The program is well-structured, allowing you to take a step-by-step approach to developing the fundamental skills, while in the studio sessions you are encouraged to take on different perspectives to find and develop your own style. Inspired by faculty in the school, I am currently pursuing the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, and hope to apply this knowledge to promote sustainable design in my future career.

CUD helped me to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to perform successfully in this role. My course combined engineering skills with the solid business principles that are needed to thrive in an enterprise-oriented world.With a hands-on approach that delivered less theory and more technology, I gained plenty of practical experience to build a strong skill set and a firm grounding in key engineering disciplines.

Canadian University Dubai was one of the few universities around the region that was offering the program, and the friendly welcome and supportive environment I experienced was an important part of my decision to study here.
