|Origin and composition
King Abdulaziz University aims to be one of the leading universities in the field of educational technology. It provides an appropriate academic environment for students by providing them with state-of-the-art educational facilities and research laboratories. In 1425H/2004G His Excellency the President of King Abdulaziz University issued decision number 15178 to establish the General Department of Educational Services which includes the Permanent Committee for Educational Devices and Laboratories, the Department of Devices and Laboratories, and the Department of Museums and Classrooms. He then included the Scientific Equipment Maintenance Center and the Department of Educational Means within the General Department of Educational Services.
Since the tasks entrusted to the General Department of Educational Services have multiplied and branched out with the increase in the number of students, there is now an urgency to restructure the department to meet the latest developments, to enable it to meet the needs of different sectors and to perform its assigned tasks to the fullest. Accordingly, a new structure has been formed for the General Department of Educational Services.
