Dean's Message

Welcome to Rabdan Academy, where our commitment to excellence in higher education is at the heart of everything we do. As the Dean of Faculty, it is my pleasure to shed light on the pivotal role we play in shaping the unique academic landscape that defines Rabdan Academy.

Our academy stands out in the region for its exceptional range of undergraduate and graduate programs. From undergraduate studies in Homeland Security, Defense and Security, Crime Scene Policing and Security, to specialized graduate courses such as Intelligence Analysis and Policing and Security Leadership, we offer educational pathways that cater to the needs of today while keeping a keen eye on the evolving demands of our nation. Our programs are designed not just to educate, but to prepare graduates for positions of senior responsibility as innovative, capable, and resilient individuals who will serve our country with distinction. One of our core principles is a steadfast commitment to multidisciplinary. We believe that by proposing and developing courses that span multiple domains, we provide our students with a well-rounded education that is deeply relevant to their chosen fields. Moreover, we are proud of our global partnerships, particularly our collaboration with Cranfield University, which allows us to offer the MSc in Systems Engineering program, preparing students for professional practice in this vital area.

Diversity and inclusion is a cornerstone of our identity. Our faculty members come from over 32 different nationalities, bringing a wealth of international expertise to our classrooms. Likewise, we welcome students from across the globe, fostering a dynamic learning environment that embraces cultures and experiences from around the world.

In parallel, we recognize that our mission extends to our valued stakeholders. Rabdan Academy has forged strategic partnerships with leading academic and research institutions, thereby expanding our network in research, academic programs, and capacity building. Our role as the Dean's Office is to ensure that the educational needs of our stakeholders are at the forefront of our mission, and we are dedicated to fostering collaborative endeavors that contribute to their growth and success.

In closing, Rabdan Academy's uniqueness lies in its ability to transform cutting-edge knowledge into accessible learning experiences. We thrive through empowering our students to understand, learn, and explore. Together, we are creating a brighter and safer future, ready to protect our nation, its people, and its assets.
