King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (KFUPM) was officially established by Royal Decree on 5 Jumada I, 1383 H. (23 September 1963). The first students were admitted a year later. On 23 September 1964, when 67 young men enrolled in what was then the College of Petroleum & Minerals (CPM). Since that time, the University enrollment has grown to more than 8,000 students. Several significant events have marked the University's growth. In 1971, at the first graduation ceremony, four men received their baccalaureate degrees in engineering. In 1975, the College of Petroleum & Minerals became the University of Petroleum & Minerals, a change both in name and academic status. In 1986, the University was renamed: King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals. The successful management of Saudi Arabia's vast petroleum and mineral resources poses a complex and exciting challenge for scientific, technical, and management education in the Kingdom. To meet this challenge, the University has adopted advanced training in the fields of science, engineering, and management as one of its goals in order to promote leadership and service in the Kingdom's petroleum and mineral industries. The University also furthers knowledge through research in these fields.
