Overview

Home to thousands of students, engineers, scientists, and faculty from around the globe, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, or KAUST, is an international graduate-level research university, providing students with the opportunity to access preeminent faculty and state-of-the-art labs and equipment. In terms of high-quality research output, KAUST is recognized as one of the fastest rising universities in the world.

Situated on the Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia, the university is considered as the country’s first mixed-gender university. Using English as the primary medium of instruction, it offers research and graduate training programs to a diverse population of graduate students. As a private research university, it integrates collaborative and distinctive research with graduate education to address global challenges related to energy, food, and the environment. Some of the programs offered by the university include subjects under engineering and technology, life sciences, and physical sciences.

Founded in 2009, the university serves as a catalyst for economic development and innovation in Saudi Arabia. Initially receiving an endowment of $10 billion during its opening, KAUST is known for its world-class facilities and equipment, enabling students to conduct experimental research in an empowering environment. The generous endowment allows the university to offer sustained exceptional educational quality and research excellence, giving it a competitive advantage in the long term.

KAUST is organized into three academic divisions: Computer, Electrical, and Mathematical Science and Engineering, Biological and Environmental Science and Engineering, and Physical Science and Engineering (PSE). Students, scientists, engineers, and faculty at the university are all expected to conduct curiosity-driven and goal-oriented research targeted at solving the world's most pressing science and technological challenges.

As the first mixed-gender university in Saudi Arabia, KAUST was established with the goal of modernizing the country’s deeply conservative society. Irrespective of national origins, students of KAUST are encouraged to uphold values of diversity, openness, integrity, and achievement. Unlike most universities in Saudi Arabia, KAUST allows female students to mix freely with male students. The university also does not require them to wear veils in coeducational classes. With a diverse and international university community, KAUST provides services and amenities that allow its students and faculty to experience an exceptional quality of life within the campus.

Furthermore, KAUST has several research centers that invigorate graduate education through creative and problem-solving approaches in a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment. Guided by its critical mission to modernize and diversify Saudi Arabia's economy, KAUST has established strategic partnerships with key institutions from all over the world to provide an outstanding and globally-competitive graduate education experience.
