Research Themes

As a community of scholars at KFUPM, we bring our expertise to bear on the key questions in our age in the disciplines of Engineering, Sciences, and Economics.  We have identified five strategic research themes and related thematic priority areas to achieve this effectively and economically. The thematic priorities are built on a legacy of research, but KFUPM researchers are still investigating novel concepts, inquiring, and creating and disseminating new knowledge in order to benefit Saudi Arabia and the rest of the world.

Industrial & Manufacturing

Digitization & Technology
