Al Moghtaribeen University Of Science And Technology
At the outset, the idea of establishing MU was initiated by a group of expatriates in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and it was adopted by the 4th Expatriates Conference in 2000 – under the auspices of the Sudanese Expats Organization. The National Voluntary Organization for Supporting Higher Education in Sudan – situated in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – which consists of a group of Sudanese experts and university professors – prepared a complete study aiming at the establishment of the non-profit company to start a university. The President of Sudan Marshal Omer Al-Bashir during the 5th Expatriates Conference in 2005 gave his consent and approval of the project as it meets the demands of the large sector of the Sudanese expats.
Reasons and Justifications for the Establishment of AlMughtaribeen University (MU)
1. To address the problem of Certificate Equivalency between Arabian and other foreign High School Certificates on one side and the Sudan School certificate on the other. Such equivalency has always resulted in deduction in student’s marks he/she scored in his/her Arabian or other foreign school certificate, a process that narrows his chances in reaching to the college he wants to study.
2. To increase and create further available opportunities for students holding Arabian certificate to grant them studying in their home land and at their preferred colleges, such as medicine or engineering. This is something that wouldn’t be possible in the absence of AlMughtaribeen University.
3. Tuition fees at private universities or on special admission at the government universities in Sudan have been steadily rising. This creates heavy burdens on student’s parents, especially that living cost in most migration countries has also been rising steadily and things are no longer as easy as they were in the past.
4. Students who are sent to study in foreign countries are subjected to huge moral and social risks due to differences in moral codes in those countries. This is besides the financial burdens that parents have to bear. All such difficulties are reflected on the student’s behavior and academic conduct while he is away from his/her family.
5. Poor patriotic feelings towards home land among those students who have spent all of their school and university years outside their country. This may form a future risk of alienation and lack of national, social or cultural belongingness.
6. The strong and firm determination of the Sudanese working abroad (SWA) to positively share and participate in the total development strategy for Sudan as part of their commitment and in acknowledgment towards their home land.
To become a center for excellence and an axle for change management. To quest towards an advanced Sudan that is harrying up towards progress and development on the bases of proper scientific planning and research.
