The establishment of Majmaah Univesrity, which is deemed as a newly established one, came as a result of the decree of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud and the Prime Minister and Chairman of Higher Education on Ramadan 3rd, 1430 - 24th of August, 2009 to establish Majmaah University along with three other universities in Dammam city, Kharj province and Shaqr’a province.
Mjamaah University is established to serve a wide area including Majmmah, Zulfi, Remah, Ghat and Hawtat Sudair. It will also help in achieving the Ministry of Higher Education’s objective in expanding the university education across the country. Therefore, Majmaah University will meet the growing number of high school graduates in the region which will reduce the pressure on universities in big cities. Another significant reason for the establishment of Mjmaah University is the value it will add to the people of the region in various aspects including social, cultural and awareness service. Inevitably, this shall help in upgrading the level of performance appraisal of government sectors via providing advanced courses and consultations. With regard to scientific research, the University will provide programs of high quality that will be in compatible with the University strategic objectives.
The royal decree no: 194/A on Zul Hejjah 30th, 1430 – 17th of October, 2009 to appoint Dr. Khalid Sa’ad Al-Mugren as the Rector of Majmaah University with higher rank accelerated the development process at the University. Dr. Al-Mugren focused on developing the existence colleges as well as building new ones in order to increase the number of majors that will meet the market demands.
