College of Engineering
Welcome to the College of Engineering at Abu Dhabi University.
I am very excited to serve the College of Engineering (COE) and its community as your Dean. In the COE, we aim to foster a community of learners who are devoted to solving some of the most multifaceted engineering challenges - from global warming to financial uncertainty.
We welcome students to a purpose-built academic facility and state-of-the-art laboratories and prepare them to be leading independent thinkers, problem solvers, and innovators in engineering. As a leading engineering college in the UAE, we provide a vibrant learning culture and many leadership opportunities for our students, equipping them with advanced skills and expertise to give them a competitive edge. As Dean, I feel humbled and honored to lead this College - a place where imagination, empathy, integrity, and intellect merge to create, innovate, and discover ways that will improve our quality of life.
Adhering to the highest international standards, we offer a wide variety of undergraduate and postgraduate programs with engaging curricula complemented by co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. These programs have been developed in partnership with industry and according to the standards of international professional engineering and architecture bodies such as the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Students can join professional societies including the Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers (IEEE), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). Our Aviation Department in particular has also received the accreditation as an Authorized Training Center (ATC) from the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
Our highly qualified professors and researchers partner with international universities and research centers, providing us with effective internship programs that enable our students to gain practical work experience, build their networks, and find challenging real-world problems for capstone design projects.
In the College of Engineering, we strive to become a nationwide leader in developing new engineering and technical education ideas as well as research and innovation development. We are a robust and resourceful community of students, faculty, alumni, and professional and academic partners. I invite you to learn more about our transformative engineering programs and the numerous opportunities that we provide. Please join us on this journey.
