Quality & Accreditation
The concept of education quality is one of the most critical concepts of the University of Science and Technology, since its early establishment in 1999; as it represented the first unit to ensure the quality of education in Yemen. This unit is now entitled “Quality Assurance and Accreditation Management”. The main objective for the formation of this unit was to enhance the quality of education and to develop service delivery procedures in several aspects, including all components of the educational system at the university, such as teaching, curricula, staff, students, infrastructure, equipment, regulations, educational processes and administration. The Quality Assurance and Accreditation Management Unit includes 4 sub units within the main office and 9 other sub units within the faculties of the University’s female Branches. In addition, the Quality Orientation Council was established in 2004 in an effort to implement the most substantial educational quality systems and standards.
