Cooperation between AUD and Spanish Multinational 'Acciona'
Nov 12, 2019

I moved from Italy to attend The American University in Dubai and pursue a degree in Civil Engineering. It was difficult for me to leave behind my friends, family and the surroundings in which I felt safe and comfortable. What I expected to find in Dubai was the perfect environment for a university student majoring in civil engineering. What appeared in front of my eyes was the biggest construction site on Earth. For some people it might be annoying, for me that’s much more interesting than any TV show.


Being an engineering student at AUD makes you unique - not because you have tough courses - but for having the E building as your home for four years. As an engineering student, there is a lot of homework, lab work, and projects but at the same time you socialize with your fellow students, make strong bonds, and learn beyond your classroom walls.
