The Materials Research Society has established its first international student chapter at KAUST, under the umbrella of the MSE program.
The Materials Research Society (MRS) is the leading organization of materials researchers from academia, industry, and government with over 16,000 members from all over the world.
KAUST envisions being one of the leading institutes performing interdisciplinary and application oriented materials research. It is devoted to preparing students to tackle the major challenges facing the world in terms of sustainability and alternative energy.
The MRS student chapter aims to help KAUST achieve its vision. We are focused at promoting the role and impact of Materials Science and Engineering in Saudi Arabia, the region and the world.
This chapter also aims to enhance synergy between various departments and to provide a forum for dialogue between students, faculty and industry pursuing materials research. The chapter will perform as a liaison between students at KAUST and the international materials research society (MRS).
The chapter will be organizing several technical seminars, poster sessions, informal discussions, outreach programs and a lot of other fun activities for its members. Inaugural Founding student chapter members can benefit from:
• Historic Inaugural KAUST-MRS student chapter t-shirts
• Discount on MRS conference registration fees
• Eligibility to enter MRS competitions

• MRS sponsored workshops and symposiums
