Since the beginning of the third millennium, King Abdulaziz University (KAU) has witnessed developments and achievements of great pride.
At the beginning of the 21st Century, the institution took active steps towards globalization with many faculty programs obtaining academic accreditation from international bodies. In addition, its development of a strategic five-year plan based on research and academic excellence, and the transfer of technology, gave the university a decent place among distinguished universities, resulting in its appearance in world rankings and even a steady, advanced pace progress as many top international institutions of its kind.
By the end of the first decade of our century, the university took a significant step towards benefiting from international experiences in the fields of university achievement (higher education, scientific research, and community service) when the idea of establishing an international advisory board came about. This was to include leaders of world-class universities for our enlightenment through their valuable experiences in development.
The purpose of the present webpage is to demonstrate the various activities of the above mentioned International Advisory Board (IAB) and to show the achievements made by our university through activating their recommendations. I am pleased to praise the effort of the Secretariat-General of the IAB in highlighting the work and achievement of our team. I hope that the desired benefit from this webpage will be realized.
