A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

Founded in 1988, the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) is the UAE’s largest applied higher educational institution and the nation’s first approved university economic free zone, empowering it to graduate companies in alignment with the directives of the UAE’s wise leadership.

Approximately 23,000 students attend 16 men’s and women’s campuses in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Al Dhafra region, Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, and Fujairah. Female students constitute 63% of the student body, which reflects the HCT’s key role in preparing Emirati females to contribute effectively to national development in the service of their country. Since 1991, the HCT has proudly awarded over 85,000 academic degrees to male and female graduates who have succeeded in applying the quality education gained during their study in HCT.

HCT, as a leading UAE government entity, is dedicated to positioning the country among the world's most advanced nations with a resilient and robust economy. HCT, through its dynamic business model, creates a harmonious and cohesive community that enjoys a high standard of lifelong learning opportunities in a safe and sustainable environment. This STARS submission showcases numerous HCT success stories achieved during its excellent journey in the last 5 years.
