The Deanship of Scientific Research and Graduate Studies was established in the school year 1996/1997. Its goal was to take care of matters pertaining to graduate students and scientific research. In 2014, the Deanship was split into two academic entities: a Faculty of Graduate Studies and a Deanship of Scientific Research, giving more attention to enabling graduate students to excel in their work. The Faculty of Graduate Studies accepts outstanding students into various graduate programs, based on top-of-the-line, up-to-date study-plans that meet the latest ever-developing international standards and market needs.

The Faculty of Graduate Studies, on the other hand, takes care of all the necessary graduate student needs including study-plans, research, supervision, the examining committees and research grants.
