At Kaust I learned geostatistics, data analysis, numerical methods, inverse problems and modeling.
There I was offered an amazing cultural experience, I had the opportunity to meet students and faculty from every country on earth and live in a vivid and active community.
The university hosts one of the only cinemas and green golf courses in the kingdom, a private beach, bowling, swimming pool, gym, and much more. The major downside is the weather which is hot and humid,
the air is carried with dust (sand) making it impossible to see the stars in the sky, the sky during the day is always blue but the range of view is limited, most of the time it is not possible to see distant constructions.
