UMS President's Message

Dear Distinguished Students,

I take great pleasure in wholeheartedly welcoming you to the University of Modern Sciences. At UMS, we strive to reach a distinguished academic level that is aligned with the top-quality and excellent reputation of the higher education system of the United Arab Emirates.
From the beginning, we had a target in mind to reach: Be a dynamic participant and play an effective part in the success story of the Emirate of Dubai in particular, and the UAE in general. Therefore, we have always been keen to develop academic programs that respond to labor market needs and its varying, ever-increasing demands.
Everyone at UMS takes the diverse interests of our students into consideration. We try to provide them with an appropriate academic environment, so they can excel and advance in their careers. Along the way, UMS emphasizes practical learning to improve student skills.

The principle that higher education is open to all and the importance of science and scientists is deeply rooted in the wisdom of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. To preserve these principles, UMS offers scholarships of up to 50% for all programs at both the bachelor’s and master’s levels. UMS fully believes that higher education institutions have to play a sincere role to create and offer affordable learning opportunities to the knowledge seeker. We faithfully contribute to the development plans of UAE society which will reflect into the value of knowledge in the progress and welfare of nations.
Moreover, UMS spares no effort to secure distinguished partnerships not only with national governmental and non-governmental bodies, but also with the most reputable international universities and scientific research centers worldwide. Such partnerships genuinely reflect the bright image of Dubai as a supporter of development and scientific research that benefit the entire society. An example of these strategic partnerships is our cooperation with North Dakota State University in the United States. Various studies have already been carried out by the two Universities and the Dubai Government in the fields of Big Data, Smart Cities, and Smart Transportation Solutions.
Because we are keen to help UMS students meet the highest international standards, a plan has been drawn-up that covers the next five years to gain international accreditation for all programs offered. This keeps with the UMS slogan of NO LIMITS for the coming few years. This slogan has met Dubai’s Vision on future development in such a way as to reach the 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 start your journey of study at UMS and we promise, as much as we can, to make it most useful, joyful, and meaningful.


Prof. Ahmed Ghonim
UMS President
