helping to develop a student’s intellectual abilities through involvement in focused research that address strategic problems of concern to the country and the region. Students presented their summer research activities/ proposals/ future programs (https://research.alfaisal.edu/poster-comp). Students could submit a research paper in one of the following categories: Business, Management & Law; Engineering & Technology; Medicine, Pharmacy & Health Science; and Science & Humanities. Any undergraduate or graduate student currently enrolled at a university was eligible to participate
A research awards ceremony is held annually at the end of the spring semester to recognize student winners of the poster competition as well as faculty receiving awards for research excellence and patents.
Faculty Awards for Research Excellence were established to recognize and reward those individuals whose creative endeavors were particularly successful and were so recognized locally, and nationally. Patent Awards were established to recognize faculty, staff & students who engaged in creation of intellectual property (IP) that could help in the economic development of the country.
