Dr Bndani elaborated on the future approaches of the university, believing that graduate students must not limit their horizons to receiving a mere license but must creatively run start-ups connected to Scientific and Technological Parks, and be able to convert their ideas into product and wealth.
He said we try to improve the ranking of the university along with other universities, thus we effort to attract overseas students from countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Oman, and develop fields and research centers and establish constructive global academic ties.
