Dar Al-Hekma College

Dar Al-Hekma College opened in September 1999. It is expected to reach a total enrollment of 1500 students in 2005. The College’s modern campus is on 25,000 square meters of land in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Academic programs include a college preparatory program, a general education core curriculum, and academic majors in interior design, business information systems, and special education. The College plans to develop broader specializations in other areas of study such as e-business and health care. All courses are taught in English except Arabic and Islamic Studies.

Through its current three undergraduate academic programs, the College offers BA and BS degrees to a current student body of approximately 200.

TIEC was the primary contractor (beginning in January 1998) responsible for the complete design of all programmatic, organizational, and operational aspects of this new private non-profit college for women in Jeddah. The design utilized the American model for academic programs and administrative organization. More than 20 project teams involved over 75 experts from Texas universities and elsewhere and an equal number of Saudi experts to develop the academic programs, administrative structure and procedures, information and communications technology systems, and library and support services. Initial policies and procedures were developed for admitting students, hiring faculty and staff, and planning and managing college operations.
