Visiting Student Programs at the AMPM Center

The Advanced Membranes and Porous Materials (AMPM) Center at KAUST is a group of dedicated faculty, scientists and graduate students researching novel polymeric, inorganic and hybrid materials for advanced membranes and porous materials.  AMPM Center is focused on making an impact in the Kingdom through the creation of basic science and development to applications in collaboration with industry.

 


AMPM CENTER'S VISITING STUDENT PROGRAM

  • The Advanced Membranes and Porous Materials Research Center at KAUST offers undergraduates the opportunity to enhance their current degree programs through our visiting student interships. Read more --->

    • The length of the program ranges anywhere between 3- to 6-months, depending on the type of research. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
