05 October 2017 :
Abu Dhabi University signed an MOU with the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC), to enhance mutual collaboration in consultancy projects, academic studies, as well as support the institutional, human and administrative development of the FAIC and its employees.
Commenting on the partnership, Professor Waqar Ahmad, Interim Chancellor and Provost of Abu Dhabi University, said: “Abu Dhabi University and the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC) share a keen interest in supporting the UAE government’s vision to shape future leaders, build a knowledge-based economy and prioritize the happiness of the nation’s citizens and residents.
“Our agreement today represents the beginning of a strategic knowledge partnership that will benefit both parties as we collaborate in organizing conferences, developing joint academic and training programs as well as research projects that contribute to the nation’s economic growth. Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of this MOU is the opportunities it offers FAIC’s employees who are interested in pursuing higher education degrees in any of ADU’s internationally benchmarked programs”.
