ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Electrical Engineering (EE) plays an important role in the fields of engineering, applied physics, and computational sciences. A significant portion of advancement in technology originates from cutting-edge research performed in the field of EE. At KAUST the EE program is bound to this tradition: It aims for preparing students for a multitude of professional paths and advancing world-class research and research-based education through interdisciplinary partnering within engineering and science.
The EE degree program has two (2) major tracks:
The Electro-Physics track encompasses technical areas of solid-state electronics, microsystems, electromagnetics, and photonics, while the Systems track encompasses communications, networking, signal processing, computer vision, and control.
Master’s Degree Requirements It is the sole responsibility of the student to plan her/his graduate program in consultation with her/his advisor. Students are required to meet all deadlines. Students should be aware that most core courses are offered only once per year.
The Master’s Degree (M.S.) is awarded upon successful completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours. A minimum GPA of 3.0 must be achieved to graduate. Individual courses require a minimum of a ‘B-‘ for course credit. Students are expected to complete the M.S. degree in three semesters and one Summer Session.
