The American University in Dubai, AUD, has announced that it has collaborated with Red Hat to create the AUD Red Hat Academy. Red Hat Academy is an open source, web-deployed and web-managed education programme that is designed to provide turnkey curriculum materials to academic institutions to start and sustain an open source and Linux curriculum programme.
Located in one of the most dynamic cities in the world, AUD’s School of Engineering has positioned itself at the forefront of engineering education in the UAE and beyond. The School offers undergraduate programmes leading to Bachelor of Science degrees in Civil, Computer, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering, as well as a Master of Science in Construction Management. The curriculum strikes a balance between theory and practice and is designed to provide students with the necessary skills to succeed in a global and complex environment. A sequence of well-designed electives will introduce students to a wide variety of specialisations such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, renewable energy systems, mechatronics, environmental engineering, and transportation systems.
AUD programmes are delivered by experienced faculty with strong records of accomplishment and solid international exposure. State of the art labs and excellent facilities are in place to ensure an effective teaching and learning experience. At AUD, students will have the opportunity to join prestigious professional societies, engage in study abroad programmes and learn through practical field experience.
With local and international accreditations in place, and through a broad education grounded in cultural diversity and technical excellence, AUD graduates continue to be highly sought after at both the regional and global levels. As a result, a good number of graduates join the world’s top graduate schools while other are placed at well-known multinational companies and engineering firms.
