Student Finals Harvesting the Work of an Academic Year

Our dear students -- the future of this nation and the backbone of our country -- you are our hope and our dreams. Those that believe in success do not believe in giving in to the obstacles and challenges faced through life. During these critical days, educational institutions around the Kingdom will commence the final exam period. This time of the year brings the necessity for hard work to attain optimal learning objectives. As a result, many students complain that they are not able to study and suffer stress and anxiety which prevents them from achieving their desired goals.moor

Of noteworthy mention, three academic programs were recently accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) at the College of Engineering and College of Computer Science.   On this auspicious occasion, Vice Rector of Academic Development and Quality, Prof. Merzin Al-Shahrani, asserted that King Khalid University has dedicated substantial manpower and resources to ensure that programs selected for accreditation will meet the strictest educational standards. He extended his sincere gratitude to King Khalid University Rector, Prof. Falleh Al-Solamy, for his ongoing support and guidance in the development of quality programs in accord with Vision 2030, noting that the accredited programs will foster the conditions necessary for students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and capabilities that employers need in our knowledge-driven economy. Vice Rector Al-Shahrani took this opportunity to thank the employees of the Deanship of Academic Development and Quality for their efforts in cooperating with the various colleges, improving the university programs, and obtaining the full programmatic accreditation.   The NCAAA accreditation process focuses on eleven standards which are divided into five key areas, including: Institutional context (the mission and objectives – program administration – management of program quality assurance); Quality of teaching and learning; Student learning support (student support and management services - learning resources); Infrastructure support (facilities and equipment - financial planning & management – employment process); Social contribution (scientific research - relationships with the community).
