Organization profile

Electrical and Computer Engineering plays an essential role in the fields of engineering, applied physics, and computational sciences. A significant portion of advancement in technology originates from innovative research performed in the field of ECE with spill-over effects in the domain of energy conservation, Internet of Everything (IoT), telecommunications and robotics.

The program offers the opportunity to specialize in one of two distinct tracks.

  • Electro-Physics

The Electro-Physics track encompasses technical areas of solid-state electronics, microsystems, electromagnetics photonics.

  • Systems

The Systems track focuses on communications, signal processing, and control.

The interdisciplinary research carried out in the individual STAT Faculty Research Groups is complemented by the KAUST Core Lab facilities, the Research Centers affiliated to CEMSE and spans across the University and into international collaborations with industry and research institutions.
