The KAUST ranking in the GPA system is Top 50 / Tier 3.
The King Abdullah University of Science & Technology, in Saudi Arabia, is a recently established (2009) but tremendously well-funded, staffed and equipped institution of higher learning with the a recognized potential for global impact. The institution, although enjoying name recognition and tremendous funding (allowing to hire outstanding faculty members), KAUST may suffer from the controversial image of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and of its desert climate.
Overall, KAUST is an outstanding national and regional institution, with global ambitions, noted for its excellent communication, and based on these factors is ranked among the World’s Top 50 with GPA Tier 2-3 status.
Please contact the institution for more information.
