Overview

This program comes at the perfect time to serve the innovation movement in the UAE and the advancement toward smart cities with smart services in the area of energy, education, health, government, industry, artificial intelligence, robotics and business. 

 

Due to the rapid technological evolution over the past decade, communications, information, visualization and sensing technologies are increasingly becoming integrated. As a result, the interface between electrical engineering and computer engineering, once very distinct fields in themselves, is a growth area in the technology industry. 

 

This program, one of only two such integrated programs on offer in the UAE, will prepare you to tackle complex problems in the areas of microelectronics, communications and networking, power and renewable energy, embedded systems, robotics, the Internet of Things, machine learning, signal processing and information technology. 

 

The combination of the two disciplines emphasizes the increasing importance of traditional electrical engineering subjects like electromagnetics and signal processing to the new age of computer engineering. This holistic approach to electrical and computer engineering produces students better prepared to integrate modern computing systems into devices, products and services capable of bettering the world.

 

Due to the ever-changing needs of this agile industry, our curriculum is constantly evolving to meet the needs of the market.

“They take your passion and talent and push you even further.”  

"I applied to quite a few universities initially but ADU gave me a full scholarship based on a score of 99% in my high school certificate. I’m happy that they saw my potential.  

My experience in the Electrical & Computer Engineering department has been incredible. The professors’ doors are always open, they make you love the courses they’re teaching, and they are so supportive of working students.  My professors still encourage me to compete in my field. If you’re hard working, they take your passion and talent and push you even further."

Tuition is based upon the College and/or Department classification as opposed to the course classification or level. Tuition rates for undergraduate students vary from the tuition rates for graduate students.

The tuition fee calculations are an example only and are based on the assumption that elective courses will be taken with the College that the student is taking their major with. However, if the student selects elective courses outside of this College, the total cost payable may increase or decrease to reflect the tuition rate of the College where the elective is delivered.

Costs of books and supplies are not included in the Tuition and Fees. Students at Abu Dhabi University are also required to pay certain fees and other costs to attend the University. Abu Dhabi University reserves the right to change tuition and fee rates at any time. A tuition schedule is published prior to registration for each semester.
