8 National Universities Participate in National Coders Program

The UAE's National Programme for Coders has announced the participation of 8 national universities to empower 20,000 students with coding skills, as part of the first phase of the Programme knowledge partnerships.

The National Programme for Coders will provide 500 training opportunities for undergraduates in local, regional, and international companies in the UAE and abroad.

The 8 Universities 

The list of participating national universities includes the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT), Khalifa University, Zayed University, University of Dubai, Abu Dhabi University (ADU), Mohammed bin Zayed University for Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI), American University in Dubai (AUD) and the University of Sharjah (UoS).

The Programme will also launch 3 digital libraries in collaboration with Amazon, Huawei, and IBM, to give undergraduates in the UAE the opportunity to learn how to use various programming applications and apply them practically, as well as to introduce them to the coding techniques and tools used in various sectors and markets.

These digital libraries provide important resources for undergraduates, enabling them to view various areas of specialised digital content and benefit from global experiences in coding-related technology, such as artificial intelligence, data science, designing digital platforms, creating electronic applications, cloud computing services, fifth generation technologies, and blockchain.

Special clubs for coders on campus

The national universities participating in the National Programme for Coders will launch special clubs for coders on their campuses, with the goal of refining their skills and providing them with the opportunity to participate in Hackathon competitions specialised in programming, both locally and globally. In the next phase, these universities will also organise several training workshops and academic lectures with top experts and specialists from the UAE and abroad.
