CSD Validated Course in the Middle East

Two courses at Prince Sultan University in Saudi Arabia have been awarded CSD Validated status.

The courses delivered by the Department of Interior Design Engineering are ‘Autodesk Revit’ and ‘Evidence Based Design’, both enjoying popularity amongst interior architecture students.

Prince Sultan University was originally founded in 1999 as Prince Sultan Private College, but, in 2003, the Ministry of Higher Education declared it to be a university. It was inaugurated by HRH Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud who was the Deputy Premier, Minister of Defense and Aviation, and Inspector-General.

PSU is a non-profit institution established in Riyadh by Al-Riyadh Philanthropic Society for Science and licensed by the Ministry of Higher Education. PSU is the first private University in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Within its mission statement it seeks to establish international partnerships and to promote professional growth and as such there is great synergy with the Society’s vision and strategy that has enabled this collaboration.

CSD Validated Course status is awarded to CPD modules, training courses and online study programmes and is one of four awards that are made within the CSD Course Endorsement Programme (CEP).

Full details of all of the CEP awards and courses within the programme can be found in Find-a-Course on this website.
