The University has over 1,200 students enrolled for various degreesfor its first years. The population of the students continues to increase because of quality teaching, relevant and innovative programmes that meet their academic and professional needs and flexibility of our part time programmes for working class. The University innovatively influences human development through holistic education and generation, acquisition, preservation and dissemination of knowledge and skills, with emphasis on technology, medicine, education, business, agro-veterinary science, engineering, allied health and related disciplines. The University provides equal opportunity in producing competitive and hands-on graduates that contribute to national and global development.
The University is located at the heart of Mogadishu, making it easily accessible and the supporter of academic activity at all times. Mogadishu is a coastal city and Somalia’s capital making it a hub of educational centres. The buzzing city life gave the University an upper hand in promoting education as an engine of change and transformation in society. Furthermore, we believe that it is important to cultivate in students a desire to understand, a capacity for tolerance, and an ability to appreciate the ethnic and cultural diversity that make up humankind. It is the mission of the University to develop in students these abilities and attitudes, and in so doing to provide them an education that directs them toward a meaningful and successful life.
