The growing importance of sustainable management is acquiring the marine and coastal ecosystems in state policies, is demonstrated by the numerous international agreements signed in recent years.

Many coastal municipalities, responsible for ensuring the health of its beaches and coasts, require increasingly, the presence of a specialized figure coastal management and resources, both biological and tourism. To this growing need for trained personnel must be added the lack of training plans training in the various state oceanographic disciplines, being very common specialization through postgraduate training.

The program in Marine Science and Technology is focused on the practical applications that occur in coastal systems. In this regard, a review of the various oceanographic disciplines so you have an idea of ​​unbounded marine blocks. Once understood the interactions between different disciplines, applied study delves into the coastal environment through practical specializations.... [-]

ABOUT THE PROGRAM The Marine Science (MarS) Program takes advantage of KAUST’s location on the Red Sea, a living laboratory with great potential for exciting science. The program addresses the biology and ecology of the multitude of marine life forms. There is an intentional focus on the local Red Sea system, both as a primary study system and as a system with which general concepts from other marine systems can be compared. The goal of the Marine Science Program is to develop an integrated understanding of the Red Sea’s ecosystem as well as marine ecosystems in general, including fundamental biology at the molecular and genomic levels, symbiosis with algae and prokaryotes (Bacteria and Archaea), associated communities of fish and corals and the physical and chemical environment that impacts and shapes them. This understanding could have an impact on global carbon cycling, endangered species and how we manage the harvesting of resources from the Oceans. ... [-]
