Construction has started on RIT’s new state-of-the-art campus scheduled to open in 2020 in the Dubai Silicon Oasis.

The United Arab Emirates government is funding the approximately $136 million project.

Since launching in 2008, RIT Dubai’s enrollment has grown steadily. In the fall, RIT Dubai enrollment grew to more than 600 students, and the new campus will be able to accommodate up to 4,000. The state-of-the-art academic complex will house five colleges–Electrical Engineering and Computing, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Business Administration, Sciences, and Humanities. More.
