Education is key to building a self-sufficient economy and as the higher education landscape in the UAE continues to grow under the guidance of UAE’s leaders, universities are focusing on providing quality education and creating learning opportunities for students to succeed in a workplace.

The first of its kind on a university campus, the ground station gives students the opportunity to perform a number of operational functions that will help them in their careers. Photovoltaic solar panels were installed on the university campus grounds and rooftop, with a goal to become a completely solar-powered campus over the next few years.
