This is an exciting time of advancement and development within the college. From launching new programs to engaging in ground-breaking research in our state-of-the-art-facilities, our college continues to make strides that mark it as the one of the finest engineering schools in the region. Our pursuit of excellence in teaching and research has seen AUS being ranked among the top institutions in the Arab World and our programs being accredited both within the UAE and internationally.

Our college has a clear vision of its role as a leader in educating and mentoring the next generation of engineers, computer scientists and innovators. Graduates of our programs have the highest level of professional and technical preparation, leadership development and global preparedness. This enables them to take on key roles in industry and government, as well as pursue careers in academia at leading institutions around the world. We guide and groom future scientists and researchers to address global health challenges, as well as critical energy and environmental issues.

Engineers are innovators and our faculty members are no exception. Hailing from some of the world’s leading engineering universities, our faculty are accomplished researchers working at the cutting edge of their areas of research. These world-class professors bring to their classrooms the latest in research and best practice, offering students a front-row seat to the best in innovation.

I am proud of the students, innovators and scholars who comprise the AUS CEN family. I am extremely honored to be part of a team of people who are not just about making things happen but are committed to making things better.
