Short description

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) is being built in Saudi Arabia as an international, graduate-level research university dedicated to inspiring a new age of scientific achievement in the Kingdom that will also benefit the region and the world. KAUST is the realization of a decades-long vision of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. KAUST's core campus is located on more than 36 million square meters on the Red Sea at Thuwal – approximately 80 kilometers north of Saudi Arabia's second largest city, Jeddah. KAUST will pursue its research agenda through four strategic research thrusts focused on areas of science and technology that are important to Saudi Arabia, the region, and the world.
