President's Message

Praise be to Allah, peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and his companions at all after that:

On behalf of the Hormuud University faculty, administration, and staff, I encourage you to visit our campus and website. We are very happy to become acquainted with you and to help you succeed in your educational journey.

Universities are defined by the quality and commitment of their faculty, and great universities are defined by having engaged teachers and scholars who bring new energy, ideas, perspectives and partnerships to our students, to each other, and to the university. While you may be new to HU, please know this is now your university and your voice matters. I strongly urge you to get involved and bring your ideas and experiences to the forefront at Hormuud University.

Hormuud University, the uniqueness – at the national level – in the education of engineering and other scientific specialties is our main aim that we make great efforts to achieve it. As a HU community, we believe that unity is a power. We are also committed to the academic excellence, search for goodness, serving to society, fostering innovation and creativity and freedom from discrimination.

HU is located on a safe, welcoming and beautiful campus in Mogadishu (KM 13). Our university has an excellent relationship with the community and with the entire region.
In 2015, since my appointment by the Board of Trustees for the leadership position of HU, we (I and my team) have begun planning for extending the university faculties; from only engineering faculty to five functioning faculties. The added four faculties are, namely, faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, Economics and Management Sciences, Arts and Social Sciences, Sharia & Leadership and Agriculture. We have done all of these extensions to open up new academical opportunities to the newly admitted students to the university in order to participate in developing the various aspects of Somali Society.

The Hormuud University seeks for academic excellence in all of its academic programs. Our major strength lies in a strong team of highly qualified faculty and dedicated staff to deliver first class education at an affordable price To broaden the educational and philosophical horizons of our students, we have developed the University Curriculum by adding other very important subjects to it, such as Islamic Culture and Somali Studies, because we don’t want graduate students who are poor in the Islamic spirituality and lack of the spirit of nationalism. We really want to put out a perfect student. We also believe in the power of our students to create opportunities for themselves and others. Therefore, we have launched the Karama Center for Research & Development. For research, to participate in the description and investigation of the current social problems of Somali Society. For development, to equip our students with the very necessary skills in the market. Because, we have really recognized that the students not only need a traditional university degree, but also, they require building for their capacity so as to enhance their professional skills and we are doing this under CISCO programs and Karama Center for Research & Development Training Courses. Finally, we will be doing our utmost efforts to ensure our goals and to maintain our core values across all of these faculties and institutions of Hormuud University. However, we welcome you to participate in the endless endeavors and opportunities at HU, joining talented scholars, scientists, writers and others to teach, perform, create, and study in a place to where everyone belongs. Towards Quality and Excellence
