The King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) is being built in Saudi Arabia as an international, graduate-level research university dedicated to inspiring a new age of scientific achievement in the Kingdom, the region, and beyond. As an independent, merit-based institution, KAUST will enable top researchers from around the globe and across all cultures to work together to solve challenging scientific and technological issues. Secured with a multibillion dollar endowment and an independent international Board of Trustees, KAUST will partner with the worldâ€™s leading universities, research institutions, and the private sector to become a major new contributor to the global network of collaborative research. The environmentally sensitive campus, located on 3,200 acres on the Red Sea at Rabigh, is set to open in September 2009.
