The place is Great!! Don't hear what lazy people say about it! I know most of the security procedures are unnecessary, I'm studying at the females' campus and we go through more security procedures than what the boys go through, we don't even have housing for female students at all! I originally live in Al Ain, but it's actually worth the trouble of renting a house or a room in another university dorm to study at the PI. Many qualified instructors work there, and they come from all over the world. The PI is seeking the ABET accreditation, and they will probably get it. I know we undergo a lot of stress, but I still think it's all worth it. The contract with ADNOC guarantees your future job! and who wouldn't like getting a job immediately after they graduate??!! All students get a scholarship once they are admitted. Emarati students get monthly salaries and rewards per semester depending on their semester's GPA.
In general, if you don't like to study MATH or SCIENCE, then simply don't APPLY!! and vise-verse.
In my opinion this place is a bit over-rated. The security is way to much, the procedures are all unnecessary. You have to sign a contract to work with adnoc for 5 years. You can't find a bedroom there if you live in abu dhabi. The education is strict, but it doesn't get any results, it only wares the students out.
