ORGANIZATION

King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (KFUPM) was officially established by Royal Decree on 23 September, 1963. The first students were admitted a year later, on 23 September, 1964, when 67 young men enrolled in what was then named the College of Petroleum and Minerals (CPM). Since that time, the University enrollment has grown to a level that is expected to exceed 10,000 by the 2020 academic year.

The President is the chief academic and executive officer of the University, which is run by the Board of Trustees. The current chairman of the Board is H.R.H. Prince Abdulaziz Salman, who is also serving as the Minister of Energy. The recent transformation of KFUPM's status from a government University to a Non-profit Institute is an initiative aimed towards achieving Saudi Vision 2030. This transformation, started in October 2019, is an outcome of planning to expand the non-profit sector by increasing its contribution to national growth, which is one of the core elements of Saudi Vision 2030.
