Months of entry
The Applied Physics (AP) Program is a new interdisciplinary degree program at KAUST which started in Fall 2019. Courses in the Applied Physics Program are selected and designed to provide students with the knowledge-base and intellectual foundation required to advance scientific research and engineering solutions in applied physics.
We invite you to explore our website to find out more about graduate study programs and faculty research groups.
The Master's Degree (M.Sc.) is awarded upon successful completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours. Students are expected to complete the M.Sc. degree within 3 to 4 semesters (including one summer semester, i.e., 12 to 18 months in total). The M.Sc. degree is offered for traditional full-time students and could be a terminal M.Sc., as well as a gateway to the Ph.D. program. All M.Sc. students are expected to complete a capstone experience that includes thesis preparation and oral defense. The non-thesis option is not supported in the AP Program.
