Prof.Adel M. Awadallah

IUG President

I am delighted to welcome you to the website of the Islamic University of Gaza (IUG). I hope you will spend some time familiarizing yourself with the website in order to learn more about IUG. I hope that this will enable you to discover opportunities to connect with students and staff and to work with us on issues of mutual interests.

IUG and since its establishment in 1978 is continuously evolving and steadily progressing towards the achievement of its goals. The inter-disciplinary environment, the wide range of programs, and the diversity of curricula are designed not only to prepare our graduates to meet rigorous professional demands, but also to nurture them, hopefully into leaders of enterprise and society. In our research, as in all else, we are oriented to the needs of society, and work closely with industry, government, municipalities and other entities. We also look for strengthening our relationships with universities, institutions, and organizations all over the world.

Today, the university is a vibrant community of more than 20,000 students and about 600 academic staff members, comprising 11 major faculties: Medicine, Engineering, Information Technology, Nursing, Science, Health Sciences, Commerce, Education, Arts, Sharea and Law and Usoul Eldeen. About 50,000 alumni have made their mark in industry, academia, and the public and private sectors, in Palestine and abroad. A key issue in our mission is to graduate persons of ability and conviction. Through commitment, determination, and faith, the university is well on its way to taking its rightful place as a leading institution of Palestinian education. The university has an outstanding track record in research with a high level of success in securing national competitive grants and other publicly funded grants.

Here at IUG Website, you will find much more detailed information about the people, programs and events that make up the fabric of this place. If you are new here, I offer you a warm welcome; I hope you will take time to learn more about what makes IUG special. Finally, I take this opportunity to thank the academic and administrative staff for their distinguished collective efforts in making our university a success story and a leading body for higher education in the region.
