RIT Dubai began offering graduate degree programs in September 2008 in several disciplines in engineering, computing, business, and service leadership. These masters degree programs have been selected to support the need for personal and professional development, economic growth, and human capital development in Dubai and the Gulf region. The programs are part-time programs, and classes are offered in a variety of formats and at times that are most convenient for working professionals.
The university currently offers bachelor of science degrees in Marketing, Management, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. These undergraduate programs are designed for full-time study, and students combine practical experience with strong academic foundations, and an emphasis on technology. All undergraduate students will have the opportunity to fulfill part of their degree requirements by attending classes at the main RIT campus in Rochester, New York.
