Masdar Institute currently has 96 world-class faculty members from 30 countries, enabling students to benefit from a unique range of insights and experiences.

Masdar Institute faculty are graduates from leading international institutions including MIT, Stanford University, University of California – Berkeley, University of Michigan, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, University of Waterloo, Oxford University, Cambridge University and Harvard University.

Our collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) enables us to adopt a comprehensive approach and focus on research that is distinctive, offering the necessary ingredients for faculty and students to flourish within a unique learning environment at the heart of Masdar City, Abu Dhabi – an emerging global hub for future energy.

A number of Masdar Institute’s full-time faculty may spend up to one year at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, working with MIT faculty members on joint research projects – especially topics relevant to Abu Dhabi - and audit graduate level classes that they will eventually teach at Masdar Institute.
