Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE)

Aims and Scope

Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) plays an important role in the fields of engineering, applied physics and computational sciences. A significant portion of advancement in technology originates from cutting-edge research performed in the field of ECE. At KAUST the ECE program is bound to this tradition: it aims for preparing students for a multitude of professional paths and advancing world-class research and research-based education through interdisciplinary partnering within engineering and science.

The ECE program encompasses technical areas of solid-state electronics, microsystems, electromagnetics, photonics, communication, networking, signal processing, computer vision, power electronics and control.
