NYU Abu Dhabi engineering programs are designed to create technological leaders with a global perspective, a broad education, and the capacity to think creatively. The uniqueness of each program lies in the integration of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship into all phases of study. Students enjoy a learning environment conducive to creativity, which is at the heart of tomorrow’s technological innovations and enterprises.
Undergraduate programs in the NYUAD Engineering Division share common educational objectives. These are to educate and graduate engineers who, within a few years of graduation, will:
- Pursue a diverse range of careers in research, academia, industry, or government.
- Seek continuous professional development and life-long learning through graduate school studies, continuing educational courses, and/or professional registration.
- Utilize their NYUAD education to develop innovative, ethical and socially responsible solutions to a range of local, regional or global problems.
- Be effective communicators and demonstrate collaborative, entrepreneurial and leadership qualities.
The primary pedagogical goals of the Engineering Division, across all majors, are to:
- Immerse students in a coherent integrated engineering curriculum that interconnects various engineering specializations with the liberal arts and sciences;
- Develop in students a broad understanding of engineering principles across traditional disciplines while providing depth in a chosen disciplinary filed or thematic area;
- Impart to students a knowledge of available techniques in the practice of leadership and innovation, inventiveness, and entrepreneurship (i2e), and prepare them to be leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs;
- Prepare students to apply engineering principles in conjunction with social, economic, ethical, and other considerations in identifying and solving problems; and
- Guide students to think critically, analytically, creatively, and independently while fostering the ability to conduct research, evaluate evidence and results, and formulate hypothesis and solutions while recognizing constraints.
