Tunis, 22 March 2017:
Plans to establish a university in Jufra have taken a step forward with a meeting in Tripoli today between the education ministry and heads of colleges in the district. Today’s meeting focussed on the difficulties in setting up the university which would incorporate a number of tertiary level colleges in the district.
In addition to the College of Engineering Technology in Hun, there are four faculties of Sirte University in Jufra: the faculties of arts and sciences and of medical technology in Hun and the faculties of education and of business administration in Waddan.
Since the revolution, a number of new universities have been created or announced – Ajdabiya, Fezzan, Sabratha and Tobruk.
Meanwhile, also today, the undersecretary at the education ministry, Adel Gomaa, visited the main campus of Sirte university to inspect progress towards it reopening its doors on 30 April.
