Khalifa University

Introduction

The newly established Khalifa University of Science and Technology combines the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology (MI), Khalifa University of Sciences, Technology and Research (KUSTAR), and the Petroleum Institute (PI) into one world-class, research-intensive institution, seamlessly integrating research and education to produce world leaders and critical thinkers. This merger was intended to consolidate the resources and infrastructure of three of the most respected academic institutions in the UAE and the Middle East. The resulting unified University reinforces Abu Dhabi’s and the UAE’s commitment to pursuing the development of world-class research and human capital initiatives.

KU is an independent entity with its own Board of Trustees that is accountable to the Government of Abu Dhabi for its charter.

Masdar Institute

The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology (MI) was established in 2007 in Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), as an independent non-profit graduate level research university focused on advanced energy and sustainable technology. The Institute has served to develop the intellectual and human capital of relevance to the UAE’s knowledge economy transformation through its high quality academics and research of relevance to local, regional and global needs.

In February 2017 MI merged with the Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research (KUSTAR), and the Petroleum Institute (PI), to produce one world-class, research-intensive institution, to develop world leaders and critical thinkers in applied science and engineering, called the Khalifa University of Science and Technology (KU).

At KU, Masdar Institute continues to play a critical role in the research structure and culture of the university, serving as an interdisciplinary research unit focused on long-term strategic priorities, which engages a critical mass of faculty. KU’s sustainability-focused research centers are primarily grouped under the Masdar Institute. As a research institute, MI also connects fundamental research with practical application through its partnership with local and international organizations, like the major renewable energy and sustainable urban development leader Masdar. The Masdar Institute campus is also now rebranded as the Masdar City Campus of Khalifa University.

Petroleum Institute

The Petroleum Institute University and Research Center (PI), as it was initially known, was established in 2001 to support the oil and gas industry of Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE. To achieve that goal, it developed and offered undergraduate and graduate engineering and research programs in areas of significance to the oil, gas and broader energy industries.

In 2006 the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 was announced, which provided the Petroleum Institute with further strategic direction for its academic and research activities. This resulted in a renewed mandate to support the development of the emirate’s human capital and contribute to Abu Dhabi’s strategic economic sectors, sustainable economic growth and economic diversification. The institute’s major affiliate has been the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), and it also partnered closely with BP, Japan Oil Development Company, Shell, and Total.

In February 2017, PI became part of the merger that resulted in the creation of Khalifa University. At Khalifa University, PI continues to play a critical role in the research structure and culture of the university, serving as an interdisciplinary research unit focused on long-term strategic priorities, which engages a critical mass of faculty. KU’s hydrocarbon production and exploration focused research centers are grouped under PI. As a research institute, PI also connects fundamental research with practical application through its partnership with local and international organizations, ADNOC. The Petroleum Institute campus is also now rebranded as the Sas Al Nakhl Campus of Khalifa University.
