Abstract

This paper is an attempt to provide an answer to the question of which type of higher engineering education is really needed in Saudi Arabia? The paper discusses the skills required by the local industry at the engineers level. Engineering curricula and the training required to meet these requirements are discussed. Possible areas of deficiencies in the current programs are outlined. It then recommends that, under the present conditions, engineering technology education is more appropriate. Recommendations for possible improvements in the current engineering curricula are presented.
