The School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society in Dubai offers a wide range of programmes at the undergraduate and postgraduate level to provide opportunities designed to support and strengthen the unprecedented economic boom in the built environment that is expanding in the UAE and the Gulf region. The School has a national and international reputation as the leading research institute in Scotland, UK. Our programmes and disciplines are appropriate for professionals involved in the planning, design, construction, sale and development of the built environment and infrastructure. Our courses are taught in a highly flexible manner to complement our students’ busy working lives, and all programmes offer entry into a range of vitally important professions that are both stimulating and offer ample opportunity for career development. A significant characteristic of the School is the close linkage of subjects between our programmes, ensuring an inspired and an inter-disciplinary learning environment.

In a changing world we aim to pioneer the teaching of students who will be sought after, not just for their technical knowledge and skills, but their commitment to solving the great challenges of today and tomorrow. We focus on applied research that is relevant to industry and can bring benefit to society.
