Ph.D. in Earth Science and Engineering King Abdullah University of Science and Technology
The program is rich with opportunities, for both M.S. and Ph.D. students, with a focus on modern computational and advanced data-analysis methods to study geophysical problems associated with atmospheric processes and ocean circulation, oil exploration and reservoir modeling, earthquake processes and crustal deformation. Students in this program receive broad training in numerical methods, mathematical modeling, and geophysics. M.S. students have an option to participate in scientific research activities that include computational and mathematical modeling or field-study projects (M.S. with thesis). Ph.D. candidates in the program conduct original research.
