King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST)

King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST) is a private, international graduate-level institution located on the Red Sea. KAUST advances science and technology through research and education and serves as a catalyst for innovation, economic development and social prosperity in Saudi Arabia and around the world. The interdisciplinary research environment and active international collaborations enable KAUST to pursue large scale challenges — such as energy, water, food, and the environment.

Integrated Academic Divisions and Research Centers

Since opening in 2009, KAUST faculty, students, postdocs and researchers continue to pursue both curiosity-driven and goal-oriented research through integrated Academic Divisions and Research Centers. To foster an environment of co-existence between curiosity and applied research, KAUST’s divisions invest in its people through a breadth of multiple disciplines in graduate research. Students enroll in master’s and doctoral degree programs within one of three divisions: Biological and Environmental Science and Engineering; Physical Science and Engineering; and Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering.


Simultaneously, KAUST’s 11 Research Centers invest in major projects and provide thematic focus for goal-oriented research. Additionally they invigorate graduate education by cultivating research teams towards solutions. Under this foundation, KAUST attracts graduate students who are passionate about how their ideas can change the world. KAUST’s large-scale Research Centers focus on the areas of clean combustion, solar energy, advanced membranes, extreme computing, desert agriculture, catalysis, upstream petroleum engineering, water desalination, computational bioscience, visual computing and the Red Sea.

Core Laboratories

KAUST also has nine Core Laboratories that provide technologically advanced facilities, training and service to KAUST faculty, students, researchers and industrial partners. One of the core labs is home to the Shaheen supercomputer, ranked among the top 10 most powerful supercomputers in the world in 2016.

Hub of Innovation

At the heart of KAUST's mission is the development of knowledge-based innovation and industrial clusters in Saudi Arabia. The integrated KAUST Research & Technology Park hosts leading international corporations and offers a wide array of strategically-connected innovation and economic development programs, including proof-of-concept and seed-funding resources, as well as support for incubation and acceleration of new businesses.

Live-Work-Play Lifestyle

More than just a university, KAUST is a residential community of approximately 7000 people who have come to KAUST from over 100 different countries. This live-work-play coastal town offers a one-of-a-kind collaborative learning environment and distinctive educational experience, making KAUST a destination for explorers and innovators from around the globe.
