10 August 2010 - Biotechnology University College opens
- Biotechnology University College (BUC) in Dubai also called 'University College of Biotechnology'?
- Opening announced in press release and WAM news report 10 August 2010.
- BUC supported by the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ADCCI).
- BUC students have the option to study for a second Bachelor Degree in Biotechnology from the State University of New York at Oswego in the USA.
- Press release said that Prof. Magdy Madkour, Dean of the BUC said that all programs offered by the College are accredited and licensed by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in the UAE, which sounds a bit generous. The CAA website only lists the BSc in Biotechnology as accredited (checked 10 August 2010).
- Prof Madkour is, or was, Head of Biotechnology, Arid Lands Agricultural Research Institute, Faculty of Agriculture, Ain Shams University, Egypt?
- He was also Assistant Director General for International Cooperation at the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) from 2004-2006?
- Website at www.buc.ac.ae appears to be mostly under construction, only contact details and general background information found.
- Same contact details as National Academy for Research and Development (NARD) according to the UAE Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA). Location is the old Zayed University campus, Street 7A, Al Twar / Al Tawar. Location and contact details are the same as listed on the BUC website (except they say they're in "Al Tuwar," which is the same as Al Twar).
- Additional telephone number is +971-4-2646506?
- Website domain given as www.nard.ae in CAA information but that forwards to www.nard-uae.com which is spam.
