The Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT)- Ruwais Women’s campus (RWW) was inaugurated in 2008 in the Al Dhafrah city of Ruwais, as a sister college to the HCT-Madinat Zayed campuses. It offers a similar range of courses to the Madinat Zayed campuses, covering a range of fields in the Faculties of Engineering and Business.
It was established to improve accessibility to higher education for students living in more distant locations and who are keen to undertake post-secondary studies. The college is therefore ideally situated to serve students from Ruwais, Sila, Ghayathi, and surrounding towns.
The HCT-Ruwais Men’s campus (RWM) was opened in 2009 to meet the growing demand for evening courses, supporting the many national employees in the petrochemical industries of Al Dhafrah, who wanted to further their studies and gain Diploma, Higher Diploma and Bachelor degrees.
The newest addition to the Ruwais campus is the Engineering block, which opened in 2018. The building contains state-of-the-art classrooms and is equipped with labs to help students excel in their studies and to be apprised of the latest technological developments in their fields.
