Overview

Since its establishment in 1997, the university has put research at the top of its list of priorities. Part of the university's strategy is to promote research among faculty members in all colleges, with the aim of attracting outstanding faculty with impressive research accomplishments. This stems the university's understanding of scientific research as the basis of economic, social, humanitarian, and medical developments. With scientific research we construct knowledge, and within this knowledge lies the solution to many problems.

Because we aspire for excellence in scientific research, not only locally but also regionally and internationally, several centers were established for research in various fields presented by specific research groups; namely Research Institutes of Medical Sciences(RIMHS); Research Institute of Sciences and Engineering(RISE); Research Institute of Humanities & Social Sciences(RIHSS). Faculty members in these centers conducted a substantial number of research studies in collaboration with other faculty members in the same department, other faculty members in different departments, or other respected parties from outside the University of Sharjah with rich experience in scientific research. We signed agreements with many local, regional and international institutions in support of the research studies our faculty members carry out.

The University of Sharjah is  offering 20 Masters programs, and 8 PhD. programs which are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and recognized worldwide. The university continuously seeks to expand its graduate studies and to establish new master's and PhD programs in key areas. and aims at giving the masters  and doctoral students the best education and services. They are encouraged to engage in research activities with their professors. In order to contribute to better serving the community and will be published in renowned scientific journals.

The university has also established other centers that further support scientific research: Funding Center; Publication Center; New Technologies Center (this center endorses and promotes new inventions and issues patents accordingly) etc. We are looking forward to establishing the Social Relations for Scientific Research Center, which aims at building relationships with different groups in the community and conducting further scientific research studies to help serve the community better.

Scientific research improves with collaboration​, support and dedication on the behalf of both faculty and staff. We look forward to more collaborative projects between the university and the community or governmental institutions in different sectors. Strategic cooperation results in better community service as well as humanitarian, social and economic improvements done through putting findings from scientific research into practice.
