The Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Sciences and Engineering (CEMSE) Division is one of the three Divisions of KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology).
Academic Programs and Research
Research in the CEMSE Division clusters into four main areas and offers four degree-granting programs:
Applied Mathematics & Computational Sciences Program
Mathematical analysis, including modeling and simulations with applications to physical, chemical, biological and environmental processes; materials science; oil exploration and reservoir management.
Computer Science Program
Computer science and big data, including bioinformatics; and visual and extreme computing.
Electrical and Computer Engineering Program
Electrical and computer engineering, including the development of communication networks; CMOS integrated circuits; electronic and optics/photonics devices; micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS); various types of sensors, measurement and detection devices; as well as functional- and nano-materials.
Statistics and data science, including climate science, environmental statistics, and biostatistics.
Research Centers and Initiatives
Research in the CEMSE division is driven by independent faculty labs and Research Centers with which Faculty can affiliate to perform applied, goal-oriented research.
In addition, the Division undertakes special exploratory and collaborative research initiatives.
