Research at ES (Fifty Years of Geosciences Teaching and Research at KFUPM)

Fifty Years of Geosciences Teaching and Research at KFUPMThe Earth Sciences have been at the heart of KFUPM’s academic program since the university was first established about 50 years ago. The early geologists in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia focused on the search for and extraction of natural resources, an important endeavor that fueled Saudi Arabia’s expanding industrial economy and brought petroleum to world markets. Today the Earth Sciences Department works to gain a better understanding of our planet's history and its future, the energy and resource base that supports a global society, geological and environmental hazards that affect a growing population, a changing climate, and the challenge of sustainability for future generations.
