Build a Better Future with AUA

Integral to the success of our University, the $15 million capital campaign focuses on strengthening the institution to build a better future with AUA by integrating science and technology with the need to provide solutions toward the backdrop of the rapidly changing landscape taking hold in Armenia. The aim is to construct and furnish a new Science and Engineering Building, comprising forefront laboratories in areas like innovative drone solutions, chemical-mechanical challenges, electrical engineering transformations, machine learning-based innovations, renewable energy efforts, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). With the addition of this research and innovation center, AUA will augment its impact to engineering the future of Armenia by measurably boosting the country’s development potential and bringing the nation closer to prosperity and resilience.In preparation for the launch of the ‘Build a Better Future With AUA’ capital campaign, AUA has successfully raised half of its $15 million goal. We trust that this will create enthusiasm among other visionary philanthropists and foundations to help us reach the finish line.

We are incredibly grateful for the growth and generosity of our donor community and for what we have been able to accomplish together. The results we have achieved to date speak to our strong influence as a first-class institution of higher learning and to the belief that AUA supporters hold in the mission of our University and this new capital campaign.
