Engineering challenges of the 21st century are varied, complex, and cross-disciplinary.
Ranging from the nano-scale to mega-projects, they are characterized by sustainability concerns, environmental and energy constraints, global sourcing, and humanitarian goals. In the face of global competition, dwindling natural resources, and the complexity of societal needs, the leaders of technological enterprises will be those who can innovate, are inventive and entrepreneurial, and understand how technology is integrated within society.
A distinguished and diverse engineering faculty at NYU Abu Dhabi engages in state-of-the-art research, innovation, invention, and entrepreneurship. Their research is concentrated in five thematic areas:
- Cyber Security
- Urban Systems
- Environmental Sustainability
- Biomedical and Health Systems
Ozgur Sinanoglu and his team of engineers have devised the unhackable chip — an innovation that may have a huge impact on an industry that loses up to $4 billion USD each year to digital piracy.
Engineering at NYUAD is designed to create technological leaders with a global perspective, a broad education, and the capacity to think creatively. A distinctive element of our undergraduate programs lie in the integration of design and innovation in every year of the curriculum: students enjoy a learning environment conducive to creativity, which is at the heart of tomorrow’s technological innovations and enterprises.
Graduate Programs Degree Global PhD Student Fellowship in Engineering PhD
Yousteena Bocktor is the first NYU Abu Dhabi student to receive this award from the Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation for Education.
Global PhD Fellow Muhammad Yasin won best thesis for his work on groundbreaking hardware security research in the Design for Excellence Lab at NYUAD.
NYU Abu Dhabi engineers are working with Abu Dhabi Police on new ways to ease traffic congestion.
Sea levels are rising, threatening coastal cities worldwide. Simulation tracking of commuter movements using cell phone location data can help engineers predict how drivers will react if roads are flooded.
