New York University has established itself as a Global Network University, a multi-site, organically connected network encompassing key global cities and idea capitals. The network has three foundational degree-granting campuses: New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, complemented by a network of eleven research and study-away sites across five continents. Faculty and students circulate within this global network in pursuit of common research interests and the promotion of cross-cultural and interdisciplinary solutions for problems both local and global.
Entering its ninth year, NYU Abu Dhabi has recruited a cohort of faculty who are distinguished in their research and teaching. NYU Abu Dhabi’s highly selective liberal arts college is complemented by faculty- led advanced research, sponsoring cutting-edge projects across the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences, and Engineering. The Engineering Division also takes pride in a thriving doctoral program, as well as in the postdoctoral researchers who have chosen to make NYUAD their research home.
