Welcome!

This Center is a partnership between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) Mechanical Engineering Departments. Our collaboration focuses on research in desalination, low carbon energy, related areas of design and manufacturing as well as curriculum development in Mechanical Engineering.

"Visiting Saudi Arabia and KFUPM was a great life experience. More practically, face-to-face discussions with counterparts have improved the quality of our collaboration."

Mike Kozlowski, Masters Student at MIT
