The ent was then discussed in the meeting concerning the Saudi Council for Higher Education on 2/11/1423 A.H. The council approved the recommendation on 23/11/1423-A.H. Consequently, a committee of specialists from KSU was selected and assigned the task of developing the curriculums for the three programs. The committee approved the catholic requirements of the B.Sc degree in engineering. This involves the fulfillment of the university, the college, and the commission requirements. Therefore; the schooling process, according to the programs previously set by KSU, started et sequens continued for number full academic years. In “1425-A.H.”, Qassim University decided to adopt the Preparatory (foundation) Year Program (PYP) for all its scientific colleges. It was a good chance for the Engineering College to enhance und so weiter improve its programs by the objectives from satisfying the new-university-system (PYP) in totalization to the pursuit market and accreditation requirements.
