The dean also emphasized the importance of students’ commitment to attending lectures, raising their academic achievement and making use of the resources provided by the state.

Moreover, the dean encouraged the students to make use of the training courses offered for free by Training and Employment Unit at the college. These courses would sharpen the students’ skills and engage them easily in the labor market. The dean stressed the importance of these courses for building the students’ skills and distinguishing them from other students in the light of the increasing competition for jobs, especially that these courses are linked to the students’ skill record. He also emphasized that the students should benefit from Academic Advising Unit by visiting their academic advisors as this will increase their knowledge of graduation requirements. On his part, Dr. Sogher Al-Sogher, Vice-dean of Academic and Educational Affairs highlighted the most important issues in the students’ academic life, such as the need for increasing their awareness of the elective courses and the necessity of passing them in accordance with the study plan which shows the distribution of these courses among four semesters, following the completion of the Common First Semester as well as learning about the academic rules and regulations of the university which the students follow during their study period at the college.
