“ADU has achieved an incredible amount in a short time.”
"ADU has achieved an incredible amount in a short time. When I arrived at the end of 2015 the College of Engineering had just achieved ABET accreditation for several of its programs and today it continues to develop new programs, improve standards, and create a positive academic culture.
One of my strengths is the techniques I have developed to effectively manage groups of students with a mix of experience and backgrounds and, of course, I encourage my students to project manage their own learning.”
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.
