The Research Institute, a cornerstone of applied research activities at KFUPM created a strong research base and was recognized for solving critical scientific and technical problems as well as working on converting knowledge into practice. Working in collaboration with the faculty from academic departments and researchers from other research entities.
Today, the university has completely overhauled both the research structure, and the programs. Our new research activities are designed to amplify the impact on society, solve challenging problems, and enrich knowledge for all humanity.
One of the most important aspects of the revised structure is the emphasis on interdisciplinary research. We believe that it takes the combined knowledge of multiple disciplines to make truly impactful research. Our new research centers are composed of multiple disciplines, and of researchers from different departments.
