Electrical Engineering

Research innovation, multiculturalism, and the power of discovery is everywhere at KAUST—a modern research university designed to allow physical and human networks to operate without regard for organizational or national boundaries. KAUST engages students, faculty and researchers in advancing science and technology focusing on issues of regional and global significance. 

KAUST’s Electrical Engineering Department (EE) combines collaborative inquiry with state-of-the-art experimental labs, advanced nanofabrication and characterization lab, supercomputing and visualization facilities to provide a stimulating and challenging environment for researchers and graduate students alike. 

As an independent and merit-based institution and one of the best-endowed universities in the world, KAUST intends to become a major new contributor to the global network of collaborative research.  In line with this mission, EE emphasizes research in science and technology applications to solve problems that impact social advancement, economic development, and the quality of everyday life worldwide via two major tracks: (i) Electro-Physics and (ii) Systems. The interdisciplinary nature of EE demonstrated by faculty spans across these labs, the University, and into industry.
