UMS President's Message

Dear distinguished students and visitors,


We have the pleasure to heartedly welcome you to the website of the University of Modern Science. We at the UMS aims to reach a distinguished academic level that aligned with the quality and high reputation of the higher education system in the United Arab Emirates.


From the beginning, we had in mind a target to reach: to be a dynamic participant and effective part in the successful story of the Emirate of Dubai in particular and the UAE in general. Therefore, we have been always keen to develop academic programs respond to the labor market needs and its various ever increasing demands.
We all at UMS take into consideration the diverse interests of our students: we try to provide them with the proper academic environment to excel and advance their knowledge. Along the run, UMS emphasize on the practical training to improve the students’ skills.
The principle of education for all and the importance of science and scientists were deeply rooted by the wisdom of His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan (RIP). To preserve these principle, UMS offers up to 50% of scholarships for all offered programs at both levels bachelor and master. We at UMS fully believe that the higher education institutions have to play a sincere role to create and offer affordable leaning opportunities to the knowledge seeker and faithfully esteem take part in the development plans of UAE society which will reflect the value of knowledge in the progress and welfare of nations.

Moreover, UMS saves no effort to secure distinguished partnership not only with national bodies; governmental and non-governmental but also with the most reputable international universities and scientific research centers worldwide. Such partnerships genuinely reflect the bright image of Dubai Emirate as a supporter for development and scientific research in benefit to the whole society at large. As an example of such strategic partnership, we can cite the cooperation with North Dakota State University, USA (NDSU), which various studies have been carried out by the University with Government Authorities in Dubai in the fields of big data, smart cities and Transportations smart solutions.
Because we are keen to help UMS’s students to meet highest international standards, a plan has been drawn up covering the coming five years to accredit all offered programs internationally.
“No Limits” is the slogan to be raised by us in the coming few years. This slogan has met Dubai’s Vision on future development in such a way as to reach furthest possible horizons of progress and prominence.
There is no limit to ambition, no limit to success and no limit to distinction or creativity.
You are most welcome to visit UMS and we promise to be up to and exceed your expectations of us, and please be sure that you will feel at home as members of one family.



Prof. Ahmed Ghonim
UMS President
