Welcome to the website of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Alfaisal University. Mathematics is critical to the understanding of scientific and engineering concepts as nature laws are best described in a mathematical language, and as engineering concepts are modeled and achieved through mathematical tools. The Department is devoted to professionally design and offer all mathematics courses that satisfy the study plans of the different colleges and the University Preparatory Program. To further improve the mathematical learning process, our department has successfully implemented its mathematical tutoring services through the Math Peer Tutoring Program (MPTP). This program provides an additional quality experience for our students, and it effectively enhances their learning at both the theoretical and the practical levels. Moreover, our students receive further support through the office hours of their instructors.

It is a real pleasure to be part of this vibrant and diverse academic community. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.

Vision
