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
Research Area

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
Research Area

Computer science and big data, including bioinformatics; and visual and extreme computing.

Electrical Engineering Program
Research Area

Electrical 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 Program
Research Area

Statistics and data science, including climate science, environmental statistics, and biostatistics.

Research in the CEMSE Division is driven by independent faculty labs and three Research Centers with which Faculty can affiliate to perform applied, goal-oriented research. Centers affiliated with the Division include:​
In addition, from time to time, the Division undertakes special exploratory and collaborative research initiatives, currently in:
  • Sensors,
  • Uncertainty Quantification,
  • TIC Solid State Lighting at KAUST,
  • Center of Excellence for NEOM Research at KAUST.
