Abu Dhabi University

Overview

The dream began with the Charter of Abu Dhabi University in the year 2000, brief history by his Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and other distinguished citizens of the United Arab Emirates. After three years of planning, the university opened its doors in September 2003, to 1,000 students in its two campuses in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
