Speech of Al-Mustaqbal University President

Prof. Dr. Hasan Shakir Majdi

Since its establishment in the year (2010) under the name of Al-Mustaqbal University College, Al-Mustaqbal University has been committed to becoming one of the leading and distinguished universities, a scientific and cultural institution that plays a role in preparing specialized academic staff that contributes to the building and development of modern Iraq and the preparation of a promising generation enjoying opportunities for a decent and secure life.
The university aspires to be among the leading universities, not only locally but also regionally and globally. The university leadership has been committed to achieving this goal, despite the diversity of their directions and visions, everyone's efforts integrate towards achieving excellence and reaching international standards.
Al-Mustaqbal University has evolved since its establishment over the years to include 11 Colleges (College of Pharmacy, College of Dentistry, College of Nursing, College of Engineering and Technologies, College of Law, College of Administrative Sciences, College of Arts and Humanities, College of Health and Medical Techniques, College of Physical Education and Sport Science, College of Science, College of Fine Arts) and 34 scientific departments covering various scientific, humanitarian, medical, and engineering disciplines.
The university's infrastructure has witnessed vertical and horizontal urban and engineering development over the past ten years to accommodate its current location. Numerous buildings have been constructed to house the best classrooms of various sizes, medical laboratories, clinics, student clubs, and libraries. We have established a university environment that meets modern requirements and academic atmosphere, making it attractive to students from all neighboring provinces.
The university has made significant scientific progress and has ranked at the forefront in various fields, including international rankings, scientific research, and publications in international repositories. The university has also played a fundamental role in sustainable development, serving dozens of needy families inside and outside Babil Province and contributing widely to volunteer campaigns and student activities, distinguishing itself by ranking first among private universities and colleges. We are proud of the university's achievement of being ranked first in the Iraqi National Ranking (IRU) launched by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
We have introduced developmental training programs for university faculty, and our care and concern for students have been significant because they are the fruit of the university's work and its good performance. We have worked hard to improve their standards and develop their capabilities. Indeed, a group of university students has been sent to some reputable regional and international universities to gain practical experience, benefiting from experiences outside Iraq. As for the curriculum, we have ensured that colleges and their scientific departments regularly review the curricula and work to develop them to keep pace with scientific advancements and meet the evolving needs of society.
We have also worked towards rehabilitating and developing the university's infrastructure, launching the "Towards a Sustainable University" project to make the university an attractive scientific and healthy environment. Our attention has also been directed towards scientific and research laboratories, allocating a large proportion of the university's budget for this purpose and for purchasing essential scientific equipment. Today, those efforts and achievements are evident to anyone visiting the university, thanks be to Allah.
It is worth noting that work at the university, at all levels and directions, proceeds according to a carefully crafted strategic plan, endorsed by the university council. This plan is characterized by realism, meaning it is suitable for available resources and feasible for implementation. It is also flexible, meaning it aligns with developments and responds to changing circumstances, making it open to updates and improvements, which has happened on multiple occasions. Therefore, the university's progress and advancement are based on carefully selected steps and in-depth studies.
With all that has been achieved, we aspire for more and hope for further accomplishments, which can only be achieved through concerted efforts and the synergy of resources, with the help and guidance of Allah.
And finally, I say: Al-Mustaqbal University is committed to achieving the highest results in all scientific, academic, and research fields, advancing in serving the Iraqi community, and achieving the highest goals in all areas that contribute to the advancement of knowledge, and graduating students who possess all the qualities of knowledge and enable them to work in all sectors of the state.
