Externally funded projects have been awarded to faculty from Saudi Aramco, BOEING, ABB, ARABIO, ALANOUD, SAGIA, SHELL, ALJOMEH, MOE, NG, IZON, & QNRF. This is a promising development in that it shows that faculty members are going after a wide range of funding sources. Prominence in research is vital to realizing the University's aims of becoming a principal educational institution and a role 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. Key stakeholders for Alfaisal include for example KACST, KFSHRC and Boeing.

Career
