President's message

The new 2018-19 academic year is getting started, and I would like to welcome our students, both existing and new, and to welcome new faculty and staff who joined the Azm family this year. My sincere appreciation is extended to the efforts and good work of Azm University faculty and staff and for their high commitment to our students and to our mission over the past couple of years. I do also greatly acknowledge the efforts of our BOT in providing continuous guidance and support thus facilitating the development process of the University.


Efforts were persistently made to achieve the objectives of our young university and its vision to become an institute of quality higher education, and to be a positive learning community that builds on quality relationships and developing inquiring minds. The University has submitted several proposals to the MEHE for expanding existing faculties with new programs that address the needs of the 21st century. New programs in Chemistry, Criminology, English and Education have been approved by the MEHE and a full- fledge Faculty of Engineering is in the pipeline. The required space and infrastructure for these new programs have been secured through an ambitious expansion plan of our campus.

During the past academic year, faculties of the University have organized several exciting seminars and workshops, featuring presentations by our faculty, as well as pronounced visitors for our students and for the community at large. We are proud of our students who have been recognized with awards and prizes in local and national competitions. Our future plans will continue building on strong foundations, giving our graduates the skills to become successful in their future careers in local and global markets. We look forward to graduating the first batch of Azm students this year. We want it to be a memorable event.

The restructured remedial English program has proven to be a success. The English proficiency of our students has reached higher levels, and further modifications are being considered for the forthcoming academic year. The Continuing Education Center (CEC) had a very eventful year, and is having a busy agenda for the 2018-19 academic year.

It has been a year during which we have consolidated our financial aid programs for supporting students with ability and promise. We have attracted a number of outstanding applicants last year, and we have all the intention of attracting higher numbers for the 2018-19 academic year.

We are confident that this year will be quite remarkable as we continue with the growth process of our University. We are all moving forward. We are all aiming very high.
