The College of IT (CIT) seeks to foster high quality research and to improve the college’s
long-term research capacity by establishing and executing a research strategy, that
is designed to deliver excellent research outcomes commensurate with UAEU’s strategic
priorities and the national drive towards a knowledge-based economy. This strategy
comes timely with the UAE Vision 2021, and the nation’s innovation strategy.
To help achieve that, the CIT established research groups with the aim to produce
high quality research and successfully engage the college in strategic sponsorship,
partnership and collaboration with national and international entities and to be the
catalyst for a future interdisciplinary research center in Intelligent Systems at
The three created Research Groups are in the areas of Data Science, Cyber Security
and Connected Autonomous Intelligent Systems.
