Message from the Provost
Our UAEU is the first accredited University established by the UAE government, and is therefore the Flagship institution in the UAE. It is well staffed with qualified faculty, eminent researchers, experienced educators and motivated students. As such, we have produced graduates of international caliber who serve the community at the highest level and have obtained prominent positions in the country.
The UAEU produces well prepared and qualified students who are experts in their fields and have acquired excellent knowledge of the subject matter. Our aim is to further develop and advance skills of students in preparation for meeting the demands of the labor market. This is done through enriching the educational programs with skills such as leadership, communication, and the use of the new technologies, with the expectation that students will improve their practical training and development to be in an even better position to serve the Nation.
The UAEU employs very capable faculty who are recognized nationally and internationally for their innovation and research contributions. Their research is focused on problems of national importance, and we are very proud of their research achievements and scientific publications in reputable international journals. We envisage expanding collaboration between scientific groups and bringing researchers together to form the foundation for specialized research centers. These centers will enable us to respond better to the need of UAE society and tackle challenges faced globally. Examples include educational technology, water, applied biotechnology, energy & environment, strategic policy & leadership, and sustainable development. Being so richly endowed, the UAEU is well positioned for the future.
