Home > Press > King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and Global Leaders Gather to Inaugurate World-Class Research University

Abstract:
We Welcome Your Coverage

WHAT: King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) holds its Inaugural Ceremony.

KAUST is opening its 36-million-square meter (8,900-acre) campus in September 2009, welcoming a founding faculty of more than 60 accomplished scientists and engineers from around the world and an equally diverse inaugural class of 345 graduate students to the shores of the Red Sea. This independent, merit-based university has already formed research collaborations with leading academic institutions and companies, and houses some of the world's most sophisticated research equipment and facilities, including the region's fastest supercomputer.

As the Inauguration will show, KAUST is a global gathering point of some of the best minds to solve challenging scientific and technological problems.
