Prince Megrin Data Mining Center (MEGDAM) was established at Prince Sultan University (PSU) in 2010. Faculty members from College of Computer Science and Information Systems (CCIS) proposed the idea for the center to the office of His Royal Highness, Prince Megrin Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud. The Center was established to further research in Data Mining and related areas along with increasing the awareness in the community.
