Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University

Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University (PMU) is a private educational institution in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia. Established in 2006, the university was founded and named after former Eastern province governor, Prince Mohammad bin Fahd. It is accredited by multiple organizations, such as the National Commission for Academic Accreditation and Assessment and the Ministry of Education. At present, PMU is regarded as one of the top engineering universities in the Eastern Province.

Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University Key Statistics

PMU is composed of six colleges. These colleges are the College of Architecture and Design, College of Computer Engineering and Science, College of Engineering, and the College of Human Studies and Sciences. It offers more than 20 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, including business administration, engineering, interior design, and computer science.

Currently, the university has over 3,000 undergraduates and postgraduates. They are being supervised by nearly 400 academic staff members. The PMU campus is also divided symmetrically to provide facilities to male and female students.

Other Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University key statistics are its student services that maintain and recognize the religious and cultural traditions of the Kingdom. It also has multiple libraries, including the Male Library and the Female Library.

Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University Research

PUM also has dynamic research teams, which are responsible for delivering high-quality research outputs consistently. These research teams are funded through grants and fellowships from the Rector, the Faculty Research Committee, and external organizations.

The university has conducted comprehensive research projects in various fields but is widely known for its work in materials science, mechanics, and nanofluids. Its researchers also get invited to international research conferences and symposiums, such as ITEC: IEEE Transportation Electrification Conference and Expo, AINA: Advanced Information Networking and Applications, and ECCE: European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics.

Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University’s most popular research output is Subedi et al.’s (2008) “Probing cold dense nuclear matter,” which was published in Science and has 477 citations to date. Its second most cited output is Sheikholeslami and Chamkha’s (2017) “Influence of Lorentz forces on nanofluid forced convection considering Marangoni convection,” which was published in the Journal of Molecular Liquids and has so far been cited 239 times.

Meanwhile, its third most cited output is Kasaeian et al.’s (2017) “Nanofluid flow and heat transfer in porous media: A review of the latest developments.” This article which attempts to find innovative solutions to improve the performance of energy devices through heat transfer enhancement was published in the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer and has been cited 231 times by far.

Other most cited Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University research outputs include Selimefendigil et al.’s (2016) “MHD mixed convection and entropy generation of nanofluid filled lid-driven cavity under the influence of inclined magnetic fields imposed to its upper and lower diagonal triangular domains” (Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, 190 citations) and Sudarsana Reddy and Chamkha “Soret and Dufour effects on MHD convective flow of Al2O3–water and TiO2–water nanofluids past a stretching sheet in porous media with heat generation/absorption” (Advanced Powder Technology, 184 citations).
