The Center organizes scientific meetings on regular basis that provide a forum to consider new materials research projects within the Center. Normally such meetings are organized by the senior investigators in the form of either symposia or workshop. The symposia constitutes one-day meeting to address the topics of industrial interest whereas the workshop runs from one day to several days to address substantial scientific issues in materials-related fields. In the past, the College of Engineering hosted several workshops and meetings at the department of chemical engineering on materials engineering and corrosion protection. The College has also organized the first Saudi Engineering Conference, a strong component of which was related to utilization of engineering materials.
