Welcome to Hawassa University (HwU) located in the Great Rift Valley Region, and situated at the heart of the vibrant city of Hawassa, the capital of Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Regional State. HwU is a comprehensive University that aims at delivering teaching and learning; research, community and consultancy services. The University offers more than 60 fields of study in undergraduate and 43 fields of study in postgraduate programs in different faculties that include Natural & Computational Sciences, Medical & Health Sciences, Business & Economics, Governance and Development Studies, Social Sciences & Humanities, Technology & Informatics, Agriculture, Forestry & Natural Resources. More than 22,000 degree seeking students are attending HwU.
I believe that the key for the success of a University is a vibrant student, faculty and staff communities and the availability of facilities. You’ll find it all here at HwU. Moreover, you’ll be excited to study at HwU because of the excellent up-to-date modular based curriculum where students are evaluated based on European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
The vision statement of the University states that it aspires to be one of the best higher learning institutions in Africa in graduate and undergraduate education, and a center of excellence in teaching, research, and public services with the highest possible quality.
The University has many national and international links and collaborations in the area of research and education. Those of you who have had the opportunity, I hope would help HU in its internationalization process by forging partnerships and in the search for scholarships for our academic staff.
As a President, I invite you all to HwU whether you’re prospective students, community and international partners, or one of our more than 38,000 alumni. HwU is your resource for a lifetime. Hence, visit our University and our website.
You are always welcome!
Yosef Mamo, PhD
