Dubai Academic City promises to be global destination

By Bassam Za'za', Staff Reporter


Dubai: Dubai Academic City will create a global academic destination that provides all institutions housed in it with opportunities for communication, experience-sharing and cooperation to utilise latest technologies and processes, said a senior official.

"DAC will give its students access to all the available academic sources. It is set to be a way of life with its potential and facilities. Students and faculty will be able to study, work and lead a full-fledged life within the campus which is a miniature depiction of the greater Dubai life," Ahmad Bin Byat, Chairman of Dubai Education Council (DEC), told a crowd of academicians and Dubai-based university directors at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel on Sunday.

Speaking at DAC's official launching, Bin Byat said DAC will provide ample opportunity for interaction regionally and locally by cultivating programmes that are more in tune with developmental requirements in the region and decrease the expanding gap between them and the qualified human resources.

This new global academic destination will service a variety of local, Arab and international institutions, universities, training, research and excellence centres.

The launch comes as part of an ongoing Dubai government initiative to invest in the development of human capital through quality international higher education and training, he said.

Investments for this project, built on a 129 million square foot campus, are forecast to exceed Dh12 billion and will be allocated to different development phases, according to the project's master plan. The development is set for completion in 2012.

Programmes offered will be specialised courses that cater to the needs of the different booming economic sectors in Dubai and the region, he added.

Dr Abdullah Al Karam, DEC's Secretary General and Chief Executive of Knowledge Village, told Gulf News, "It is about time to take higher education to a next step and provide the full academic experience for universities, faculty and students."

They cant possibly demolish KV... They just built it less than 3 years ago! And from what I understand, they are currently expanding it too!
