The College of Engineering is the largest engineering college in the UAE. It offers a range of engineering and technology programs at undergraduate and postgraduate level, with new and innovative programs being introduced on an ongoing basis.
In 2017 we opened a brand-new, purpose-built academic building expansion and we are very proud of our extensive laboratory infrastructure - among the best in the UAE - which spans more than an entire floor of the College. Each discipline has its own specialized lab facilities and the recent addition of our mechanical engineering research lab and bio-imaging lab gives us the edge.
Joint research projects between our experienced faculty and their international peers guarantee you will be taught by a professional team of engineers up-to-date with the latest advancements in their fields. The annual publication of university rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranks our faculty third globally in the international faculty indicator.
Collaboration with industry and association with international professional engineering and architecture bodies such as the Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers (IEEE), American Society of Civil engineers (ASCE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) ensure ADU’s College of Engineering remains at the cutting-edge of developments in the fast-changing field of engineering and technology. We pride ourselves on the agility of our curricula, responding quickly to technological advances, guaranteeing you will graduate with the skills and knowledge relevant to the needs of the market.
