King Saud University’s recently launched SET (Sustainable Energy Technology) Program offering scholarships in renewable energy has received an overwhelming number of applicants from more than 30 nations. The applicants, including students pursuing Doctorate and Masters degrees, as well as established researchers, have backgrounds in the fields of electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering, as well as physics and chemistry. Their expertise includes solar energy, wind energy and hydrogen energy among others.

One of SET’s key partners will be the King Abdullah City for Nuclear and Renewable Energy, which will oversee all aspects of Saudi Arabia’s nascent nuclear power industry particularly needed to meet the Kingdom’s rising demand for power and desalinated water. Discussions have been ongoing to explore ways of cooperation between the University and the City, which will benefit from KSU’s Riyadh Technology Valley, which is establishing world-class, state-of-the-art research centers for energy and desalination.

SET is a part of the Vice Rectorate of Graduate Studies and Scientific Research, led by Dr. Al- Al-Ghamdi and SET Deputy General Supervisor Adel Abdennour.
