UAEU is the oldest and most comprehensive residential university for graduate and undergraduate men and women in the United Arab Emirates. The institution is currently positioning itself to become a world-class center for applied research, national and international outreach, innovation and outcome-based learning. The university’s growth trajectory requires advanced, flexible technology that can both accommodate and facilitate expansion.
“The university is placing a high priority on international interconnectivity,”
CurricUNET is currently experiencing a rapid growth phase as more and more higher education institutions and statewide systems turn toward advanced technology to automate management processes and improve connectivity. As a result, these institutions are tapping into Governet’s rapidly expanding worldwide curriculum network. The interconnectivity gained has proven to be especially beneficial in multi-campus systems that depend upon CurricUNET’s capability to interconnect multiple departmental levels during program approval processes, articulation and reviews.
The benefits ultimately impact students as CurricUNET increases the capacity for higher education institutions to offer quality programs garnered as a result of shared information within the worldwide curriculum database.
“The future of fully connected and integrated higher education institutions is thrilling,” said Thyberg. “For universities like the UAEU that seek to improve the student-centered educational experience, having such unprecedented access to a global cache of courses and programs opens opportunities that, a decade ago, were not even conceivable.”
