  • Email received from Dubai Aerospace Enterprise confirming that DAE University (DAEU) and Dubai Aerospace Flight Academy are both closed, and no academic courses are offered. This page left for archive reference.
  • Date of closure was reportedly August 2008? DAEU student group Facebook page says "DAEU is Closing Down, No More DAEU after 31st of Aug. 2008." and "The dissolution of the University will be effective from August 31, 2008."
  • Dubai Aerospace Enterprise information available at www.dubaiaerospace.com.
  • Website www.daeuniversity.com is spam. Email address previously given as registry@daeuniversity.com is presumably inactive. Fax number +971-4-4038189 no longer in operation. Postal address was PO Box 506591, Dubai, UAE. Unknown where mail to this address goes now, doesn't appear to be connected with DAE any longer (most sources still list it as the DAE University address). Website www.daeuniversity.ac.ae returns an error.
25 September 2008
  • DAE University closed? The National reported on 10 September 2008 that DAE University had closed. Latest press release from DAE Capital (22 September 2008) has replaced DAE University with DAE Flight Academy in the list of DAE subsidiaries.
  • The Ministry of Higher Education list of accredited institutions does not include DAEU when checked.
  • DAEU website has homepage and a link to www.daeflightacademy.com for DAE Flight Academy, and no further information. Some DAE pages still available in search engine caches.
  • Tel +971-4-4038621 has a message referring callers to new telephone number +971-4-4038888.
  • Website www.daeuniversity.ac.ae redirects to www.daeuniversity.com/portal/
