Message of the Head of the Department
Praise be to Allah and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
The idea of establishing the Basic Science Department resulted from the university administration's belief in the importance of better preparing the students for basic science to achieve success in their academic lives in accordance with the university quality program.
Here, we welcome you to the Department website, one of the scientific departments at the deanship, which aims to enable students to acquire the basic knowledge and the basic skills in basic sciences, and to help and encourage active student participation in various scientific activities. The department also aims at helping students integrate positively in the academic community and discovering talented students in order to care for them at their respective faculties.
Our students follow two streams, the scientific and the medical, in which they study courses of physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics for science faculties while mathematics is taught for social sciences faculties.
This is achieved through up-to-date teaching methods performed by highly qualified teachers.
Dear students, the Preparatory Year wishes you the best and hopes that this year of study will be a wonderful start of a distinctive academic life rich in information and skills that will assist you in future studies at this university. We assure you that your comments and suggestions are warmly welcome. We pray for your success.
