Events for the day will include a college fair featuring the innovative projects of current students.
The research-intensive university has held numerous other events to welcome its incoming students such as recreational and educational activities, academic counseling and iPad training sessions. New students also took proficiency exams during orientation week.
Additionally, UAEU launched a special initiative for 2016-17 academic year in which students volunteer to act as registration ambassadors for new students. These ambassadors help new students register for courses and encourage them to be responsible and team players.

The university is comprised of nine colleges which cover the academic disciplines of business and economics, science, law, education, humanities and social sciences, information technology, food and agriculture, medicine and health sciences, and engineering.
