Prince Sultan University is directly linked to one of the major milestone changes in Saudi Arabian higher education, namely the successful introduction of private higher education to the country when it was needed the most. PSU is firmly committed to providing quality education with the highest international standards. The emphasis at PSU is not on the quantity of students and programmes but on the quality of our graduates as these are in high demand in the marketplace. Thus, our undergraduate programmes aim to produce the next generation of technically savvy professionals who will contribute to the progress of the Saudi Vision 2030 in the fields of engineering, humanities, law, architecture, computing, and business and showcase adroitness in the use of modern technology.
Our vision is to be recognised as a model of excellence in private higher education both in the country and the MENA region. The academic curricula are carefully designed and based on international standards. We offer our students a unique educational experience in a supportive learning environment of scholastic excellence.
The university welcomes you to begin that march via a challenging and fruitful academic life en route to a promising career and bright future.

About Prince Sultan University
Prince Sultan University – the first non-profit university in Saudi Arabia – was established in 1998 by the people of Riyadh, spearheaded by the university’s nurturer since its fruition and the individual who pushed it to become one of the world’s best educational facilities today, HRH King Salman Bin Abdulaziz. Celebrating the late Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz’s return from his therapeutic trip in 1998, Prince of Riyadh (at the time) HRH Salman Bin Abdulaziz was sure to convert this occasion into a project for growth, pushing it to become a trailblazing cultural structure that provides future generations with great educational benefits in preparation for their professional lives following their studies.
Since its birth, Prince Sultan University has been home to excellence through manifesting educational brilliance, a structure that takes every opportunity to prove itself a leading institution through a plethora of continued achievements. Achievements include the recent -and first- International Conference on Sustainability: Developments and Innovations (ICSDI2022) and the 7th International Conference on Data Science and Machine Learning Applications (CDMA2022).
This institution continues to meet the highest excellence standards set by various accreditation entities, having recently acquired international accreditation from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) and Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) for its computer science and information systems programmes.
