The New York Institute of Technology has become the first licensed American university in the United Arab Emirates. NYIT has been offering degree programs in the UAE since 2005, but recently completed the lengthy application process for formal licensure by the Ministry of Education and Scientific Research. NYIT’s current offerings there include baccalaureate programs in computer science, accounting and business administration and master’s programs in electrical and computer engineering, business administration and computer science. NYIT’s classes are co-educational and taught in English. They are administered by 20 full-time faculty members supplemented by visiting NYIT faculty from New York. Enrollment currently stands at 350 students and is expected to grow to more than 1,500 within the next three years. NYIT also recently opened an American-style university in China as well.
