​GRAD​UATE PROGRAM COORDINATORS (GPC'S):

The Physical Science and engineering Division's Graduate Program Coordinator's are here to address students academic questions, evaluate their progress, and update them on current university policies and procedures. They are the first point of contact for all academic life and KAUST-related questions or issues. They are the liaison between students and faculty, the Registrar Office, Graduate Affairs, Admissions, the Associate Dean and the Dean.  

There is currently no Graduate Program Coordinator for the Earth Science and Engineering Graduate Program, please contact any of the other Graduate Program Coordinator's listed below for any queries related to this Program.​
