"I chose to study IT because I love computers and technology since I was a little boy. I got my first ICDL when I was 14 years old, and I participated in the regional olympics in the informatics field (came out second on my province). So I always had that passion. As per why I chose AU. Because I was looking for a distinguished and prestigious place in where I can pursue a degree. I was studying medicine back home and didn’t work out well for me so I had to pick a place that could help me succeed in a better way than my previous school.
Because of CoVid-19, I didn’t have the chance to fully exploit my college experience in AU. However, I have made a lot of great friendships with both students and teachers. It is so fun, so easy, and I hope to return the favor to AU someday the same way they treated me."

Also, AU is one of the top 35 universities in the Arab world. moreover, the facilities and the studying rooms are well prepared and provided with the highest technologies that any student need in their study. And there are a lot of partnerships that AU made like google and Huawei that expands our study and develop our skills.
Life in AU is very interesting the environment in the university is comfortable even though there are different nationalities but there are no barriers in commentating also there are a lot of activities that are conducted like exhibitions that including famous companies or competitions that make your student life more enjoyable."

"AU was the only university offering the Information Systems program in its contents and technology values, which represent the Information System values in business industry.
AU was the best choice for a working student with the flexibility in timing and classes' sections opening taking in consideration the day and evening working students.
AU gave the opportunity to introduce two major industries and fields in the market (Technology and Business Management). Giving the first step, clear overview, and deep drilling in particular courses to build the knowledge and skill of improvement helped me in personal to merge my career experience in Customer Experience Management with Information Systems knowledge."

"I have had my share of experiences in previous universities that have not gone well previously, studying Mechanical Engineering as I thought that that was a secure major that would propel me into a great future, and while I can’t blame any institute I have previously studied and only misguided actions I have taken personally, recommendations from my sister -which is an AU graduate- and my uncle have made me consider Ajman University as my first choice after I have completed my national service. The cherry on top is that I made the decision to pick Networking and Security as my major, which have always been a deep passion of mine and something I practiced as a hobby ever since I was younger.
Networking and Security have always been a deep passion of mine ever since I got my hands on the legendary WRT54GL and started to optimize the speed by picking the least congested 2.4Ghz channel in the vicinity. As to I have come to regret later, I only thought of Networking and Security, or IT in general as a hobby and did not choose to pursue it as career, I went with the stereotype that Engineering is the default choice and went with it. Due to personal mistakes and the lack of passion towards engineering my previous attempt did not have a happy ending, so when I got the chance to try again I chose the major I love and the one I had the most knowledge about.
If I was asked to summarize my experience in Ajman University, caring and nurturing would be the first two words that come to my mind. In regards to the academic life in AU, throughout all my interactions with staff from the college of Engineering and IT, all have worked hard for the students best interest. I have studied in two Universities in UAE previously and went abroad for a brief delegations program to study in one of the largest universities in South Korea so I can say this with confidence, from professors to teaching assistants here in Ajman University, they want to properly teach students and put a lot of care and effort into that, and it truly shows.
When talking about the student life, the sports complex and the students clubs bring a sense of belonging when you find people who have the same interests as you. The introduction of the student hub was a really huge positive for me personally as it gave me a place to either wind down and relax between classes, or meet up with my friends and have a study session before a test.Another thing I really appreciate from the AU community is that they truly listen to the students, during the pandemic there are many things that had to change, and when surveys given to students asking them about their needs helping them cope with the big change that occurred, it just made me feel proud to be a part of this community."

"In fact, I chose to study at Ajman University after a comparison with several universities that offer the same program, which is information technology (networks and security), and the comparison was based on several things such as education quality, tuition fees, location...etc., and so I chose to study at Ajman University.
For me, experiencing academic life through the online was difficult and challenge at the same time, but in my opinion the student’s life is a foundation for learning and growing. So, me as a student i must face all types of situations in order to overcome any obstacles i will faced in the future. "
Hifsa Tayyab Malik
"We are living in the age of technology. I have always believed and seen that IT is an all time progressing and evolving field. Nowadays we rely on networking and connectivity more than ever. I chose this major as I wanted to challenge myself to enter this competitive environment and become a part of this field. A bachelors in this stream followed by a masters will undoubtably lead me to a rewarding career. Thanks to Ajman University for being one of the few universities in the UAE to deliver this course.
Although Ajman University challenges us academically throughout the semesters, managing your time and putting in consistent effort will surely give you a sense of accomplishment regardless of your grades.
Even though I have not personally experienced much of a social life in this university due to the pandemic, I am keen to socialize and participate in physical activities once our lives get back to normal."
