Marine Science at KAUST

Marine Science focuses on the Red Sea—one of the most complex, diverse, and underexplored ecosystems in the world. Because of its location, the Red Sea contains some of the northernmost coral reefs in the world, which have adapted to high temperatures and salinity and hold potential cures for coral diseases like bleaching in other marine environments. The program’s goal is to impact areas such as global carbon cycling, endangered species, and the harvesting of food from the oceans, through an integrated understanding of this ecosystem.

The program covers subjects like marine life, marine microbiology, pelagic ecology, molecular ecology, and marine resource conservation.

For more details, visit the Biological and Environmental Sciences & Engineering Division website, for program curricula visit the Marine Science Program website.
