About the Program

The Applied Mathematics and Computational Sciences (AMCS) program educates students to construct and solve Mathematical and Computational models of real-world problems. Two-degree programs are offered: the M.S. degree (under either a Thesis or a Non-Thesis option) and the Ph.D. degree. Admission to one-degree program does not guarantee transfer to another.

The Applied Math and Computational Science program offers specializations in three distinct directions (called “Tracks”): Applied Mathematics (AM), Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) and Statistics (ST).

The requirements for the different specializations may vary and are outlined below. All students in the M.S. program are guided by a Faculty advisor to develop their program of study.... [-]

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The program is rich with opportunities, for both M.S. and Ph.D. students, with a focus on modern computational and advanced data-analysis methods to study geophysical problems associated with atmospheric processes and ocean circulation, oil exploration and reservoir modeling, earthquake processes and crustal deformation. Students in this program receive broad training in numerical methods, mathematical modeling, and geophysics. M.S. students have an option to participate in scientific research activities that include computational and mathematical modeling or field-study projects (M.S. with thesis). Ph.D. candidates in the program conduct original research.

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. Ph.D. DEGREE ... [-]
