About Kateb University

Our educational programs range across all disciplines and our professors strives to upgrade the educational resources for our present and prospective students.
One thing sounds to be very clear – research will be a key decision making element. Our responsibility is to help and educate and train our students to become people who will be valued both for their specialized knowledge, and for their ability to research, communicate and solve problems. To fulfill these responsibility we need to build strong network and partnerships with other research based universities and enhance the relationships the university has established already during the past years. It is equally important that we keep enhancing our network with institutions to ensure the ongoing relevance of our academic programs and the continued excellence of our teaching, learning and research.
