Pakistani engineering university plans to open campus in Dubai.
Expectant that good-quality campus required at least Dh110 million to start processes.
NED University will be the second Pakistani university, and now the first engineering university, to be situated in the UAE.
Dubai One of Pakistan’s best engineering universities has hurled a Dh110 million proposal to open a campus in Dubai next year. The vice chancellor Muhammad Afzal Haque, said earlier the university can instigate its UAE project, it needs financial support.
NED would like to establish a campus in Dubai along with other globally well-known universities. We feel grateful to serve the Pakistani emigrant community living in the Middle East, as well as homegrown students, at a cheap cost.
Expectant that the Pakistani assignment in the UAE will help us antechamber with our government to fund the project and also request the UAE Government to support our project, he said, adding that a good-quality campus required at least Dh110 million to start processes.
For the previous two years we have been notifying Pakistani missions in the Middle East about the self-finance system.
The potential candidates can apply for the sponsor seats directly or through the higher education commission. The Pakistani emigrant community greeted the news that NED University was formulating to open here.
Optimistically they will cater to the demands of Pakistani students who are born and raised in the UAE, as it is very difficult for them to live in Pakistan for higher studies.
He said that it would be a consecration for emigrants if the quality of education he received at the university was obtainable in Dubai.
Pakistani families who have lived here for quite a long time are uncomfortable when their children go to Pakistan for higher education. These children are not familiar with the living conditions of Pakistan and the safety condition back home always makes parents anxious. There was absolutely a need for a good engineering university in the UAE.
NED will be fruitful and will be able to struggle with other schools, but only if they recruit a quality capability and invest in state-of-the-art laboratory equipment. If the fees are inexpensive, to serve to the lower middle class, then it will be advantageous to the Pakistani community. If it is built, NED University will be the second Pakistani university, and the primarily engineering university, to be situated in the UAE.
