PC Lab

Overview: Computing Power at Your Fingertips

Welcome to our state-of-the-art PC Labs, designed to be the epicenter of computational learning and research for undergraduate students in the Chemical Engineering department. Located conveniently in building 3, rooms 120 & 121, and supplemented by a specialized graduate lab in building 16, our labs offer the computational resources you need to excel.

Software Suite: The Tools You Need

Benefit from an expansive software ecosystem tailored for chemical engineers. Our labs are equipped with:

  • ASPEN HYSYS: For process simulation.
  • MATLAB: For numerical computing and data analysis.
  • MATHEMATICA: For symbolic computations and advanced mathematics.
Purpose-Built Facilities: More than Just a Computer Room

Each lab features approximately 20 advanced PCs with dual monitors to maximize productivity. Here's how the labs cater to different courses:

  • CHE 212 (Introduction to Chemical Engineering Computing): A perfect setting for demonstrations and hands-on practice.
  • CHE 495 (Senior Design): An optimal environment for executing your capstone projects.
Additional Resources: ICTC

Beyond our departmental labs, the Information and Communication Technology Center (ICTC) provides numerous computing facilities accessible to all KFUPM students for coursework or internet-based research.

Our PC Labs are more than just computer rooms; they are interactive learning environments designed to foster both academic and project-based learning, setting you up for success in your engineering journey.
