Faculty of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology

Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology

The Faculty of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology brings the world-class Canadian education to the heart of Dubai. We offer a range of dynamic, technology-driven programs based on Canadian curriculum and education principles. As a gateway to Canadian education, we maintain a number of partnerships with leading Canadian institutions, such as the 2 + 2 transfer program with the prestigious Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario) . The program allows students to spend their first 2 years of study in Dubai and the last 2 years of study in Canada and graduate with a Queen’s University degree.

The Faculty uses the latest technologies and labs in its course delivery to ensure that students receive the most up-to-date education experience, aligned with industry practices. Courses are taught by highly experienced instructors with previous teaching experience in North America.

The Faculty collaborates with a number of international partners, both in the delivery of its curriculum and in its pursuit of first-class research. Students graduating from the Faculty have gone on to further their studies in Canada, or take on challenging and rewarding roles in industry, both locally and internationally.

The Faculty consists of two departments: Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering and Computational Sciences.

A Leader in Education

The Faculty of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology has recently launched a new, state-of-the-art Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Electrical Engineering with concentrations in Electronics, Mechatronics and Telecommunications. In the rapidly advancing technological environment, professionals in the fields such as Mechatronics are expected to be in very high demand.

The Faculty also offers a Bachelor in Computing and Network Engineering Technology. In addition, the Faculty is jointly developing a new degree program in computing with the Queen’s University, with specializations in General Computing, Biomedical Computing, and Software Design.

As a student, you will choose Engineering at CUD for the exceptional opportunities it offers to continue your university studies at one of our Canadian partner institutions. You will experience a learning environment where the quality of interaction between student and professor is a top priority, coupled with excellence in instruction, mastery of state-of-the art technologies and the outstanding opportunities for work placement (internships) and undergraduate research.

We make sure that our students are trained to “hit the ground running” when they join the workplace. That is why we provide them with intensive hands-on training in our Engineering labs and internships.

Finally, students have a unique opportunity to engage in research with our top researchers as undergraduate students, which is rarely possible in other institutions where only graduate students are entitled to research training. This gives our students the head-start in building their research/creative activity portfolio and positions them strongly for future graduate studies.

If you want an education grounded in the Canadian principles of excellence, creativity, originality and out-of-the-box thinking, the Faculty of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology at CUD is where your career starts! We would be delighted to tell you more about our programs and campus. Please contact DeanFEAST@cud.ac.ae for more information or for a visit to our Downtown Dubai Campus! We look forward to welcoming you to Canadian University Dubai.
