AUS and UoE sign MOA offering students graduate study opportunities



The American University of Sharjah (AUS) College of Engineering (CEN) and University of Edinburgh (UoE) School of Engineering signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that offers AUS engineering students the opportunity to pursue their graduate studies at UoE.

The agreement was signed at AUS on September 13, formalizing the implementation of a 4+1 program where AUS students who have completed four years of their undergraduate engineering studies at AUS have the opportunity to join UoE for one year to pursue their master’s degree within the School of Engineering. AUS engineering students will benefit from an expedited admission process provided that they meet UoE’s standard entry requirements. Successful candidates will also benefit from a partial scholarship of £3,000.

Through the 4+1 program, AUS engineering students will have the opportunity to pursue their graduate studies in digital design and manufacture, electrical power engineering, electronics, fire engineering science, signal processing and communications, sustainable energy systems, advanced chemical engineering and advanced power engineering.

“This collaboration between AUS and UoE represents an exciting opportunity for our engineering students. The 4+1 program will not only equip our students with a solid foundation in engineering from AUS, but will also allow them to access world-class postgraduate education at UoE, setting them on a path to excellence and international recognition to become global citizens,” said Dr. Fadi Aloul, Dean of CEN.

“This new academic partnership between AUS and UoE will allow our two world-class institutions to train the next generation of engineers on the state-of-the-art engineering and equip them with the knowledge and skill set required to tackle the modern global challenges,” said Prof. Aristides Kiprakis, Director of Internationalisation at the UoE School of Engineering.

This partnership is a testament to both institutions’ commitment to nurturing future engineering leaders and an example of international collaboration to promote academic excellence on a global scale. CEN has also been strengthening its industrial outreach and student enrichment experiences with the launch of the AUS Engineering Al Nukhba Program, which establishes through industry partnerships collaborations in the areas of research, development, training programs, internships, exchange of information and personnel, joint supervision of students’ capstone projects and field trips.

AUS is among the top 25 percent of universities in the world, according to QS World University Rankings (2024), and has ranked third in the UAE in the category of engineering and technology, according to QS World University Rankings by Broad Subjects (2023).

UoE is ranked 22 according to QS World University Rankings (2024) and 59 in engineering and technology, according to the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2023.
