  • Students with major in
  • COE Electrical Engineering (EE), Mechanical Engineering (ME), Software Engineering (SE).
  • COS Life Sciences.
  • Good standing students. Priority to highest CGPA.
  • Expected to complete 3rd year requirements by Spring 2024
  • Eligible to take summer internship during Summer 2024.

Timeline and phases of the ABM program:
  • AU students must declare their intention to join the ABM program by filling out the form, then eligible nominations will be communicated with KAUST.
