School of Engineering, Applied Science & Technology

The School of Engineering, Applied Science & Technology offers three undergraduate programs: Bachelor of Science in Network Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Telecommunications Engineering, Bachelor of Computer and Networking Engineering Technology. A combination of theoretical and practical knowledge, with world class laboratories equipped with the latest technologies mirroring engineering schools in North America, these programs develop graduates for fields experiencing tremendous growth.

Senior students from the School of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology have the opportunity to conduct research within the Canadian University Dubai Office of Research Services. The Office of Research Services is networked with the engineering research centers in Canada, allowing students to work on active research projects with Canadian academics. In addition to broadening their research experience while in Dubai, this opportunity also paves the way for graduate level study in the field of engineering within a network of the top universities in Canada.

Programs Offered

Message from the Dean

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the School of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology at the Canadian University Dubai. The School offers three Bachelor degrees that are designed based on the Canadian engineering curriculum requirements and are accredited by the Ministry of Education - Higher Education Affairs, United Arab Emirates.

The School houses many telecommunication and networking laboratories. Our students have a unique opportunity to interact with state-of-the-art technologies. While studying at the School, you will enjoy internships with many hi-tech companies located in the vibrant city of Dubai. Also, the School developed partnerships with many Canadian Universities giving our students the opportunity to transfer many course credits and finish their Bachelor degree in Canada after completing one or two years of study at the Canadian University Dubai.

Perhaps the most unique experience you will gain here in at the Canadian University Dubai is the ability to engage in a “hands-on” engineering education. All of our students participate in an elaborate capstone design experience. Many of our projects compete internationally. Last year, our students published several poster papers in the 6th Joint IFIP Wireless and Mobile Networking Conference (WMNC'13). Also, many of our students are involved in research conducted by our dedicated faculty. The School houses two research centers of excellence: one in Advanced Web Technologies and the other in Signal and Image Processing.

Although regarded as a young school, we have built reputation for excellence and innovation. Again, we welcome you at the School of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology.
