About The Center

Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Center for Futuristic Studies has been conceptualized as part of Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University (PMU) and is aligned with its mission, vision and values. It was established in 2019 and reports directly to the Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Currently, PMU has a large number of faculty with a diverse array of specializations in areas that are consistent with the mission of the center for Futuristic Studies. These individuals have independently established research groups, planned quantitative and qualitative research activities, attended conferences, and published in scholarly journals. Their expertise encompasses all disciplines within PMU’s Colleges and Departments (College of Engineering, College of Law, College of Business Administration, College of Computer Engineering and Science, and College of Sciences and Human Studies). The center utilizes existing skills, expertise, and experience to offer an interdisciplinary approach to issues of local and international relevance.

Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Center for Futuristic Studies conducts research through a team of interested faculty and students in areas that benefit KSA and in line with its Vision 2030. The center focuses its research on topics related to the future of education, of the environment and the resources, the future of businesses, of public policies, design and technologies or medicine. Multidisciplinary collaboration is necessary to ensure the most adequate research input and output. The center also welcomes research topics in the field, and has opened international collaboration with the World Federation for Futures Studies, announcing joint projects and programs, as well as a MENA Chapter for the WFSF at the PMU campus.

In alignment with PMU mission and vision, Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Center for Futuristic Studies aims to position itself among the leading academic institutions in the Middle East as a research-led center. Since PMU already promotes research as a vital part of its core mission, the aim of the center is to focus research on topics and issues that are relevant to the MENA region, Europe, the Americas and Asia. The center’s members work on building a strong network of partner institutions to ensure viable and productive exchanges with local and international communities and institutions. Its modus operandi include educational outreach, problem-solving activities and knowledge sharing.
