The University (accredited by the Saudi Ministy of Education but not by any international accreditation body) was inaugurated in April 2006 and was formally opened in Oct 8, 2008 with bachelor’s degrees in 17 academic programs with some courses taught in English (many are being taught in Arabic currently). It is divided into three colleges: College of Engineering – Civil and Mechanical for males, and Interior Design for females), College of Business (both genders- but in segregated programs with most of the faculty on the male side) and College of Information Technology (both genders). Additionally it offers an EMBA program in conjunction with Mashreicht School of Management (Netherlands)[2] As of this date, the affiliation with Mashreicht has been terminated by Mashreicht.

All university buildings were planned for completion in 2008, and the school plans to have a total enrollment of 5,500 by 2012. The university physical plant is not complete as of the summer of 2009. All Administration buildings are on the men’s campus and are generally off-limits to the women- faculty, staff and students. There is a small young library. The men’s side of the library (it is also segregated) is twice the size of the women’s.

The design is putatively based on the American model for academic programs and administrative organization, and was developed in conjunction with the non-profit Texas International Education Consortium which organizes experts from the 32 public universities in Texas.

    I wish you good luck with the application process. Please be advised that I’m not involved in the university or with Mohammad Bin Fahd. This website is dedicated to the prince and is a source of information about him but is not owned or run by him.

    Hi Ahmed, I believe international students are allowed to apply for admission. As per the PMU website, it says the following.
    http://student.pmu.edu.sa/admissionproa.asp

    High School Graduates (Saudis and Non-Saudis)

    You might want to contact the admissions office to verify that. They can be reached at
