Heliopolis University for Sustainable Development is the first non-profit university in the Middle East declaring sustainable development as its overall guiding principle.


Different on purpose


Heliopolis University for Sustainable Development (HU) pioneers the introduction of students and the community to sustainable development through a renewed understanding that integrates teaching, learning, research, and practice.

The university has adopted the “Project Competence Degree” concept, whose crowning feature is the intertwining of theory with business needs. Furthermore HU aims to develop social entrepreneurs who are able to face and overcome tomorrow's challenges through innovation, collaboration, and technology.


During the course of their studies, students will work on projects with partner companies using a problem-solving approach. Thus, they acquire new competences through studying and applying new skills in a real-life environment. This also allows the students to focus on an area of their choice, keeping motivation high throughout their studies. In the long term this will allow personal success to be meaningfully linked with business success.


The degree obtained is grounded in solid academic education coupled with practical experiences that simultaneously address business needs and inspire students to think innovatively.
