Jubail Industrial College embodies an ethos of mutual respect whilst providing a caring environment enabling students to achieve personal success and to progress confidently into a world of endless possibilities both within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and abroad.

We at Jubail Industrial College believe that education includes the whole person and we aim to nurture both academic and non-academic lives of our students to ensure that young people get the opportunities to fully develop before joining the qualified workforce of the country.

Established in 1989, the history of the College goes back to late ‘80s when the Royal Charter of the Kingdom transformed the Jubail Human Resources Development Institute into an Industrial College. The institutional development of education and training for successful industrialization of the industrial city has been the cornerstone of manpower development by the city planner. 

By its presence at the heart of the largest petrochemical complex of the world, the college has been able to forge strong industry-education links, and continuously harness its expertise and resources to manpower development according to the national plans. With unwavering support of its parent organization, the Royal Commission for Jubail & Yanbu, the college enviably rose to the premier position of the Kingdom for technology education and training.

In our mission to provide quality education, emphasis was laid on preparing graduates for life and work; systematic monitoring, management reviews and quality audits ensured the programs remained current and relevant to the job market. We took strides in ensuring that our programs are benchmarked to international standards, our business processes carry quality hallmarks. To that end, the college worked for and successfully obtained accreditation of its educational programs by ABET, CTAB, and ACBSP while our business processes won ISO 9000 Quality Management System certification.

Our efforts to continuously improve via program evaluation, revision, implementation and stakeholders’ feedback provided the impetus to remaining close to the job markets.

Some of the current efforts of the college include a focus on renewable energy which is in light of the country’s pursuit for sustainable energy. Together with our overseas partners, we are working to build a solar power generation unit in the college, and bring solar education at the forefront of our development plan.

Also, the college is focused on providing certified professional training to its students and trainees. Partnership with American Welding Society (AWS) and International Society of Automation of USA (ISA) and being the approved training centres of are examples of JIC’s recent achievements in this area.

JIC continues to focus efforts in supporting the national Saudization objectives. In fact, our strategic aim to support the national Saudization program has paid huge dividends in bringing affluence and prosperity to the community. JIC’s competency based education and the industrial training programs have made it one of the country’s frontrunners for providing quality manpower in support of national development plans.

The college fosters an environment which promotes initiatives, teamwork, creativity, professionalism and continuous improvement. The quality of its faculty remains one of the strengths of its success as it recruits well qualified professionals throughout the year which has been the constant trademark of its operations.

Our world class facilities well-equipped to provide job-oriented practical experiences, computer labs with internet access, digital library, in-campus accommodation, business complexes, and recreational facilities make Jubail Industrial College one of the enviable places to live, study and work in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

As the managing director, I am proud to be a part of this community, the staff that brings it all together, I greatly value the role that other stakeholders play in the life of Jubail Industrial College.
