CTED – At home at NYU Abu Dhabi

CTED is part of New York University of Abu Dhabi, a recently established liberal arts college closely connected to NYU New York. CTED is located in the heart of NYUAD’s Downtown Campus. This is the ideal location for CTED, as NYUAD’s ambitions are the same as ours: to be a world center for research and learning.

The first class of NYUAD started in the fall of 2010. It comprises of 150 students from 39 different countries who speak a total of 43 languages between them. It’s very appropriate then for NYUAD to be located in Abu Dhabi – a city where residents from 120 countries make up 80% of the population and where one hears English, Hindi, Malayalam, Urdu, Farsi, Tagalog and French spoken as often as Arabic.
