“Heriot-Watt Dubai campus is one of the finest universities in the region in terms of education. The system is the same as the one in Edinburgh campus with lots of good professors especially in the engineering school. The engineering labs may be a bit smaller in size but are very well equipped with all the necessary tools for learning. The 2 IT Labs are large enough and the required softwares are available. Most of the staff here is friendly and helpful”
