A Global University
King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) is an international graduate-level research university dedicated to advancing science and technology through breakthrough bold and collaborative research.
KAUST was built to address scientific challenges of regional and global significance through interdisciplinary research. The university promotes a culture of cross-discipline collaboration and encourages faculty to break down the barriers between fields. The University's matrix structure is uniquely designed to support this vision.
KAUST has recruited faculty from many of the best universities and research institutions in the world. The expectations of faculty are the same as any research-intensive university: to make high-impact scientific discoveries through bold and ambitious initiatives and to provide outstanding education to graduate students.
KAUST offers a rare opportunity to be part of a new, ambitious university with a clear vision. One of the main attractions for faculty is the excellent support structure from technology, facilities and economic development expertise. This blend of custom-built infrastructure enables new ideas to move faster and further than in a traditional setting.
