ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Environmental Science and Engineering Program (EnSE) prepares students to work on many of the world’s most pressing challenges. There is a worldwide concern with the availability of clean water; EnSE examines methods to purify and reuse water, as well as to reduce contamination of existing reserves. The focus of the program is on examining the impact of humans on our environment through resource exploitation; including over-consumption, land degradation, and pollution of water. The results of these efforts may offer solutions to water scarcity, soil contamination.

This program comprises four tracks: Water Quality, Chemistry, and Treatment; Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology; Environmental Hydrology and Fluid Mechanics; and Materials for Environmental Science and Engineering. Students entering the program enroll in a set of core courses and then take specialty courses in one of the three major tracks. The remaining courses are technical electives. The three tracks together cover the most important areas in Environmental Science and Engineering, and the core-plus specialty courses and electives will equip a student for a successful and productive career in these fields.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

​The goal of the Plant Science Program is to develop a thorough understanding of plant growth and function under challenging environmental conditions, such as those found in Saudi Arabia. The fundamental biology of plants is studied at a range of levels (e.g. genomic, proteomic, metabolomics), and the interactions of plants with their environment, both abiotic (heat, salt, and drought) and biotic (pathogens and symbionts) are investigated. Application of this knowledge will allow development of plants with enhanced tolerance to environmental stresses and help to establish sustainable agriculture systems in arid regions of the world.

MASTERS DEGREE

​​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.... [-]

Masters in Environmental Studies in Thuwal in Saudi Arabia. ABOUT THE PROGRAM The Marine Science (MarS) Program takes advantage of KAUST’s location on the Red Sea, a living laboratory with great potential for exciting science. The program addresses the biology and ecology of the multitude of marine life forms. There is an intentional focus on the local Red Sea system, both as a primary study system and as a system with which general concepts from other marine systems can be compared. The goal of the Marine Science Program is to develop an integrated understanding of the Red Sea’s ecosystem as well as marine ecosystems in general, including fundamental biology at the molecular and genomic levels, symbiosis with algae and prokaryotes (Bacteria and Archaea), associated communities of fish and corals and the physical and chemical environment that impacts and shapes them. This understanding could have an impact on global carbon cycling, endangered species and how we manage the harvesting of resources from the Oceans. MASTERS DEGREE ... [-]
