Al Ain University of Science and Technology (AAU) is licensed by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. AAU is a new and rapidly growing institution of higher education, which uses English as a medium of instruction. It has two campuses; one in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, and the other in Al Ain, the ‘garden city’ of the UAE. Since the establishment of the university in 2005, the university’s student enrolment has tripled, and now includes students from the UAE and more than other twenty nationalities.
The university offers accredited Bachelor degree programs through its various colleges: College of Business Administration, College of Education, College of Engineering and Information Technology, College of Law, College of Pharmacy, and College of Communication and Media. AAU also offers a Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) and a Professional Diploma in Education. The university has submitted proposals for additional programs to the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. Should these programs be granted accreditation, they too will be offered by AAU.
