The rise of nations and the advancement of civilizations depend on their ability to scientific advance and the resulting technical progress. And this occurs when the nation has a strong will and a determination to engage in scientific research and pursue the scientific path of research and to be prepared to bear the burdens and consequences of that.
The educational institutions - above all universities - are the fertile environment for learning and education, and they are the lighthouses from which the light of science and knowledge shines to show the way for those who walk. Their teachers and scholars are the most qualified people to carry out tasks related to science and scientific research. That is why Saudi Electronic University has determined from the first moments to establish the Research and Studies Institute to be a lightning flame in the sky of the beloved nation and provides its services to all in the public and private sectors.
While the three primary roles of universities in any society are education, scientific research, and community service, then the existence of the Research and Studies Institute of SEU is a central pillar of the University to play its role in education, through holding training courses, lectures, and scientific seminars. And also to play its role in scientific research, through carrying out research and theoretical and applied studies and the books, courses, and publications it produces. As for the role related to community service is achieved through education and scientific research, but it is clearer through examining societal phenomena, concluding with scientific explanations for them, and proposing recommendations and solutions, as shown by providing consultations to those seeking them.
At Research and Studies Institute at SEU, we look forward to spreading scientific culture in Saudi society and developing tendencies and trends towards research, knowledge, and skills development to reach the beneficiaries to the intended level.
We work through an integrated team to draw up and develop plans to build partnerships with the public and private sectors, promote strategies and engage university cadres in providing knowledge, research, and training services in pursuit of the highest standards in the knowledge economy.
