The Centre for Sustainability Through Research & Education
CSRE and MODUL University Dubai provides all students in the undergraduate, graduate and post graduate programmes full support and guidance in completing their thesis requirements for successful graduation. Through research and thesis defense, students demonstrate their ability to have understood and synthesized the theoretical and practical knowledge and methods associated with their studies and are capable of dealing with theoretical knowledge in a practical manner to solve a practical problem.
Guided by the ideals of a The Humboldtian Model of Higher Education where study should be guided by humanistic ideals and free thought
Influenced by the economic theories that have become centerpieces of modern economic and business analysis
Overcome the institutionalized separation between basic research, which is dedicated to producing knowledge without regard to its usability, and applied research, which is carried out with a conscious view on its direct applicability in our daily lives.
Research Project Approval Guidelines
Action on proposals shall be taken within 15 days of their submission. Each research project must receive prior approval by the Head of Research Center before the research project can begin. The Head calls the Research Project Approval Committee (RPAC) to convene and discuss proposals. The RPAC consists of a full professor faculty member, who will chair the committee, one associate professor faculty member, two qualified faculty members from the same discipline as the submitted research project. By majority vote, the committee communicates a written recommendation to the Head of Research Center to approve or reject the project. The Head may waive specific requirements requested by the committee if found to be in the best interest to the University, without putting at risk the research project and the concerned investigator(s) and participants. The Head of Research Center sends a written notification of the final decision to the investigator(s) who submitted the research proposal.
Any proposed changes to the research project must be submitted to the RPAC for additional review and approval by the Head before any modifications are implemented. Once a research project has been approved, any further changes are subject to the approval of the Head of Research Center.
