United Arab Emirates (UAE) is all set to open its first graduate-level, research-based Artificial Intelligence (AI) university in the world.
This UAE university is named as Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI) after Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of UAE Armed Forces.
MBZUAI will introduce a new model of academia and research to the field of AI, providing students and faculty access to some of the world’s most advanced AI systems so as to unleash its potential for economic and societal development.
MBZUAI will enable graduate students, businesses, and governments to advance the AI field.
MBZUAI aligns with UAE’s leadership vision that is based on sustainable development, progress and overall well-being of humanity. It is underpinned by capacity-building and active participation in finding practical solutions based on innovation and state-of-the-art technology.
MBZUAI will work with leading local as well as global companies to secure internships, and will also assist students in finding employment opportunities. It is being touted as an open invitation from Abu Dhabi to the world to unleash the full potential of AI.
Graduate students can now apply to MBZUAI via University’s website with registration scheduled to open in August 2020.
The first batch of graduate students will commence coursework at MBZUAI’s Masdar City campus in September 2020.
MBZUAI will provide all admitted students with a full scholarship, in addition to benefits like health insurance, monthly allowance, and accommodation.
