Our research is undertaken with industry leading partners to solve high-impact and real-world problems. Importantly, our unique approach and location means we undertake research that always has an industry need. The College is adjacent to both Saudi Aramco (the world’s largest oil and gas company) and to the Dhahran Techno Valley (DTV), a research park where leading petroleum-related companies have built R&D facilities to support their business. Working closely with prestigious companies, such as Saudi Aramco, Schlumberger, Halliburton, Honeywell, Baker Hughes and GE, we offer access to resources and knowledge that is both unique in the world and provides distinctiveness in our approach.
It is through our extensive industry networks and connections that we secure access to funding and resources that support the research projects that are and will make a difference for our corporate partners and to the petroleum industry as a whole.
In addition to hosting a wide variety of research facilities, Dhahran Techno Valley has also created a business ecosystem that includes an ‘incubator’ for new companies; industrial consulting; legal, financial and patent guidance; a prototyping center; and entrepreneurial training and education. This makes CPG, through its relations with DTV, a ‘one-stop shop’ in commercial support for faculty and students alike.
