Organization profile

The Department of Life Sciences, in early 2021, was transformed into Department of Bioengineering at KFUPM to provide higher education, fundamental and applied research in the field of bioengineering and biotechnology. Bioengineering is a relatively new multidiscipline that combines biology with many aspects of engineering fields such as chemical, electrical, mechanical and computer engineering. The department is working on delivering a bachelor's program in Bioengineering for undergraduate students which is of interest to many relevant entities that will serve the Kingdom's strategic options.
