Physical Science and Engineering Division
Our mission at the KAUST Physical Science and Engineering (PSE) Division is to push the boundaries of the scientific understanding of the most pressing challenges faced by society and to translate this scientific knowledge into new technologies critical to future generations.
With a strong footprint in the field of Energy, Environment, and Sustainability, our research and translational activities support the four priorities in Research, Development, and Innovation (RDIs) for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: Health and Wellness, Sustainable Environment and Supply of Essential Needs, Energy, and Industrial Leadership; and Economies of the Future.
Each day, the division’s creative, diverse, and dynamic research groups utilize KAUST’s cutting-edge resources to push the boundaries of their chosen fields.
The division offers seven academic programs, including Applied Physics, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Earth Science and Engineering, Energy Resources and Petroleum Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
I invite you, my fellow science devotees, to take the time to explore our website to learn more about our goals, programs, groundbreaking research, and our world-renowned faculty. Gilles Lubineau, Interim Dean, Physical Science and Engineering Division
