Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology

Choose from an outstanding range of dynamic, technology-driven programs based on Canadian curriculum and education principles and earn a world-class engineering degree in the heart of Dubai.

Across our two departments – Electrical Engineering and  Computer Engineering and Computational Sciences – we have partnerships with leading Canadian institutions, both in the delivery of our curriculum and the pursuit of first-class research. The 2 + 2 transfer program , in partnership with the prestigious Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, allows students to spend their first 2 years of study in Dubai and the final 2 years in Canada, graduating with a Queen’s University degree.

The Faculty has recently launched a state-of-the-art Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Electrical Engineering, with concentrations in the high-demand disciplines of Electronics, Mechatronics and Telecommunications. We also offer a Bachelors in Computing and Network Engineering Technology and we have developed a new degree program in computing with Queen’s University, with specializations in General Computing, Biomedical Computing, and Software Design; it is expected to be launched in January 2021.

Throughout each academic program, the Faculty uses the latest technologies and labs to ensure that students are trained to ‘hit the ground running’ when they join the workplace. You will experience a learning environment where excellence in instruction, mastery of technology, and outstanding opportunities for work placement (internships) and research are top priorities. Courses are taught by highly experienced instructors with previous teaching experience in North America.

At CUD, undergraduate students also benefit from the unique opportunity to engage in research with our faculty, which provides a head-start in building their creative portfolio and positions them strongly for future graduate studies. Our students have gone on to further their studies in Canada, or take on challenging and rewarding roles in industry, both locally and internationally.

We would be delighted to tell you more about our programs and our downtown Dubai campus. Please contact  DeanFEAST@cud.ac.ae for more information.
