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 the 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.... [-]

About the Program

The Bioscience program plays a key role in tackling many of the global challenges being addressed by KAUST, with a general emphasis on what we term Adaptive Biology or the study of the mechanisms that allow organisms to adapt to their environment. The unique location of KAUST on the shores of the Red Sea makes comprehensive exploration of the biodiversity of this unique ecosystem and its potential biotechnology applications possible.

The Bioscience Program provides an introduction to living systems with courses in cell and molecular biology and biophysics. The program is comprised of two tracks of self-contained courses consisting of lectures, seminars and laboratory classes. Each course provides an in-depth review of the subject and examples of current research in the field.... [-]
