We host approximately 15 lectures and six exhibitions every semester by visiting academics, professionals, faculty and students. Our faculty and students have been exhibiting work in various galleries in Sharjah, Dubai and around the world.

Our faculty members have been involved in professional consulting, as jurors in various regional and international completions and awards, presentations in conferences and publications. Our faculty and students have been involved in collaborations with Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah Museums Department, the Directorate of Art of the Sharjah Culture and Information Department and the Agha Khan Award.

Our design studios have been sponsored by the Bank of Sharjah and Sharjah Airport Authority. Following its success in 2010, we organized our second annual 2011 CAAD Design Week. Twelve invited academics and practitioners from various multidisciplinary fields in architecture and design were involved in conducting workshops and presentations.
