Jazan University plans $780m expansion
Riyadh, August 18, 2013
Saudi Arabia's Jazan University (JU) has undertaken an expansion project costing SR3 billion ($780 million), an official was quoted as saying.
A number of new colleges will be build under the project, Ibrahim Abu Hadi, public relations and information supervisor, said in an Arab News report.
Four medical colleges, a college for business administration, a number of support projects and an electrical conversion station will be built under the plan.
The expansion work is the second phase of the project, for which King Abdullah laid the foundation stone.
The university has drawn up a new strategy for the future by designing and implementing a strategic plan with the help of the SRI International (formerly the Stanford Research Institute), he said.
This project is intended to transform JU into an outstanding university characterised by continuous investment in knowledge creation, research excellence and community service.
