Developed in cooperation with the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology (MIT), the Masdar Institute of Science and
Technology emulates MIT's high standards and offers Master's
and Doctoral-level degree programs focused on the science and
engineering of advanced energy and sustainable technologies.
MIT is working with Masdar to establish a sustainable,
homegrown academic and scientific research institute.
The Masdar Institute aims to become a centre of
high-caliber renewable energy and sustainability research
capable of attracting leading scientists and researchers from
around the world. It is developing an interdisciplinary and
collaborative research and development infrastructure and is
working to develop and promote the region's human capital. The
aim is to develop a pool of highly skilled scientists,
engineers, managers and technicians capable of accelerating
the development of indigenous technology and enterprise in the
region and globally.
The graduate programs integrate education, research and
scholarly activities to prepare graduate students to be
critical thinkers, innovators, future leaders, creative
scientists and researchers in a variety of engineering and
scientific disciplines. A combination of classroom learning
and thesis-driven interdisciplinary research will provide
students the knowledge and skills necessary to address some of
the world's most challenging problems.
The Masdar Institute is committed to fostering freedom of
education, learning and expression while striving to recruit,
nurture and enable an outstanding community of students,
