Khalifa University 

Khalifa University (Arabic: جامعة خليفة) is a public research university located in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

It was ranked as the 181st best university in the world by QS World University rankings of 2023.

Founded in 2007, Khalifa University was established to support a knowledge-based economy that will contribute to the state’s post-oil future.

For their advanced medical training centre, we were commissioned to design three spaces to support hands-on simulation-based training for emergency service students.

The rooms included a 48 m2 space, a standard 4×4 classroom, and a unique 4-sided 64 m2 space that replicated outdoor scenarios.

A helicopter ambulance simulator was also deployed to allow students to train in that uniquely challenging environment.

Environments are then projected around the helicopter, creating a sense of motion and enhancing the believability of the simulation.
