Project abstractJamhuriya University of Science & Technology (JUST) is a private, accredited higher education institution that has multiple campuses in the capital city. JUST is searching for Finnish higher education institutions, companies and investors to help building university hospitals and campuses in Mogadishu and other states.
Project descriptionJUST was established in Mogadishu, Somalia in 2011 by a group of Somali scholars and intellectuals to fill the existing gap in the higher education system in the country by providing quality education and practicing ethical professionalism.
JUST emphasizes the importance of a solid base of general skills and knowledge through a carefully designed Core Curriculum, which was conceived with an eye to the needs and requirements of Somali society and its labor market. The university strives to fulfill its mission as the country’s 'home of quality education' through creativity and innovation in the design and delivery of higher education. Currently the University offers six faculties: Medicine and Health Sciences, Engineering, Economics and Management, Computer and Information Technology, Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences and Education. JUST has MOUs and other agreements with universities and other professional institutions in the US, Asia, Europe and Africa. As part of its future, the university is planning to build state-of-the-art campuses and teaching hospital in its 7.5 acres of land (30,000 m2).
So far the university has graduated hundreds of professionals in most of the above faculties. The university is looking for Finnish partners and mentors to replicate the Finnish model of technological and scientific rigor in higher education.
