University Rector’s Message​

Prof. Al-Qassem Mohammed Abass

You are most welcome to Sana’a University – the First and the ‘Mother of all universities’ in Yemen.

Since its establishment in 1970, the University has demonstrated commitment to the policy of excellence and innovation based on its mission and vision. It has expanded its academic programs to meet the needs of society and the local, regional and international labor markets, moving forward to become the largest university in the Republic of Yemen with 21 specialized faculties and 23 administrative, scientific and research centers.


The University has been wholly committed to providing and applying the highest standards of quality assurance and academic accreditation. It currently strives to get international accreditation of the World Federation of Medical Education (WFME Standards) for the Faculty of Medicine and ABET for both the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Computer and Information Technology.


In order to keep pace with recent trends and methods of education, the University has reviewed its academic programs and study plans with a view to linking the specializations offered to society and the local, regional and international labor market.

Believing in the importance of technology in university education, we always seek to develop the technical aspects of the University by connecting all the University buildings and facilities to the fiber-optic network. Moreover, the technical and software aspects have been developed and advanced programs have been introduced to serve students and faculty members. The automation of all University facilities will be completed in order to promote a better university education.

I wish our students a grand success and more progress!
