30 May 2010
  • Apparently construction work for the new HCT RAK Women's campus hadn't started last year, as previously reported. A Khaleej Times article 30 May 2010 about graduating students from RKM said that HCT Ras Al Khaimah colleges are excited about the setting up of new campus for the Ras Al Khaimah Women's College, the construction of which will commence next month.
  • The same report said new programs would be starting according to the director, Dr Robert D Moulton - "We will also be starting new bachelor's degree programmes in Mechatronics and Applied Media Technology. Ras Al Khaimah Colleges will also be having new Master's programmes this fall in Information Technology, Executive MBA and Education,"
  • It wasn't clear if the new programs would be offered at RKM, RKW, or both colleges.
30 October 2009
  • Construction work on the new RAK Women's campus has started according to a report in The National newspaper.
  • New campus completion date planned for February / March 2011. Add on the usual UAE construction delays and maybe end of 2011 is realistic.

  • Sheikh Mohammed, the Ruler of Dubai, visited the women's college and reviewed some new construction plans. WAM reported that "Shaikh Mohammad approved a design and signed it. He also ordered that the building be built on modern basis, to accommodate 2000 students from all around Ras Al Khaimah."
  • RAK Women's College has been in sort of temporary buildings since it opened in 1993.

  • Ras Al Khaimah HCT Women's College is one of many Higher College of Technology (HCT) campuses in the UAE. HCT is a federally funded tertiary training institute for UAE nationals, with courses taught in English.
