The project is a 135,000 sqm extension to the existing Khalifa University, located on the plot adjacent to the current campus. The university extension will serve as the campus building for the Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research. This educational institution aims to pursue international recognition as a world-class research university and plays a major role in Abu Dhabi’s journey towards a diverse knowledge-based economy.
The university extension project includes the demolition of the secondary school currently occupying the plot, enhancement of an existing administration building, construction of structured parking and link bridges, and construction of a campus building for degree programs in high-technology sectors, such as aerospace, biomedicine and healthcare, national security, telecommunications and information technology, nuclear energy, transport, and logistics.
