Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) was founded in 1829 as a private institute of higher education emphasizing the preparation of students for successful careers in a global society. RIT Dubai is also being established as an institution of higher education in order to provide world-class educational programs in the United Arab Emirates for students and professionals from the Middle-East, North Africa and South East Asia. RIT Dubai offers the same accredited degrees that are offered by Rochester Institute of Technology in the United States.
RIT Dubai will provide high-quality, competitive, technology-based educational programs for personal and professional development. It will develop and deliver curricula and advance scholarship relevant to emerging technologies and social conditions of the region. These programs will engage and motivate students through stimulating and collaborative experiences.
RIT Dubai currently offers Master degree programs in several disciplines in engineering, business and leadership. A wide range of undergraduate programs in Engineering and Business are currently offered in our Dubai campus. Coursework will be offered in a variety of formats and at times that are most convenient for working professionals. RIT Dubai students will also have the opportunity to fulfill part of their degree requirements by attending classes at the main RIT campus in Rochester, New York.
