    Heriot-Watt University

    Heriot-Watt University is now the largest International University in Dubai with over 4000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. It was the first overseas university to set up in Dubai International Academic City, offering top quality British education to undergraduate and postgraduate students and executives from the Gulf and further afield. Heriot-Watt was invited to Dubai to provide specialized programmes in the fields of management, engineering, built environment, food science and fashion. The University has been operating in Dubai for over a decade and the brand new, purpose-built campus in Dubai International Academic City offers excellent facilities and programmes ranging from Masters programmes in disciplines as challenging and diverse as Petroleum Engineering, Construction Project Management, Management, Energy, Information Technology and the world-renowned Edinburgh Business School MBA, to undergraduate degrees in Management, Construction, Quantity Surveying and Engineering.

    In 2017 Heriot Watt won the “DEWA Conservation Award for Educational Institutions that Implemented Energy Efficient Technologies”.
