A Message from the Vice President for Graduate Studies and Scientific Research



Postgraduate studies and scientific research are considered the qualitative pillar of the academic process because they express the factors of excellence at the university through high competencies and creative ideas that address various societal issues and development projects. In this golden period in which the state paid attention to scientific research through Vision 2030 programs and the establishment of the Research and Innovation Authority, and the Ministry of Education was keen to support scientific research by providing institutional funding and supporting it financially on an annual basis, and after successive investments in qualifying national cadres in all specializations from universities. High-level international standards, all of these are strong supporting factors for distinguished scientific research and qualitative graduate studies.

Distinguished scientific research reflects on the efficiency and advancement of the educational process and raises the level of universities’ contribution in providing capable consulting expertise in their fields of specialization. Therefore, addressing development issues in society is the most important priority of universities, which contributes effectively to improving the national economy.
