On the 14th of August 2014, Al-Furat Al-Awsat Technical University was emerged by the Foundation of Technical Education Authority along with other three technical universities. The Foundation of Technical Education Authority was established in 1969 and since then it graduated a considerable number of technical staff to fill the gap in the technical work force in Iraq. In this respect, Al-Furat Al-Awsat Technical University would retain the heritage of 48 years of Scientific and Technical educational expertise.
Countries that have experienced difficult circumstances like those of Iraq have developed vocational and technical education and training centers (TVET). These included Germany and South Korea where TVET exceeds 70% of the students in higher education followed by countries such as Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Thus, such countries have achieved substantial and remarkable growth.
The TVET institutions are very important branch of the Iraqi Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. Around 38% of higher educational students in Iraq are effectively enrolled in TVET institutions. However, percentage needs to be doubled through Al-Furat Al-Awsat Technical University along with the other three technical universities. In this respect, a number of morning and evening study programs was offered within the past two years. Also, multi specialised laboratories in different fields of study was established along with and expanding the cooperation frameworks with the Iraqi industry sector and international universities to develop and train the university academic and technical staff.
It is God’s success
