At the Architectural Engineering program at PSU, we estimate the diversity and academic excellence of all the members of our community. Faculty, staff and students are coming from more than ten different nationalities. The learning process is enriched by engaging with people of diverse cultures. The students are involved in several formative activities in and out of the classroom: field trips, lectures, workshops, community service, students clubs.
Today the dimension of any environmental issue — rapid urbanization; infrastructural systems; the disparity of resources; climatic conditions; material performance; etc — requires solutions that have to be local and global, pragmatic yet evocative. If we want a better present, we have to discover the moment where tradition turns into innovation. The program is fully committed to supporting the Saudi Vision 2030.
The Architectural Engineering program at PSU offers a solid preparation based on the combination of disciplines—architecture, urban planning, technology, history and theory, landscape design — applied in our studio-based courses. Our students benefit from a seven-months internship and, in the majority of the case, they receive a job offer at the end of the training period.
We educate future citizens not only architects.
