Ajman University

Introduction

Ajman University is a leader in UAE higher education today, tomorrow and beyond.

Ajman University (AU) has been at the forefront of U.A.E. education since being founded as the first private university in the Gulf region 30 years ago. With the recent addition of a College of Medicine, the landmark institution (with campuses in Ajman and Fujairah) now encompasses 9 colleges offering 23 undergraduate and 10 graduate programs. AU’s programs are accredited by the UAE’s Ministry of Education. Additionally, AU is pursuing international accreditation for specific programs as well as the University at large.

AU’s rich mix of international faculty and students – from 35 and 72 diverse nationalities, respectively – are the cornerstones of AU’s environment of innovation, excellence and social responsibility. AU aims to be internationally recognized as one of the leading universities in the Arab world.

Faculty and students embody the university’s “Make it Happen” motto. Case in point are Italian lecturers Emanuela Corti and Ivan Parati. When the dynamic duo isn’t teaching design in the College of Engineering, they’re creating innovative garments that serve multiple purposes. Their high-tech clothes, known as “Sensewear,” can be worn by anyone but are especially relevant for those with Sensory Processing Disorders most often associated with autism and Asperger syndrome. Sensewear won the Grand Prix at the Lexus Design Awards in Japan 2015, and earned the top “wearable tech” awards at Venice Design Week in 2016 and at Health Tech & You in 2017.

At Ajman University, being socially responsible is part of the collective DNA. Students here show great passion for their studies and deep compassion toward society. They have many opportunities to share what they’ve learned in classrooms with the community at large. Each semester, volunteer groups visit places like Nepal and Zanzibar to provide their services – from health care to language instruction. Locally, more than 500 dental patients are served each day at AU’s free dental clinic on campus. And, with the recent addition of a mobile dental unit, dentistry services will soon be available to those who lack transportation.

Since opening in 1988, AU has graduated more than 36,000 students who hail from 84 nations. Working in a variety of professions – from dentistry to information technology; pharmacy to law; mass communication to business administration – AU alumni now comprise 14 alumni chapters around the globe.

Ajman University’s Mission, Vision and Core Values are rooted in a firm commitment to excellence, innovation and social responsibility.
